I’m often asked how to eat healthy. I used to think I was eating healthy because the food packaging and marketing told me it was healthy. Previously I couldn’t lose weight and keep it off. Honestly, I never felt as good as I wanted or expected even after losing 100 pounds. Once I refined my diet an eliminated almost all packaged foods, my health started to improve.
The Three “Health Foods” That Are Really Junk Foods in Disguise
According to a recent survey, about a third of people in the U.S. are actively trying to avoid gluten.
A lot of experts think this is unnecessary… but the truth is that gluten, especially from modern wheat, can be problematic for a lot of people, as it is for my son and me.
Not surprisingly, the food manufacturers have brought all sorts of gluten-free foods to the market.
The problem with these foods is that they are usually just as bad as their gluten-containing counterparts, if not worse.
These foods were amplifying my leaky gut/Crohns symptoms, which I healed leaky gut with a specific diet.
These are highly processed foods that are very low in nutrients and often made with refined starches that lead to very rapid spikes in blood sugar.
So… choose foods that are naturally gluten-free, like plants and animals, NOT gluten-free processed foods.
Gluten-free junk food is still junk food.
Processed Organic Foods
Unfortunately, the word “organic” has become just like any other marketing buzzword.
Food manufacturers have found all sorts of ways to make the same junk, except with ingredients that happen to be organic.
In many cases, the difference between an ingredient and its organic counterpart is next to none.
Processed foods that happen to be labeled organic are not necessarily healthy. Always check the label to see what’s inside.
Low-Carb Junk Foods
Low Carb diets have been incredibly popular for many decades now, this is how I lost 100 pounds, and I have been on a keto/carnivore diet for a few years and have never felt better.
In the past 12 years, studies have confirmed that these diets are an effective way to lose weight and improve health, this is why Paleo & Keto is so popular.
However… food manufacturers have caught up on the trend and brought various low-carb “friendly” processed foods to the market.
This includes highly processed junk foods like most health bars. If you take a look at the ingredients list, you see that there is NO real food in there, just chemicals and highly refined ingredients.
These products can be consumed occasionally without compromising the metabolic adaptation that comes with low-carb eating. But they don’t really nourish your body… even though they’re technically low-carb, they’re still unhealthy.
Try These Foods Instead
HEKA Bars, sugar-free jerky, raw vegetables & guacamole. nuts & seeds. hard-boiled eggs. When in doubt eat a big filling fresh salad with lots of greens and colored vegetables with lean animal protein. Skip the croutons, and use quality dressing if possible.
