Processed Foods, and Why You Should Be Cautious

Foods that we eat should consist of naturally occurring fats, fibers, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and phytonutrients. All of these items are essential in keeping metabolism revving at its highest possible speed. Foods that consist of these items are healthy.

Unfortunately, the majority of Americans are hooked on unhealthy, chemically altered, and processed foods. 

Most processed foods contain genetically altered pro-inflammatory macronutrients, highly processed unhealthy fats, too much salt and sugar, unhealthy food additives, pesticides, and hormones. Each of these additives saps your body’s essential nutrients, but they do so especially when consumed together.

A diet rich in processed food doesn’t only lead to more obese children and adults, it also ensures that large numbers of the overweight population will also be deficient in life’s basic nutrients1.
