These 2 common food groups, which many people wrongly believe to be “healthy”, may actually be making you fat.
The findings by Mike Geary, a Certified Nutrition Specialist and author of the very successful The Truth About Abs ebook, may shock you.
Firstly, he found that almost everyone has an intolerance to the gluten found in wheat and other grains.
The human digestive system was never meant to consume the large amounts of wheat that we are used to eating today. Wheat was only introduced to the human diet in huge amounts only in the last 80-100 years or so.
Before, our human ancestors survived on a “hunter-gatherer” diet of meats, fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds for the last hundreds of thousands of years.
Examples of these “guilty” foods will be things like bread, cereals, bagels, muffins, rice and pasta. Yes, even the “whole wheat” versions.
From his experience, his clients who heeded his advice and avoided wheat started to lose weight much faster. Not only that, problems with headaches and indigestion also disappeared.
Secondly, the other “culprit” that should be avoided when you’re trying to lose weight is… fruit juice!
But aren’t fruits healthy?
Yes, fruit is excellent when you eat it in its natural form, not when you separate the juice from the rest of it.
Fruit juice is high in sugar and calories and the fibre left behind is usually the most beneficial component of the fruit.
When you only drink the juice of fruit, you don’t get the appetite suppressing effects of fibre and may end up craving more carbohydrates.
Not only that, the fibre also controls and slows down blood sugar levels in your body.
So give it a try – try avoiding wheat and fruit juice in your diet and see for yourself if you lose weight faster. You should!
