Don’t Eat What You See on TV!
We’re all aware of the importance of doing our own research on projects. In particular, we need to be extra discerning about what we see on the television when it comes to food advertisements.
Michael Pollan, an American author, journalist and activist in his book “Food Rules: An Eater’s Manual” explains that eating foods that are heavily advertised on television should be avoided. The book outlines 64 rules based on his experience and research that indicate why these are important.
One of the biggest misconceptions is that of sugar and high fructose corn syrup in processed foods. Many food manufacturers made the misleading claim that their foods contain no sugar but instead they are rich in high fructose corn syrup instead.
High fructose corn syrup is a sweetener made from corn starch that’s increasingly found in more sweet drinks and processed foods. It’s estimated that the average American increases their consumption of HFCS from zero to over 60 pounds per person per year. As a result, obesity rates have tripled and diabetes has increased sevenfold.
It’s very important to understand that good health starts with what we eat on a daily basis. If we want to be healthy we need to eat more founds that are found in nature.
A diet consisting of green leafy vegetables, dark skinned fruits, oily fish, nuts, seeds and legumes are all recommended for best health. It’s best to avoid starchy carbohydrates and processed ‘junk’ foods, along with sugary drinks and other items. These foods promote inflammation in the body and this leads to illness in the long term.
If you want to improve your health, it’s wise to take the appropriate nutrients through a healthy lifestyle program and supplement regime. Supplements such as Serrapeptase are highly recommended as these can dissolve the inflammation in the body, reducing the chances of disease from developing.
