Beware of These “Healthy” Foods …

We are taught our whole like to “Eat Your Veggies” But what if the veggies we are eating are actually hurting us … not helping?

Corn was the biggest offender — people who ate it regularly gained an average of two pounds over four years.

Starchy vegetables have a high glycemic index, which can raise your body’s blood glucose.

Higher Sugars in your blood stream causes

When your blood glucose levels increase, your pancreas secrets insulin to bring down your blood sugar, he explains. This can result in a sharp drop in your blood glucose levels a few hours after eating, leaving you with stronger feelings of hunger more quickly than if you had eaten foods with a lower glycemic index.

Vegetables and Fruits that cause weight gain: 

  • Corn
  • Peas
  • Potatoes
  • Cabbage
  • Dried Fruits
  • Pineapple, Papaya, Mango
  • Juice

Fruits and vegetables that help with weight loss: 

  • Berries
  • Apples
  • Pears
  • Broccoli
  • Spinach
  • Cauliflower
  • Lettuce

Now I am not saying go for a Snickers instead of pineapple just focus on eating the good quality vegetables and fruits for the majority of your meals!
