Replace Bad Carbs! – Think Nutritional Balance, Not Taste-buds
​One thing we all have in common is our love for tasty food.
Most of us are fortunate enough to eat what we like, when we like, and how we like. It’s easy to grow accustomed to eating only what we like as opposed to what maintains chemically-complexed body balance! The problem with the fixation of satisfying what our appetite desires instead of what the body needs is how quickly we spiral into making unhealthy diet choices, ultimately leading to an unhealthy lifestyle. It is imperative to prevent this by thinking about the science behind food consumption
Avoid Empty Calorie Foods
Empty calorie foods are filled with added sugars or insoluble fats. Common examples are :
  • Sausages, bacon, ribs and hot dogs (contain solid fat)
  • Ice cream (contains added sugars and solid fat)
  • Pizza (contains solid fat)
  • Cakes, pastries, cookies and donuts (contain solid fat and added sugars)
  • Sodas, fruit juices, sports and energy drinks (contain added sugars)
To avoid eating these foods for pleasure, think about what a nutritionist once told me,  “Be sure to include a minimum of three things from the food pyramid in every meal you eat.” That advice stuck with me and led me to view food differently
