This Food Makes Me Angry!
It’s not your imagination.
There actually ARE foods out there that are specifically designed to make you crave them.
I’m talking about from start to finish: their ingredients, taste, packaging, and marketing – basically, these foods are created to make you want MORE, MORE, MORE.
But the thing is, these foods are also some of the absolute WORST things you can eat, because they’re linked with obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and a long list of other chronic conditions.
(If you can’t tell, this gets me a little fired up.)
This month I am talking about SIMPLE steps you can take to get – and stay – on track with your healthy habits.
One of the BEST steps you can take is to avoid these foods if at all possible.
I’m talking about ULTRA-PROCESSED FOODS – factory-made cookies, chips, breads, boxed meals, frozen meals, etc.
These foods activate your brain’s reward centers – making you crave them, and even causing you to overeat.
The difference between PROCESSED and ULTRA-PROCESSED FOODS is that when you do anything to a food – like cooking it – it’s technically a form of processing. So that means sauteed greens and roasted chicken are “processed” foods.
BUT ultra-processed foods are made from low-quality, highly inflammatory ingredients (unhealthy fats, added sugar, and highly refined grains).
As a result, they’re low in fiber, protein, and valuable plant chemicals and other micronutrients your body needs to function at its best!
If you eat these foods, you will be doing your health a major favor if you take a big step away from them.
Instead, make SMART SWAPS to whole, nutrient-rich foods whenever possible:
It can be an adjustment for your taste buds to get used to non-ultra processed foods … but you will be absolutely AMAZED at the difference in how you feel.
Just some of the changes you might notice: more energy, fewer cravings, fewer aches & pains, better sleep, improved workout performance and concentration, and so much more!
