Deadly foods

Is it possible that you’re killing yourself with your fork? I mean that figuratively, not literally of course!

On a recent visit to Chicago, I was totally disgusted by the food-like products (I’m not even sure that I would classify them as food) that were offered at the hotel’s FREE continental breakfast. They did have a bowl of wax coated, not-so-fresh apples. But alongside that was a large selection of pre-packaged food-like pastries, including a well-known brand cinnamon horn.

In reading the label, I discovered that this “delicacy” had 240 calories, including 110 fat calories, 12 gm of total fat, 32 gm of carbs, and a slew of preservatives and other un-pronounceable ingredients. And, of course, cinnamon to make it taste good.

According to Dr. Joel Fuhrman, a practicing MD, and author of the New York Times best seller Eat to Live, most people in America are “eating themselves into a premature grave” by consuming the Standard American Diet (SAD), which includes foods like this cinnamon pastry. He further states that more than 85% of the SAD consists of foods from low-nutrient, high-calorie processed foods, animal products, dairy products and sweets, which contribute to excessive weight, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and other chronic diseases.

If you’re looking to increase your health span (not just your life span), and to avoid a premature grave, it might be time to forego the Standard American Diet and start eating healthier!
