Learn which three foods you must avoid
if you want to lose weightThe worst diet devastators are sugar, high-fructose corn syrup, and white flour, and they should be avoided at all costs if you want to lose weight successfully.
- Sugar. Sugar can destroy your health. It is creating an obesity epidemic in our nation. And it’s at the root of numerous other debilitating health conditions. Sugar comes in many forms. I recommend you read all labels to make sure you and your loved ones are sugar free! You will be surprised at how much you consume! Watch for my upcoming "Martha's Minute" on the 49 reasons you should avoid sugar.
Many people with digestive issues, allergies, fatigue, ADD, autism, neurological disorders, and more are turning toward a gluten free diet with successful relief. Many times one may not even know they are reacting to gluten because there may be no discomfort, bloating, gas or constipation. If you are suffering from health issues, eating Gluten Free is not something you do for a couple of weeks and then go back to your old habits. Gluten can stay in the body for approximately 6-8 weeks and is cumulative. Even if you only have a bite or two here and there, it all adds up! It is very important for you to take ownership of your diet - phone calls, reading, attending events will all assist you in learning about a whole new lifestyle.
NOTE: I am not suggesting everyone has to go on a gluten free diet forever: Some people without health issues avoid gluten for 6-8 weeks and then find they are able to tolerate it again in moderation. Some people do it as sort of a cleanse to give there body a break for awhile and get energized and notice their digestive complaints disappearing. Depending on your situation, you will need to decide what type of diet modifications are best for you. Most people I have worked with seem to feel better when avoiding wheat - and many of them lose weight!
