Top harmful foods that you NEED to avoid immediately:
1.) Yogurt - specifically Go-Gurt for kids. Beware of yogurt with added sugar. If yogurt tells you that they have probiotics in them, check to see if the yogurt has been pasteurized (more than likely it has). The pasteurization process ends up killing off most if not all of the probiotics (the good bacteria) in the yogurt.
2.) Wheat bread: Beware of breads that contain high fructose corn syrup (20x sweeter than sugar) which is a chemical that isn’t recognized by our brains. This high fructose corn syrup confuses your “Ghrelin” which the hormone that tells you when you’re hungry and disrupts your “Leptin” hormone which tells you when you’re full which causes you to eat more than you should.
**High Fructose Corn syrup: is 8 times more addictive than cocaine and heroin. Your body does not recognize high fructose corn syrup because it is processed. Since your body does not recognize high fructose corn syrup, once it is consumed, it is stored as fat.**
3.) Cereal Bars: Cereal bars are loaded with sugar and high fructose corn syrup. Beware of cereal bars where sugar is the first ingredient. Sugar has many different identities such as: Sugar, Brown Sugar, Fructose, Maltose, Dextrose, Anhydrous dextrose, cane crystals, cane sugar, corn sweetener, corn syrup, corn syrup solids, crystal dextrose, evaporated cane juice, fructose sweetener, fruit juice concentrates, high-fructose corn syrup, honey, liquid fructose, malt syrup, maple syrup, molasses, pancake syrup, raw sugar, sugar, syrup and white sugar fructose, and maltose.
