Foods That Risk Obesity
Obesity is often caused by overeating, but did you know that it is also the result of not eating the right kinds of foods. There are many foods that will cause you to gain weight even if you don’t overeat. Here are some foods that you should eliminate from your diet to help you get control of your weight and lose weight if necessary.
The reason you crave junk foods is simply because your body is so depleted of nutrients that it needs energy fast, and junk foods such as sugar, chocolate, chips and other unhealthy snacks or desserts will give your body that immediate rush of energy and satisfaction that it needs.
But this energy wears off very quickly and as soon as it does, you are left craving for more. Thus it ends in a vicious cycle and ultimately causes you to gain weight.
Fast foods might as well be put into the same category as junk foods, as they are high in unhealthy fats, lots of empty calories and are heavily processed. And like most junk foods they will give you an immediate boost of energy, only to have you feeling sluggish and miserable after.
Processed foods are foods that you can buy in neat packages, boxes, packets, cans and bottles. But all of these foods contain preservatives and other food additives that are foreign to the body. Anything that is foreign to the body will become toxic in your body. Your body then has to neutralize those toxins so that they can be eliminated from the body. If your body is unable to neutralize and eliminate them, then they get wrapped up in fat cells to be stored away from the organs.
The only foods that will help you to neutralize these toxins are living foods such as fruits, vegetables, herbs and nuts and seeds. You should eat these foods raw whenever possible for the most benefit.
Animal proteins such as meat, dairy and eggs will also cause you to gain excess weight. Even though these foods contain lots of nutrients, they also contain lots of unhealthy saturated fats and excess proteins which your body is unable to absorb or get rid of in a timely manner. Thus these foods become toxic in the body as well as they cannot be absorbed and neither can the leave the body without being neutralized first.
By eliminating or at least reducing the above foods you can also reduce your risks of obesity or even being overweight. But not only that, it can also help you to lose weight.
