6 So called “Health Foods”


One of the modules I teach in college is Nutrition. In the teaching class we have many interesting discussions on the different food groups and we also do a dietary analysis on what we eat each day. When we start  analysing foods it becomes obvious  that many foods out there marketed as “healthy” are anything but healthy.

Here are 6 foods that fall into that category

  1. Organic Crackers

According to food researchers from the Food and Brand Lab at Cornell University, organic crackers deserve a place as a  top offender.  When we see the name “organic” we kind of assume the food would contain fewer calories and have less fat than the non-organic boxed crackers at your local grocery store.

Well that is not the case.  Processed foods are just that—processed and that means They means they usually contain a lot of sodium to make up the difference, and we usually end up eating twice as much because of that fact.

  1. Organic Cookies

These have all the right words that spell healthy and they may not have chemicals and artificial sugars  but they have natural sugars and these will add the pounds

  1. Diet Soda

This is a debate that has gone on for a while .Are diet soda any good  and are they better for you over regular sodas . the truth lies that neither are good for us. Diet sodas are full of artificial sweeteners which have the effect of making us want to drink more. They also contain aspartame which is a poison and over time can result in symptoms like those of Multiple sclerosis.

  1. Bottled Juice

These are marketed as green juices and health smoothies. Some of them can contain as much as 50 grams of sugar ..about 10 spoonfuls!

Drinking these drinks on a regular basis can lead to all sorts of problems like heart disease and type 2 diabetes.


  1. Granola

This is my favourite. So many people think that this is a healthy muesli but  let me assure you that Granola is full of sugar and fat.

Some people will argue that it contains nuts and seeds and also oats which give us fibre but the problem comes from the fact that the recommended amount is a quarter cup and most of us would eat an awful lot more.

  1. Lean Frozen Cuisine

This are easy to pop into the oven when you get home after a days work. The servings are small and so sometimes one is not enough .To preserve frozen meals they are packed with chemicals and artificial ingredients like sugar and MSG  [Monosodium glutamate]

Both of these 2 badies effect the hypothalamus,the message centre which tells the body it is full

Eat Stop Eat Review


Product Description:

The name of this product is pretty interesting… Eat Stop Eat. But, it describes the program perfectly. Eat Stop Eat is a guide on intermittent fasting. This method of weight loss has taken the fitness industry by storm and is one of the most effective ways of losing weight.

The popularity of the paleo diet has also caused a rise in the popularity of intermittent fasting. When combined, the weight loss is staggering. The method itself is unique because you are consuming the same amount of calories as you would on a normal day but the time frame you will eat it in is different.

Brad Pilon sums up the intermittent fasting strategy in 91 pages flat. You are told everything you need to know to perfect this method of weight loss. In fact, you could adopt it as your lifestyle and you’ll notice that you do not gain weight easily anymore.

The Good Points:

1) The guide is written in a simple, easy to follow style. You do not need to understand complex biology to know how intermittent fasting will work for you. You just need to do what Brad says. That’s easy to do. It’s also a fun read

2) The program is not created upon BS theory. There are currently many fitness products on the market with hyped up sales pages, muscular models in videos and snazzy graphics all designed to hook the naïve consumer in. The products themselves are untested theory that do not work.

Thankfully, Eat Stop Eat, is not one of them. The official website is not hyped up. It gels with Brad’s easy going style. The guide also makes several references to scientific studies so you know that this is not untested rubbish.

3) This product is good for both men and women. Unlike some diet methods that are really harsh and cavemen like, this way of eating will appeal to women. You have much more flexibility and the sheer effectiveness of the method lends a certain laxity to eat. You will actually be able to eat a muffin or cookie here and there without adding 20 pounds to your waist.
4) You will be taught when to recognize if your body is truly hungry. We live in a world where people eat when they are happy, sad, bored, angry, etc. They eat for every other reason and very rarely because they are hungry.
5) It’s an online download so you get immediate access to the product. No shipping to worry about.

The Bad Points:

1) You will have to put in effort. This style of eating requires you to change your habits a little. It will take about 2 weeks for your body to adjust but once you’ve done it, you will love intermittent fasting..

2) It’s an online product. You will need a computer and internet connection.

Should You Get It?

Two big thumbs up. This is an excellent product and probably the best guide on intermittent fasting out there.

The fact that you can eat whatever you want as long as you follow the method is truly mind blowing. Of course, you will have to eat in moderation but unlike other diets which are restrictive and don’t allow you to eat carbs, sugar, etc… you have a lot of flexibility with intermittent fasting.

You just need to do it right. In order to do it right, you need correct, easy to follow info. Eat Stop Eat…has your name all over it.

101 Toxic Food Ingredients Review


Product Description:

We live in a day and age where more and more people are obese, unhealthy and sickly. Most of these ills are the result of a poor diet that is high in processed food, junk food, additives, preservatives, genetically modified food, etc.

There has been more change in our diet over the last 50 years than over the past century. The reason for this is that big companies are all out to get the dollar and can’t give 2 hoots about the health of their consumers.

Studies have shown that the majority of food items sold in supermarkets contain toxic ingredients. This is highly disturbing and that’s putting it mildly.

Thankfully, bestselling author, Anthony Alayon, has exposed the dark side of the food industry and written a book on exactly what foods are toxic, what foods you should avoid like the plague and reveals the truth about all the most common foods we consume.

It’s definitely about time someone spoke the truth.


The Good Points:

1) This report is extremely detailed and nothing is swept under the carpet. It’s very refreshing to see a book that is so brutally honest it actually shocks and scares. We should be scared after seeing how much toxic stuff we are consuming daily. Being aware is half the battle won.

2) There are many testimonials on the official website that lend credibility to this report. There is also a 100% money back guarantee if you’re not satisfied. Since there is zero risk, this is definite worth trying out.

3) Not only are you told what to avoid, you’re also given alternatives and helpful suggestions regarding diet choices and decisions. So, it’s not just about highlighting the problem but you’re also taught how to overcome them. All you need to do is follow.
4) It’s an online download so you get immediate access to the product. No shipping to worry about.
5) The information is mind-blowing and this is a very unique report. The attention to detail is unparalleled and that makes this a guide that you can trust.


The Bad Points:

1) The info is so harsh that it can create phobias in people. Definitely the hard truth here. This may make some people just ignore everything and prefer to bury their head in the sand and act like it’s all hype.

2) This is only available online. You’ll need a computer and internet connection to download it

3) This is a highly informative product. You will have to spend time reading it, taking notes, etc. It’s not bedtime reading material. If you are willing to put in the effort and read it carefully, you will benefit from it.

Should You Get It?

Definitely. You can’t afford not to get it. It’s that important.

No amount of exercise, calorie counting, etc. will help if you are eating toxic foods. You can only know what these foods are if you get the guide. This crucial information is not easily available and is drowned out by false info that abounds in the media and online. This is intentional.

Learn the truth.

101 Super Foods Review

Product Description:

In the US, Australia and other countries, obesity is fast becoming an epidemic. Besides obesity, another problem that millions of people face is body aches and pains that seem to appear for no reason at all.

People just feel tired, stiff, painful, swollen and they have no idea why. They attribute it to getting old, pollution, genetics, bad luck and tons of other things. What most people do not know is that the cause to most of the inflammation they are suffering is caused by poor food choices.

This lack of knowledge is hurting them literally. In fact, the Time magazine has devoted an entire issue to covering inflammation which it terms as the “Secret Killer”… and it is. Inflammation is a precursor to a whole lot of other major problems such as cancer, asthma, Alzheimer’s, arthritis, tumors, allergies, heart disease and much more. This information is enough to scare most people.

Yet, it’s true.

Mike Kesterdal and Rick Kaselj have written a book on the foods that cause inflammation and more importantly, they have given you 101 superfoods to fight the inflammation and pain you may be experiencing.

These 2 guys are ordinary people just like us. They are not celebrities on talk shows. They do have the necessary credentials that are required to give information that is credible and useful. That’s what makes this product so believable. It’s not hyped up and the focus is on solving people’s problems not on making a buck.

The Good Points:

1) On the official website you are given 3 super foods you can consume to fight inflammation. Kiwis, green tea and pistachios. These are just 3 of the foods in the book and there are 101 such foods! You’re spoilt for choice. The foods are also delicious so you will not have to force yourself to eat stuff that you don’t want to.

2) The program is comprehensive. You are also taught about the different vitamins and minerals required for good health. A deficiency in these vitamins may cause health issues such as joint pain and diabetes. Prevention is better than cure. Eating the super foods will be highly beneficial down the road by keeping you healthy.

3) 100 per cent money back guarantee. Awesome! Whenever a product offers a full refund should you find it unsatisfactory, in most cases it’s a really good product and not some shoddy product created by fly-by-night operators. You can trust this program.

4) The author and his programs have been featured on several sites such as livestrong.com and the San Francisco Chronicle.

The Bad Points:

1) You will need to buy healthy foods to consume. Some people may say that it’s too expensive to eat healthy. This is not true since most of the foods can be obtained at much cheaper prices from farmers markets. Also, you will save yourself on thousands of dollars in health costs down the road.

2) The product is only available online and you will have to download it. That can be a problem to people who do not have an internet connection.
Should You Get It?

You should. This is one of those products that you should share with your friends and family. The information is important and will bring ease to many people’s suffering. Waking up daily to a body that aches and is pain is no fun and extremely demoralizing.

With just a few small changes in our eating habits and replacing bad foods for superfoods, we can be a picture of health and lead a pain free life. This product is a must-get. Period.
