Good or Bad???

Did you read this title and think, “Oh good. She’s gonna list foods that are good or bad for weightloss.” Well it’s not that simple friends and most foods cannot be classified as heros or villians. There are, however, some widely accepted truths regarding nutrition. Whole foods like fruits and veggies are nutrient dense and fiberous offering numerous benefits while refined foods are missing many nutrients and highly beneficial fiber. You know, of course, that broccoli is better for you than cake right? What about potatoes and rice though? These often scrutinized startches have gotten a bad rap as “fattening” for far too long because of their effect on blood sugar. It is a mistaken belief that elevated blood sugar is the sole cause of fat acculation. Persistently high insulin levels leading to insulin resistance is the cause of fat accumulation in the body. ALL foods and the mechanics of eating increase insulin levels, albeit temporarily, dependant upon the health of your gastrointestinal tract. Your body is a fantastic and complex combination of systems that are all dependant upon quality nutrition. Do your own research OR get direction from a knowledgable source and stop looking for quick fixes like good or bad food lists!
