8 Foods To Avoid to Stay Healthy (Part 1)
One of the quickest ways to reach optimal health is to know which foods to avoid. By having this information, you’ll automatically begin to choose foods that will provide benefits rather than negative consequences for your health and vitality. Some of these foods may surprise you based on the contradictory information provided by companies who have a vested interest in you buying them. However, I’ve outlined specific reasons why it’s important to do your best to avoid them. 1. White Bread and Pasta White bread and pasta are simple carbohydrates, which means that they have been stripped of all their nutrients and therefore act like a sugar in the body. In order for the body to properly digest these foods, it must rob existing vitamins and minerals such as calcium and magnesium from its storage banks, depleting nutrients rather than providing them. Additionally, the body only needs a limited supply of glucose to fuel its cells. Therefore, once you’ve reach...
Avoid These Four Foods That Contribute to Obesity
Face your problems head on. Look them directly in the metaphoric eye until they blink or turn away completely. There is no substitute for courage. The very brave die a single death while others die thousands of deaths. “I have not yet begun to fight,” is chiseled in stone at the Naval Academy in Annapolis. There is no monument there stating, “Let’s get out of here.” After all, a winner never quits and a quitter never wins. Stand your ground. Flight is not the stuff that shapes triumph. No one ever retreated to victory. After all, are we mice or are we men? (or women if you please). Then again and on the other hand, run away. Turn your back on some problem area and motor in the opposite direction as fast as your legs will carry you. The fight has not yet begun because surrender has already taken place. For those who think you a mouse…well, whatever. Much can be accomplished through avoidance. If you are one of the millions of Americans who struggl...

Avoid Liquid Calories to Keep Weight Down and Diabetes Under Control
Earlier studies that I reviewed here indicated that when we take our food in liquid form rather than in a solid one, we consume more calories that day. And now a big new study shows that when we cut back on the amount of liquid calories that we consume, we do lose weight. But, unlike the earlier studies, the new one finds only one liquid culprit: sugar-sweetened beverages. No other type of beverage is associated with a change in weight. This is good news for people with diabetes. More than 85 percent of us are overweight or obese, according to a survey by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Six other beverages tested in the new study had little or no effect on the weight of the participants. They are diet drinks sweetened with artificial sweeteners, milk with four different amounts of fat, 100 percent fruit and vegetable juices, coffee and tea with sugar, coffee and tea without sugar, coffee and tea sweetened with artificial sweeteners, and all sorts of alcoholic b...
