3 foods you should avoid

I have a friend who does MLM in this brand called “Young Living”. MLM typically has a stigma of trying to “con” people but I think some of the brands do have some good to them. This one and NuSkin actually do work. I purchased my Young Living stuff from Amazon so it’s not like I was psychoed by them or anything.

Anyway, back to my initial point of this post. Young Living believes there are 3 foods you should avoid, and it actually does make a lot of sense cos I personally do not feel there’s any good from the 3 except for coffee which is a perk me up in the mornings.

So, here are the 3 foods:

1.       Dairy
2.       Coffee
3.       Sugar

The thing with dairy is that it is mucous forming, is acidic for the body and it constantly causes your body to draw alkalinity from the bones messing up your mineral sources especially calcium so ironically it’s doing the opposite of what most think it is. Where the most milk is consumed, the osteoporosis incidence is highest. This has to do with the acidic nature of milk and also over consumption of calcium that interferes with the proper functions of osteoclast and osteoblasts (special cells that bring and carry away calcium to/from the bone)

Coffee is a narcotic beverage. The caffeine in coffee belongs to the same alkaloid group as morphine, cocaine, and strychnine. The caffeine can combine with your stomach acid (hydrochloric) to form a potent toxin called Caffeine Hydrochloride. As this toxin absorbs into your portal circulation and hits your liver, bile is released in attempt to flush it from your system. This is why people feel an increase in “bowel regularity” when they drink coffee.

Decaffeinated coffee is no better for you than regular coffee. They both contain a large concentration of Trichloroethylene, a potent carcinogen primarily used as a degreasing agent in the metal industry and as a solvent in the dry cleaning industry. Deadly pesticides are regularly used on coffee plants in Columbia.

But the arguments surrounding coffee are enormous. There are numerous studies claiming that coffee is good for you. So with respect to this one, I’d rather adopt a “everything in moderation” approach as opposed to cutting it out completely.

Limiting sugar in your diet is a well-known key to longevity, because of all the molecules capable of inflicting damage in your body, sugar molecules are probably the most damaging of all. Fructose in particular is an extremely potent pro-inflammatory agent that creates AGEs and speeds up the aging process. It also promotes the kind of dangerous growth of fat cells around your vital organs that are the hallmark of diabetes and heart disease. In one study on fructose, 16 volunteers on a controlled diet including high levels of fructose produced new fat cells around their heart, liver and other digestive organs in just 10 weeks! How scary is that??

Phew, that was a mouthful but I guess it’s better to avoid sugar most of all, there’s really NOTHING good about it, be it brown or white.

Have a good short week all, xoxo.
