Foods That Make You Fat

2010 May 7

Lately, you can’t surf the web or turn on the television and look for information on weight loss and foods that make you fat without hearing about the latest health news breakthroughs. Anti-oxidants, phytonutrients, and superfoods fill the screens, their benefits touted with scientific research to back them up. As a result, it may surprise you to find that some of the foods that make you fat have actually been deemed healthy. We have been hearing for years that trans fats and high fructose corn syrup should be avoided,and they should however, you may be shocked to find that wheat products and canned or bottled fruit juice are not the “good-for-you” foods we have been led to believe.

Wheat products include most bagels, breads, cereals and pasta, just to name a few. They usually contain gluten. This is a unique type of protein found in barley, rye and wheat.  A significant percentage of people have some degree of intolerance for this type of protein. It has only been the last 80-100 years that wheat products have been a dietary staple. Before that time, our digestive system was used to a steady diet of a very limited amount of meats, vegetables, fruits and nuts. Some people who remove wheat from their diets for a few weeks lose weight faster and feel better than they have in years.

And canned juices, even if they state they are 100% real juice, are not really what they purport to be. Many of these juices have been processed, heated and manipulated so they no longer contain the nutrition that the real or original fruit does. Plus when you add the preservatives and so called “natural flavorings” which are really a code word for added MSG, then your healthy canned or bottled juice is really just a concoction that doesn’t do all that much for you besides add extra calories to your diet.
