What are the 3 worst types of foods?

1. SUGAR

Refined sugar increases glucose levels in the blood and may cause diabetes and heart disease. Americans consume on average 30 teaspoons of sugar per day. Sugar + refined carbs= increased triglycerides = heart disease.

2. ANIMAL & TRANS FATS

Animal fat increases the risk of heart disease. Fat from cheese, meats, and eggs is highly saturated and acidic, and often creates inflammation. Of these fats, eggs are the highest in cholesterol. If you are eating meat, fish, and eggs, it is best not to eat these foods more than a few times per week, even less is better.

Trans fats are liquid oils heated up and bombarded with hydrogen. They are solid at room temperature and found in processed and fried foods, such as pizza, cakes, French fries, sauces, and so on. Trans fats increase bad cholesterol and LDL and lower HDL, or good cholesterol. Trans fats increase Omega 6. In high amounts, this will lead to increased inflammation, which increases the chances of heart disease. Instead, we need more Omega 3 from nuts and seeds, which will reduce inflammation.

3. SALT

Salt increases blood pressure and heart disease. It is best not to consume more than 1500-2000 mg. per day.
