As my interest in nutrition grows i've decided to do some reading from Ebooks, one particularly I read last night was called 'Weight loss nutrition secrets revealed'. Since it was PDF I couldn't copy and paste so I took some photos of interesting parts.
The book had some interesting view points namely that the whole calorie concept is poorly researched and a crap method that has a counter act effect.
Also one very important point it made that 'Skinny Bitch' also went into detail about is how BAD sugar is for you. In summary the books main point is that Lipids (fats) mixed with BAD Carbohydrates causes Fat Storage. So Sugar being at the top of the list of bad carbohydrates has made me think more.. It is a simple Carbohydrate that has been stripped of all it's nutrients. So basically it is there just to taste good but screw our bodies over. And Sugar is in literally EVERYTHING, well everything processed that is. So I'm thinking I really need to cut out processed foods, not just because of the sugar content but because I also can't be sure what ingredients are in there. I can't always research everything ingredients on the net before I eat it so perhaps I just don't eat it. For example there is a 'Sweet William' dairy free chocolate that advertises 'No added sugar' (as it is sweet enough) however this chocolate has an ingredient in it called 'MALTITOL' which I had never heard of.. So I researched it and the horrifying news is.
Anyhoo, enough of that of course there will be a few exceptions such as Sanitarium Veggie D'lights, Sanitarium soy milk, Sorbet and so on but not more other stuff! I'll be making it myself.. Just to be safe.
Well that is enough for tonight except I might add for dinner I had a sandwich with Sanitarium Veggie D'light
'Bacon Style Rashers", Avocado, Tomato, Lettuce with some Mushrooms and Champignons (button mushrooms).
