Warning: the middle of the grocery store is bad for your health…

October 11, 2014

For decades we have been obsessed with ‘diets’ and with questions like…
What’s the best diet to help me lose weight, lower my cholesterol, cure my diabetes, etc.?… But really, it’s very simple. Stay out of the middle of the grocery store! This is where all the processed foods lurk.

Processed foods are filled with poor quality fats and loads of sugar, or ingredients that quickly turn into sugar after you eat them.  It has been proven that this type of diet increases your chances, of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, obesity, and even depression, anxiety, and fatigue.

If the foods from the middle of the grocery store never make it into your home in the first place, you won’t eat them every day. So step away, move to the edge, and leave them at the store where they belong.

Here’s a quote from National Geographic’s take on food…

“It’s this shift to processed foods, taking place all over the world, that’s contributing to a rising epidemic of obesity and related diseases. If most of the world ate more local fruits and vegetables, a little meat, fish, and some whole grains (as in the highly touted Mediterranean diet), and exercised an hour a day, that would be good news for our health and for the planet.”
