Dr. Frank Lipman, a top health coach, says there are some foods we need to stop eating as they pose more danger to us than sound health.
The health coach, who gives health advice to celebrities such as Gwyneth Paltrow and Maggie Gyllenhaal has listed these foods below as unhealthy.
Sugar: Scientist have continually warned us on the excessive intake of sugar, and it’s outcome. The food and Drug Administration, has said that people should cap consumption at 50 grams of sugar a day, which is about four tablespoons of sugar.
Processed foods: Most processed foods, are filled with empty calories. This simply means that we get close to no nutritional value for the consumption. Examples of such foods are : meats, sweets, bread, soda and lots more. Processed food such as red meats, like bacon have also been associated with cancer.
Factory farm meat and fish: This tends to be a problem as most of the livestock are injected with antibiotics and fed with corn for fast growth, the fish is also injected with antifungal and hormones, because of the way they are farmed. The rampant use of these antibiotics in livestock production, is contributing to the emergency of antibiotic-resistant bacteria, per the centers for disease control.
Juicing and juice: while eating fruits and lots of vegetables is good for the health, juicing can remove a lot of the fibre that is one of the benefits of eating plants.
Granola and health bars: This is actually pure junk as it contains so much sugar as additive and it is deceptively unhealthy. While granola may have lots of fibre and Iron, all of the sugar, oils and chocolates that come in these bars are not.
