Healthiest YOU Series – PART TWO: Inflammatory Foods Continued

This week we’re discussing Processed Foods, Refined Carbohydrates and Fast Foods

Processed Food and Refined Carbohydrates

Examples are breads, pasta, crackers, bagels, muffins, cookies, pies, cakes, even foods that are marketed as health food like cereal.  These processed foods are stripped of their nutrients and are often high in added sugar and unhealthy oils or fats. They are also low in fiber, healthy fats and protein which is what actually leads to satiety when eaten. This is why it’s easy to overeat on these so called foods and feel tired or even experience joint pain after consuming them. This is the results of their inflammatory effect.

Fast Food

The majority of fast food is highly processed, especially the fried food.  Even the “not so bad for you” fast food joints are preparing their food with inflammatory vegetable oils like corn, soybean, cottonseed, peanut, safflower, and canola oil.  So, it may not necessarily be the food itself causing inflammation, but more so the oil used to prepare the food.  To stay healthy, stay away for all fast food.
