The 3 White Poisons that you should stop using immediately!

The key to good health lies in eating less, exercising more, and more importantly in good nutrition. Not only does this involve incorporating healthy foods in the diet, but also in eliminating a few harmful ones too.

Keeping that in mind, begin by eliminating these 3 white poisons from your diet:

Sugar contains no essential nutrients and is one of the worst ingredient in your diet. It is high in calories and is the leading cause of obesity and type 2 diabetes. High fructose level in sugar can affect your liver. Not just that, sugar immobilizes the immune system, making one prone to illness and disease.

Stay away from:
Processed items high in sugar like soft drinks, mocktails & cocktails, ketchups, biscuits, ice-cream, chocolates, desserts.

Look for:
Check for hidden sugar sources on the food label. Sugar may be mentioned on the labels by different names like malt sugar, invert sugar, honey, jaggery or terms ending with ‘ose’ (maltose, dextrose, glucose, sucrose, and fructose), or corn syrup and high fructose corn syrup.

Salt is added to food for enhancing taste. However, excess salt is associated with numerous health hazards. Not only does it contribute to water retention and bloating, it also causes imbalance in the blood pressure. Salty dishes contribute to impairment of kidney function, resulting in less water and toxins to be expelled from the body. Excessive intake of salt can also affect your bones thus causing bone thinning.

Stay away from:
High sodium foods like ready to eat foods, papads, pickles, sauces, chips, salted biscuits, cheese and salted butter.

Look for:
Read the food labels to catch sodium in form of preservatives like sodium benzoate, monosodium glutamate, baking powder and baking soda.

White flour is highly refined and acts more or less like sugar in the body. It is digested almost immediately and contributes to sugar spikes in the body. Some of the health risks associated with white flour:

  • Obesity
  • Constipation
  • Type 2 Diabetes

The refining process of white flour eradicates all of its nutrients, so it does not offer any additional nutritional benefits. Moreover, white flour is also bleached using highly toxic chlorine bleach which creates toxic chemicals that destroy the insulin producing cells of the pancreas.

Stay away from:
Foods made with high proportion of refined flour like bread, pasta, pizzas and puffs.

Look for:
To make sure a food is made with whole grains, look on the food label for words like "whole grain".

Eliminating these 3 ‘poisons’ from your diet may seem particularly hard in the beginning. But believe it or not, once you actually go about doing it, you will never look back or regret your decision.
