Unhealthy Foods recommended by Dr. OZ
Sometimes I take it for granted that we are light years ahead of shows like Dr. Oz in regards to cutting edge nutrition advice and exercise knowledge.
I rarely get a chance to watch a lot of television, but the other day Karen just happened to turn on an episode and O-M-G…
I couldn’t believe the advice being dished out from an author of a brand new diet book.
And Dr. Oz wrote the forward, so he obviously “endorsed” the recommendations from inside this book.
I’m not trying to personally attack or bash Dr. Oz. I’m sure he gives some solid health advice on his show.
But I sat on my couch and watched this author recommend FOUR fat-storing unhealthy foods in a row, while Dr. Oz stood by and supported EVERY one of them.
1: Liquid amino acids made from soy beans
Almost all soy consumption in our culture comes from “raw soy,” not fermented.
Raw soy is known to be high in toxins that can raise bad estrogen, stop your body from absorbing certain vitamins and minerals, and interfere with thyroid function.
Also, raw soy goes through high-heat processing methods that can destroy the bioavailability of the protein and adds higher risk of things like heavy metals. This also forces most manufacturers to add “fattening” ingredients to their soy products like sugar, chemicals, and artificial sweeteners.
Additionally, at least 91% of all soy grown in the US has been genetically modified and contains GMOs (i.e. man-made “fake” food).
Stay away from raw soy as much as possible and use things like coconut milk instead of soy milk. Use different types of beans, raw nuts, and lentils in place of tofu or soy patties whenever possible.
The second of more unhealthy foods:
2: Agave nectar
This one is pretty common. Almost everybody still thinks agave nectar/syrup is “healthy,” but it’s simply not.
The marketing “angle” is its low-glycemic index, meaning it doesn’t raise your blood sugar quickly.
However, almost all agave is heavily processed and contains LOADS of fat-storing fructose. So even though it may not “spike” your insulin,
it can still make you fat. Excess fructose intake causes insulin resistance
and a fatty liver by raising bad triglycerides making this one of the worst unhealthy foods of this century.
Avoid all over-the-counter agave (unless you can find raw and organic).
Sorry Dr. Oz. These are just unhealthy foods! Period.
I’ll be back tomorrow with the last 2 fat-storing nightmares that were recommended during this particular episode.
Unfortunately, these are the same mistakes that people make when following the Paleo Diet (aka- Caveman Diet).
They choose ingredients they “think” are healthy, but they’re simply NOT.
That’s exactly why I wanted to introduce you to a legit Paleo Cookbook from our friends over at Paleo Hacks.
It’s a MUCH smarter and healthier way to stay on track with your nutrition – without sabotaging all of your results from the “hidden” fat-storing ingredients discussed above.
They also feature:
– Built-in portion control…
– Tasty low-carb fat-burning recipes…
– None of the wrong ingredients (like you see above)…
– And they can be prepared in just minutes…
