Happy New Year!!!
Yes I know I’m early but I want in on your resolutions!
1. Drink water – plain filtered water
2. Walking –
3. Read the Label and eat with intention –
yes again it’s work but you are worth it. I use the if I can pronounce it and accurately state it’s food qualities don’t eat it rule. Removing a few key ingredients from your diet can make a world of difference.
According to Dr. Mehmet Oz, Cardiac Surgeon and host of “The Dr. Oz Show,” there are 5 ingredients to avoid in order to consume a healthy diet. ”It’s called the rule of fives,” he says. “When you look on the back of a food label, they have to list the ingredients from the most common to the least common. You want to actually make sure these five ingredients are not in the top five on the food label.” Dr. Oz call this his “rule of fives.” You must read the labels of the foods you eat. If any of the first five ingredients listed is one of the following, don’t eat it.
High fructose corn syrup
“We most commonly get this in soft drinks,” Dr. Oz says. “It’s an inexpensive sugar, which means we’re getting a lot of it in our diet.”
Dr. Oz says when you eat sweets, your brain receives schizophrenic messages. “It says: ‘I got calories, but I didn’t get any nutrients,’” he says. Your body will keep craving food until it gets those nutrients.
Also watch out for products made with “enriched” flour, like white bread. “Why would they take bread and have to enrich it? Because they take all the important vitamins out of it, and they sprinkle just a little bit back in there,” Dr. Oz says.
Also known as hydrogenated fat, these are fats that were once in liquid form but have hydrogen added to make them solid at room temperature. “It extends the shelf life of the product,” Dr. Oz says. “But it shortens the human life.”
These fats come from four-legged animals like pigs and cows.
Small changes with big results.
