Sugar

Added sugars are a form of a simple carbohydrate that for most intents and purposes is not a necessity for the human body. Some studies have indicated that our body was never originally designed to metabolize the levels of sugar that a common first world human ingests each day. Sugars will cause a secretion of insulin from the pancreas that will ultimately kick start fat cell storage and well that’s a nightmare on insulin peak. =)

Avoid: Candy, chocolate, BBQ sauce, ketchup, fruit juice, apple cider, sugary drinks, sweets, & soda.

Starch


Starchy carbohydrates can also cause the same hormonal dance resulting in the storage of unused energy resulting in stowing away of fat cells.

Avoid: Breads, pasta, French fries, baked potatoes, cookies, and cakes.

Sodium

High sodium intake can cause high blood pressure and is linked to many things including heart disease. Less serious side effects, is the retention of water-weight. Yes, your body will contain a higher level of water that can spook the scale into thinking you are heavier than you actually are.

Avoid: Smoked, cured, canned, or processed foods, chili, frozen dinners, and diet sodas.

Alcohol

Alcohol is about as bad as it gets when throwing a monkey wrench into your diet. First off your adding tremendous empty calories from the consumption alone, but you are also forcing your Liver to prioritize by processing the alcohol first before it can get back to one its main functions and that’s metabolism and the breakdown of fat cells into useable energy.

Avoid: Brown liquors, beer, and rum.

So before attending those Halloween and Fall parties make sure you know which table items to avoid cause it can be a long holiday season and you want to start it off right!
