Our Top10 Worst Foods

Top 10 Worst Food Lists all have one thing in common ~ they contain ALL processed foods; so in actuality, the top 10 are not real foods...they are the worst kind of products around. 

We are reposting our Top Worst list for you today (not in any specific order):

Sugar, Refined Sugar a.k.a. Sucrose & High Fructose Corn Syrup (possibly soon to be known as Corn Sugar.) High-fructose corn syrup is cheaper and sweeter than sugar and is now the favorite sweetener among food and beverage companies.

Soft-Drinks are the biggest problem with the American diet. Non-diet soft drinks are loaded with sugar and diet soft-drinks are loaded with the chemical Aspartame. Both also contain artificial colors, flavors, many contain caffeine.  Soft drinks contain phosphoric acid and a high phosphate diet has been associated with bone breakdown and an increased risk of osteoporosis. The average 10 oz. soda has 10 to 12 teaspoons of refined sugar, it is high in calories with no real nutritional value.

Hydrogenated or Trans-Fatty Acids are man-made and the worst kind of fat. They are actually more of a plastic than a 'fat'.  Do not eat any product that lists the following as an ingredient: shortening, partially hydrogenated vegetable oil or hydrogenated vegetable oil. 

Olestra another man-made ingredient, a fat substitute, is used to make 'non-fat' potato chips and other snack 'foods'. Olestra binds to fat soluble vitamins A, E, D and K and carotenoids and eliminates them from our body.  If you are eating 'foods' made with this product, chances are you are not eating very many vitamins in the first place, so eating Olestra will deplete the limited amount of vitamins you have stored in your body. It is a lose-lose situation.  The awful thing about Olestra is most people who are eating it have no idea what it is!

Nitrates are a chemical substance that can convert to nitrites, which is a powerful cancer-causing chemical in our bodies. If you eat nitrates pair it with a glass of orange juice as vitamin C is known to inhibit the conversion of nitrosamines in our stomach.

Factory Farmed Saturated Animal Fats are found in fatty meats (beef, pork and chicken skin), also found in full fat dairy (cheese, milk and cream.) Decreasing America's intake of saturated animal fat is the primary reason why Johns Hopkins, supported by 28 other public health schools, launched the Meatless Mondays campaign, trying to get Americans to cut meat out of their diet at least one day of the week.  Factory farmed meats are not only contaminated themselves, they contaminate our environment, so try to stick with significantly healthier humanely raised and organic meats.

Fermented Cheese may disturb digestion, can create or exacerbate infection, fever, headaches, nausea, cold sensitivity and bad stools. The most popular are: Camembert, Roquefort, Parmesan, Blue Cheese, aged Goat Cheese and Brie.

Processed Cheeses a.k.a. Cheez whiz, Velveeta, Easy Cheese.  This orangey-yellow, shiny, gooey, slimy stuff is so far from anything natural, it's disgusting. Imagine melting a plastic water bottle in the microwave then pouring that over a dish of french fries for dinner!

Doughnuts. Yes, this is not 'real' food. High in trans fats, made of refined flour and refined sugar, deep-fried in refined oil. They are nice to bite into, give you a quick high followed by a crash and burn, leaving you with an empty feeling.

The girl in this informative video does a very good job of explaining why her Top 10 Worst Foods are so unhealthy. She dishes out some good advice that pertains to our list as well. Please listen to what she has to share.
