BUT, 3 articles / TV programmes have caught my attention recently. Last night I was watching the programme Food Unwrapped. There was a section on there about kid’s food.
All these designer products, marketed to parent and less so to kids…
*No added sugar
*Natural sugars high in fibre
*1 of your 5 a day
In reality these foods are actually junk food full of sugar – cereals, cereal bars, dried fruit, juice.
Even real fruit…
Real fruit you ask????
Then on GMB yesterday Susanna and Ben were interviewing a dentist and a mum and her kids about their teeth…
One of the kids ate a lot of dried fruits etc.. the other didn’t
The kid that ate the dried fruit had…..
4 fillings and a root canal ….
….and the kid was only 5 years old!
Your thinking – what’s this got to do with me? I’m 40+ and my teeth are fine.
Yes, your teeth may well be fine and I’m sure your brush well.
But this made me think…
All this sugar in so-called healthy foods is causing a huge problem on hormones
This is the fat storage hormone
Anytime you have elevated insulin levels – even in the “normal zone”
WEIGHT LOSS IS IMPOSSIBLE
Or perhaps I should clarify that as fat loss, but you know what I mean
No amount of exercise is going to undo the effects of junk food on your insulin
I’ll repeat no amount of exercise is going to undo that
I’ll repeat it again just in case you missed it, no amount of exercise is going to undo that
So you get my point here, right?
You have to cut all the crap out – juice, dried fruit, cereal bars, flap jacks, granola bars, yoghurts, even fruit…..
I’ll get strung up by the dieticians on this one but TOO MUCH fruit may be causing you a problem and stopping you getting in shape.
