Metabolic Death Foods ⁃ sugar ( fruit juice ). Ex: Naked or Odwalla
– Canola , vegetable oil, hydrogenated oils ( cellular inflammation) these are GMO’s which kill probiotics in the gut
⁃ Conventional dairy ( loaded with drugs, hormones and antibiotics) – replace with coconut milk or goat yogurt
⁃ Wheat ( gluten, phytic acid which are enzyme blockers, amylopectin cause blood sugar spikes)
⁃ Artificial sweeteners ( Splenda kills off probiotics in gut ) found in diet sodas, protein powders – replace with stevia
⁃ Watch out with peanuts – high in omega 6 oils and mycotoxins which trigger candida and leaky gut
Foods to Add
⁃ chia and flax seeds increase energy and metabolic function also high in fiber and omega 3’s and plant based protein
⁃ green leafy vegetables- high chlorophyll, magnesium and Vit K
⁃ Cruciferous veggies – reduces estrogen key to fat loss. ( broccoli and cabbage)
⁃ Root vegetables ( beets and carrots )
⁃ Berries ( resveratrol and flavonoids)
