TRANS Fats…Food Labels Lie
My wife and I have been busy celebrating our 7th wedding anniversary, but I wanted to quickly get this important article to you from my main man Nicky P.
Make sure you avoid this “hidden” food ingredient below at all costs.
Take it away Nick!
#1 Food Killing You AND Making You Fat…
by Nick Pineault, Food Investigator and Nutrition Nerd
Everyone believes reading labels is a good way to determine if a food is healthy or not – but that’s only partially true.
To make more money from uneducated consumers, most food manufacturers use dirty little tricks to hide dangerous and fattening ingredients in common foods that you eat everyday.
And worst of all, these fake ingredients are specifically designed to make you ADDICTED to their stuff.
One of many examples is known as “trans fats”.
If you don’t know by now, this is one of the most dangerous and TOXIC foods in existence.
Eating just a tiny amount of this nasty ingredient can increase your risk of heart disease and promote accumulation of visceral fat – a dangerous kind of belly fat that’s almost impossible to get rid of.
Well, believe it or not, most of the foods that show “Zero Trans Fats” on the label actually contain a TON of it.
Thanks to the FDA, manufacturers are allowed to label ANY food — even so-called “healthy” ones, with less than 0.5g of trans fat per serving as “Trans Fat-Free.”
Almost every manufacturer lowers their portion sizes on the labels to hide their claims on their products while filling them with this dangerous and fattening ingredient.
Here’s a powerful, eye-opening example.
When you eat just ONE handful of “Zero Trans Fat” crackers you poison your body will a couple grams of toxic, fat-storing trans fats – WITHOUT even being aware of it.
But wait. It gets even worse.
According to a shocking study by the University of Florida at Gainesville, your vegetable oil can contain up to 4.6% “hidden” trans fat that’s not on the label.
Kind of scary, I know.
So beware of these food manipulation tricks!
For example, there is also ONE common carbohydrate that wreaks havoc on your fat-storing hormones in a MAJOR way.
It has even been shown to hamper memory, slow brain activity, AND increase your risk of brain inflammation and Alzheimer’s.
Make sure you avoid, or at the very least, control your intake of THIS type of carb at all costs:
