At Barton Chiropractic Clinic we like to remind our patients about the foods they can eat that will help them achieve new levels of health and wellness. At the end of the day, we are what we eat. But, just the same, it's also important to remind our patients and readership about the foods and drinks they should avoid, foods and drinks that, when consumed, come with some serious health consequences attached.
Below are foods you should cut out of your diet or at the very least limit your intake of.
1.) Candy / Processed Sugar
Leave the sugar and syrup out of your morning coffee and make sure to limit (or do away with altogether) candy intake. Processed sugars rot your teeth, lead to inflammation, and have zero nutritional value.
2.) Soda Pop / Sugary Beverages
Simply substituting a nice, big glass of water for that soda will help you achieve optimum levels of hydration and avoid the serious pitfalls that come along with soda consumption.
3.) Processed Carbs
Make sure that you just say "no" to the morning bagel and instead opt for clean proteins, veggies, and sweet potatoes for your morning nutrition.
4.) Cut Fruit From Smoothies
Making sure that your smoothies are veggie-dense is very important in maintaining health. When you simply juice fruit or drink fruit-only smoothies, you're getting a serious sugar spike on the same level with soda.
Some people say that nothing good comes out of a night of drinking, which we don't necessarily agree with, but it's always a good idea not to drink if you want to stay hydrated and remain productive and functional. Alcohol is also loaded with sugar, carbohydrates, and is often combined with sugary beverages that will disrupt your nutrition plan.
