THERE ARE MANY, BUT WHAT ARE THE
5 MAIN FOODS YOU SHOULD ALWAYS AVOID?
- WHEAT PRODUCTS
- EVERYTHING GMO- CORN IS NOW COMMON
- ALL SUGARS INCLUDING AGAVE and SUGAR ALCOHOLS- anything ending in ‘ose’ is a sugar. ALL CORN SYRUPS are sugar, not just
- ALL ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS & PRESERVATIVES
- HYDROGENATED OILS, including foods that contain partially hydrogenated oils.

As you check out various articles from many sources, you will notice that many of them claim to tell you the 5 foods you must avoid for losing fat, and avoiding disease including Alzheimer’s, Diabetes and more! You will also notice that those 5 foods are not always the same, but yet they all seem to be valid foods to avoid. Why is that?
After doing our own research and talking with our own doctors and health resources, we have discovered that eating- as much as possible- a totally chemical-free diet and not using a microwave can be very important. Why? We suggest you check out our page on microwaves. You will discover why this is the very best way to go for good health!
Let’s start with the first one we’re told to avoid- WHEAT. WHY, you ask, after all we’ve been told all our life to include many grains in our diet for the best health possible, so this just doesn’t make sense. You’re right! One or two hundred years ago this was true, but over time money-hungry corporations began to change things- and not to make us healthy, but to fatten their bottom line. This article on wheat is something everyone should see!!
From now on, get your flour products from Italy. You can order directly from the Jovial website or get them from Amazon. We love their cookies and will now make sure they are our source for pastas and crackers!
What about GMO’s? We’ve done several articles on this, but you may find this one to be the most interesting. Debunking the Mainstream Media’s Myths about GMO’s
All SUGAR PRODUCTS? Unless it’s in a Jovial product from Italy or a company here at home sweetened with Organic Cane Sugar, YES! Always avoid all processed sugars and syrups!
ALL Artificial Sweeteners & Preservatives? YES!! Artificial anything is NOT real food and the health industry calls them chemicals! You will no doubt find the information we provide in this article to most helpful- Splenda, Equal And Other Artificial Sweeteners. Stevia comes from a plant and unless changed with processing, is the best choice to have in your pocket or handbag when going out for coffee. You will do better to avoid Truvia since they put Erythritol in it, which makes it a chemical with side effects such as diarrhea, headache, and stomachache in lower amounts in some people. We like SweetLeaf and NuNaturals Stevia best- just the tender part of the plant in powder form.
HYDROGENATED OILS, including foods that contain partially hydrogenated oils? Yes, these too, are chemicals and mentioned in some of my articles– just remember Trans fats are strongly inflammatory in your entire body including damage to cell membranes throughout your body. Always avoid hydrogenated oils (trans fats) in processed foods and deep fried foods..
We believe if you avoid the five food groups above, you will do quite well and of course we suggest you follow the plan we’ve laid out on our EAT HEALTHY! page.
Below is a photo of 13 unhealthy snacks. You may be surprised to see Slim Fast® and Weight Watchers® products in the group.
Coach Josh explains it all in the informative article below…
The first thing that may strike you as strange in this photo is the drink mix. You may be wondering why this Slim Fast product is along with the other “bad snacks.” Well, if you look at the ingredients the very first ingredient in this product is sugar! In fact, this “weight loss drink” has 10g of sugar, just 2g of protein and is stuffed full of artificial sweeteners that can cause cravings, artificial flavors and very questionable ingredients if you are interested in losing belly fat.
The next thing I would like to point out is the chocolate chip soft cookies. Their first ingredient is enriched wheat flour, and the second ingredient is sugar, but this supposed “health product” also contains partially hydrogenated oils/ which research has shown all sorts of negative effects in the body, including increasing the risks for certain cancers.
Betty Crocker’s product is a hoot. Many parents across America are giving this product to their children thinking that because it has the word fruit in the name of the product it is healthy, but it’s not. This product contains 7g of sugar per roll, but even worse is that it contains partially hydrogenated oils, corn syrup and a lot of food dyes. You would be way better off providing fresh fruit to your child instead of one of these “belly fat bulgers.”
Hunt’s Sugar Free Gelatin may sound great because it is low in sugar, but it contains artificial sweeteners and hydrogenated oils (trans fats).
contain partially hydrogenated oil, and enriched flour which make them a very unhealthy product. Doritos potato chips contain MSG, which is definitely not at the top of my list of ingredients to get a slim belly.
Special K “candy bars” contain sugar and partially hydrogenated oil as their first two ingredients. And later on down the label, they throw in high fructose corn syrup as a kicker. Stay away from this bar for sure. What is ironic is that the candy bar has almost the same ingredient profile as the Special K protein meal bar.
The Atkins Advantage chocolate peanut butter bar has 6g of hydrogenated oils (trans fats), plus they pack 240 calories in this little bar that won’t satisfy your hunger for long.
Rolo chewy caramel candy contains both high fructose corn syrup and hydrogenated oils (trans fats).
contain a whopping 13g of fat and 20g of sugar per package.
Snicker’s Marathon Energy Bar contains high fructose corn syrup.
Cool Ranch Doritos are not cool because they have MSG and (trans fat.)
Each bag of peanut M&M’s contains 25g of sugar! Like most candies, these are not a good choice.
The Snickers candy bar contains partially hydrogenated soybean oil (trans fat) and 20g sugar.
