"If it seems too good to be true, it probably is..." -Author Unknown
TGIF!!! I am sooo ready for the weekend!! This week was rough and I am looking forward to new beginnings in the new week and a Word at church this weekend! I have a nice Saturday night planned with Muffin [My Favorite Negro] baking some healthy holiday goodies that I will be posting Monday!
Healthy Girl Speaks!
Q: What are some foods that I should avoid that are marketed as good for me? - Tonika [#operationSpanxFree]
A: First of all love the operation name! haha!
The #1 type of food or foods I would stay away from is anything labeled "diet". Let's use diet sodas as an example.You'd think that they would be better for you, but in reality, those products are 10 times worse than normal sodas [food] would be.
Whenever you get ready to eat, your body prepares itself to receive calories.
Calories that are then converted into energy for cellular metabolism (currently study for a biology exam).
Anywho, when you drink a diet soda [diet products], your body expects to take in calories, but it doesn't.
Long story short this triggers your body to go into "starvation mode" which makes your body hold onto fat.
In addition to that, the products they use in diet sodas [products] are not compounds that are naturally occurring. Specifically when you're drinking diet soda, pardon my language, you're basically ingesting a chemical s**t storm.
Hope this helps!
