There is so much noise out there around what foods to eat, yet the ultimate pathway to better health, it revolves around limiting/eliminating foods that are harmful to your bodily functions.
To understand what you need to eliminate, you must first track what you are putting into your body in the first place.
Are you reading food labels?
Do you ask the restaurant server what oils they use?
When you buy your groceries are you purchasing whatever has the cheapest ingridients? Or the healthiest?
Track what you are eating and see if anything on the list below is showing up on your daily food intake list.
What foods to eliminate:
Processed oils: corn, canola, vegetable, peanut, soy, etc.
Grains (with or without gluten)
SUGAR!!! This is the TOP thing that should be cut to help improve your overall health. Includes high fructose corn syrup and other processed carbohydrates, as well as alcohol of any sort.
OTHER KEY TAKEAWAYS:
The way food is brought to us these days is often not very healthy or ethical, especially when you look at the dairy industry.
Corn & soy are two of the most genetically-modified foods on the market today (about 95% of the corn & soy found in stores) and they can be highly inflammatory.
Grains, corn, and soy are all "recommended" as the base of our diet and this is WRONG.
Sugar is the #1 cause of heart disease and diabetes every year. This is the most inflammatory thing you can be consuming. This includes ANY processed carbohydrates!
Learn to read a nutrition label if you don't know how. But even if you don't learn...that's why going back to REAL foods with 1 ingredient makes this all easier.
