Maintaining a healthy diet ain’t always easy and is often easier said than done. Here is a list of a few things not to eat. Avoid them and replace them with healthier options.
Your body is an engine and feeding it with breakfast fuel from fast food joints is a mistake. Fat, sugar, salt and chemicals doesn’t make it ready for an active day. The same counts for morning breakfast drinks. Maybe they contain protein but think about the chemicals, sugar and other unhealthy sugar substitutes. Take an extra 10 minutes each morning to cook up some wholesome food.
Food in Tins
Food courts often serve hot food tins loaded with MSG.
MSG (monosodium glutamate) is a food additive used as a flavour enhancer. It basically makes cheap quality meat taste better. One of the side effects of MSG is that it leads to weight gain, liver and brain damage. Apparently restaurants and cafes have no legal requirements to declare the presence of MSG in food so it’s pretty hard to find out what you’re eating.
MSG is an excitotoxin in the brain, meaning that it overstimulates the brain causing the production of excessive amounts of dopamine. This creates a drum-like rush that provides a brief sensation of wellbeing. It’s highly addictive, causing its consumers to keep coming back for more and end up overeating, meanwhile destroying brain cells.
Late Night Crap
It is spring and we’re probably all having a few more drinks than normal. Enjoy your drinks in moderation but don’t finish the night with large fizzy drinks combined with fast food like burgers, kebabs etc. Also stay away from consuming other high in sugar snacks. If you have been drinking a little too much, tough it out and deal with it in a healthy way.
