“Today, more than 95% of all chronic disease is caused by food choice, toxic food ingredients, nutritional deficiencies and lack of physical exercise.” ~ Mike Adams, the Health Ranger
Last week we discussed how our view of Nutrition on a 101 level (LINK) is all about the Do’s and a what exactly is a compliant meal.
This week we introduce….
CPMFITness 201 = The Don’ts (What to limit and What to do about it)
PART 1 = THE DON’TS
1st Offender = Seed Oils: Basically every restaurant cooks with them; Fast food joints, chain restaurants or fine dining establishments. They are found most processed foods such as tortilla chips, soups, salad dressings and fruit snacks.
*More examples of oils to…
(LIMIT); canola, safflower, sesame, sunflower, corn and cottonseed.
(AVOID); chia, corn, cottonseed, flax, grapeseed, hemp, palm kernel, peanut, rice bran, soybean.
2nd Offender = Dairy: A dairy product or milk product is food produced from the milk of mammals. Its found in cow’s milk, some cheeses, yogurts and protein powders.
There is good dairy and bad dairy. Our
Stop “General Rule of Thumb” starting out for a client is to begin to limit/omit dairy to find if dairy works for you and if the good outweighs the bad. Why? Dairy is guilty until proven innocent of providing you with a case of Lactose (form of sugar) and Casein (form of protein) Intolerance. Also dairy can be highly insulinogenic, more than most carbohydrate sources.
3rd Offender = Gluten/Grains: From the Latin gluten, “glue” is a protein composite found in wheat and related grains, including barely and rye.
What kinds of food(s) are gluten/grains? Breads, cereals, pasta, rice and even GLUTEN FREE (believe it or not:-) grains or pseudo-cereal.
Why are they unhealthy?
- Missing critical satiety factors (fiber, water, complete protein)
- They contain more than THREE TIMES the sugar and sodium needed with vitamins (A, B6, B12, C, D, E and K) and minerals (magnesium, iron, zinc) compared to fruits and veggies.
- Toxic anti-nutrients (problematic proteins)
PART 2 = WHAT TO DO… Stop-Drop-Swap
There is always a healthier alternative. Our goal is to create awareness and get you THINKING about how to switch ingredients to change your results and keep the loved foods around.
