Here is a list of foods (processed or not), ingredients, and chemical compounds that nutritionists refuse to put on their plates.
A large iced coffee with skim milk and two Splenda, please? Think twice. There is not enough data to indicate that artificial sweeteners are really safe, so I prefer to avoid them and allow myself to take real sugar from time to time with full knowledge of the facts, there is a lot of research to prove that drinking diet drinks could make you gain weight, which can increase your risk of diabetes and heart disease.
Low Fat Peanut Butter
Do you think your body will thank you for taking the low-fat jar? Fault! Better to opt for the fatter. Regular, low-fat peanut butter has roughly the same number of calories, but the “light” version contains more added sugars and artificial sweeteners to enhance the taste. The fat in peanut butter is good for our body, so better stick to the good old fat peanut butter.
The ads are catchy and remind us of the fond memories of our childhood snacks, but most of these products do not keep their promise in terms of nutritional value. It’s sort of like eating dessert for lunch. Almost half of the calories come from added sugars, so these yogurts are a poor health choice. Better opt for a plain yogurt in which you will put fruit or some healthy food.
Fast food burgers
The healthiest part of these meals that your children beg you to buy them after returning from training? No doubt the plastic toy that comes with it. While making your own burgers on the barbecue at home can be a good choice, those sold in fast food chains are nutritionally suspected. A single meatball can be taken from a dozen different cows raised in feedlots. These animals are stuffed with hormones, have very high levels of inflammation, and are horribly malnourished, he continues. You then find a white bread very rich in starch and which, depending on the garnish you choose, may contain poor quality bacon and cheese in highly processed plastic.
Although oysters have a reputation for being an aphrodisiac and can really make you happy when you accompany them with a good glass of fresh white wine on a sunny day, nutritionist Jennifer Bowers fears the effects of this gooey mollusk on your digestive system. There are a lot of foodborne illnesses associated with undercooked seafood, she says – hepatitis A and norovirus, especially. Oysters sometimes carry vibrio vulnificus and vibrio parahaemolyticus, she explains. That being said, I find that oysters have a horrible taste (that’s my opinion!), So for me, the risk is not worth the candle. If you eat it, prefer cooked oysters over raw oysters to reduce the risk of getting sick.
