Top 10 Foods You Should Stop Eating

TSM

Dr. Jason Maggio joined us this morning and revealed that many health issues can be avoided by making a change in your diet.

Dr. Maggio suggested that the following 10 foods should be avoided if you want to make a positive change in your health.

Sugar

Sugar is everywhere. Try and limit processed foods, desserts and snacks with excess sugar. Opt for fruit instead.

Common Cooking Oils

Safflower, soy, sunflower, corn, and cottonseed. These oils promote inflammation and are made with cheaper ingredients.

Trans Fats

Trans fats increase bad cholesterol, promote inflammation, obesity and resistance to insulin. They are in fried foods, fast foods, commercially baked goods, such as peanut butter and items prepared with partially hydrogenated oil, margarine and vegetable oil.

Dairy

While kefir and some yogurts are acceptable, dairy is hard on the body. Milk is a common allergen that can trigger inflammation, stomach problems, skin rashes, hives and even breathing difficulties.

Feedlot-Raised Meat

Animals who are fed with grains like soy and corn contain high inflammation. These animals also gain excess fat and are injected with hormones and antibiotics. Always opt for organic, free-range meats who have been fed natural diets.

Red and Processed Meat

Red meat contains a molecule that humans don’t naturally produce called Neu5GC. Once you ingest this compound, your body develops antibodies which may trigger constant inflammatory responses. Reduce red meat consumption and replace with poultry, fish and learn cuts of red meat, once a week at most.

Alcohol

Regular consumption of alcohol causes irritation and inflammation to numerous organs, which can lead to cancer.

Refined Grains

“Refined” products have no fiber and have a high glycemic index. They are everywhere: white rice, white flour, white bread, pasta, pastries… Try and replace with minimally processed grains.

Artificial Food Additives

Aspartame and MSG are two common food additives that can trigger inflammation responses. Try and omit completely from the diet.

Fill in the Blank

Do you constantly have headaches or feel tired? Sometimes, you may develop an allergy to a food and not even know it. Coffee, certain vegetables, cheese — there might be a trigger you aren’t even aware of.

Try and take a few foods out to see how you feel and slowly incorporate them back in to see if there might be a hidden culprit lurking in your diet! Many foods have been linked to obesity, increased risks of numerous diseases and even death in some cases.
