Really though even over doing the fruits and sugary veggies like carrots and beets is something you need to keep track of. I love melons since they are primarily water and my other fruit favs. would have to be apples, pears and oranges. Though out of everything having a nice slice of tomato with some sea salt and black pepper yummy.
Really though look at the labels of all the processed foods in the grocery store the next time you shop and you will see the highest levels are generally glucose/fructose or liquid inverted sugar or HFCS also known as high fructose corn syrup which is sugar and of course sodium aka: Salt. So in actuality what are you eating when your grabbing the processed food from the freezer or the shelf processed meat products/refined grain products/liquid sugars/iodized salt and a whole bunch of chemicals for most of them you cannot even read have we lost the saying when you cannot read a ingredients label do not buy it yes I mean the one that is in English.
Seriously people if we were all to reduce the amount of iodized table salt and refined sugars we consume we would be a much healthier and less obese public. Truly we are continually seeing a rise in obesity worldwide but what else are we seeing a increase of worldwide "FAST FOOD RESTAURANTS". Yes and what is apparent with fast food sugary pop/juice and salty/fatty food.
Really if a lot of these processed foods we crave did not have all the sugars and salt in them we would not desire them because they simply would not taste all that great. The salt and sugars are put there to disguise the actual taste of the product and the chemicals that are being used to simulate flavors. Really do you think that animal entrails, and fat taste good on there own ever looked at how much sodium is pumped into a wiener's, bologna or a cheap brand chicken nugget ?.
Look at some people in society they are so hooked on sugar and salt they add it to stuff that is already naturally sweet or salty or even the more bizarre putting salt on sweet stuff like an apple for instance or the common one done when you were a kid with sugar and cinnamon as dipping for fruit.
The worst aspect of all this is that parents are feeding there kids an over abundance of sugars and salts all the time look at sour candies for instance, pop tarts, pop, fast food, processed dinners, canned foods, you name it they are all over loaded with salt and sugars.
Look back in the years why do you think your dad or mom lived until they was old and grey well it was called home cooking, no processed crap, low salt, low sugar, and tons of fruits and veggies.
Because back when your parents were growing up housewives/dads actually took the time to prepare something and knew exactly what was going in it.
Today is the age of convience and well from what I can see an increase of people dying from obesity, heart disease,stroke, high blood pressure and side effects of that illness. As well as Cancer
it has actually been found that cancer cells live off this refined processed crap mostly the sugar but it really makes you think about the increase in cancer, heart disease, stroke, and obesity correlates quite well with the increase of fast food joints and processed foods.
So too finish this blog reduce your refined sugars and salts choose healthy alternatives as listed hear
and live a long and healthier life illness free or at least not as much. Consider watching this short YouTube video which is closed captioned for the hearing impaired and see the increase's for yourself just over the last few decades. This news story depicts truly what has happened to our planet over the last few decades.
God Bless and Best Wishes.
