20 Health Foods That Are Sabotaging Your Weight Loss & Health Goals

How can you expect to manage health & weight, when you’ve never been taught how to? It’s not you!
It’s a broken approach.

There is a reason our society is getting sicker…today you see more illness, obesity, allergies, digestive disorders, cancer, diabetes, immune & thyroid disruptions, neurological conditions, etc. You may fail to understand how nutrient imbalances deeply effect your health, because you THINK you’re already “eating healthy”, but you’re not choosing foods that provide life, energy & health to the body because you’ve never been taught how to.

So, you’re actually creating & struggling needlessly with poor weight, health issues & food cravings by “eating healthy”!…*Read on for our “health foods” to avoid in order to control health & weight.

BOMBSHELL…The following “health foods” are NOT healthy for managing your body weight, energy or illness!

The following are NOT “healthy foods”, nor will they support a healthy body weight, a strong immune system to avoid illness & disease, or balanced energy & mood for your busy life! If you’re consuming these masquerading “health” foods, their ingredients may be keeping your body in a state of hormonal & nutrient imbalance which generates a physical food addiction with uncontrollable food cravings, while disrupting your bodies natural ability to stay thin & healthy! Take a look at these foods posing as “health foods” that are DEFEATING your health….

* Smart Balance butter
* Eggbeaters
* Splenda (Yes, Splenda!) & other artificial sweeteners
* Breads & cereals that claim to be “Whole Grain”
* Soy milk, soy cheese & other soy-based products like Tofu
* Morningstar Veggie Burgers & similar meatless products
* Low-fat or Non-Fat Packaged or Cured Lunch Meats
* Healthy Balance soups
* Fruit juices

So you’ve thought you were doing the proper things to be healthy & avoid weight gain, but your out-dated health & nutrition approach is wreaking havoc on your health! Efficient & effective nutrition approach frees you of physical food addictions, balances hormone disruptions, and allows your body to return to great health & a natural weight with ease & abundance, vs. harmful diets & starvation!

You are evolving, food production is evolving, your lifestyle & demands are evolving,… so why isn’t your approach to nutrition & health evolving? You need a nutrition & health mindset shift!

NEWSFLASH: You will NEVER manage your weight & health successfully, or avoid disease in your lifetime, without a mindset shift to nutrition.

If you want to be in control of your health, you need to empower yourself with accurate, individualized health & nutrition knowledge. The most common mistake is OVER-estimating the use of exercise & UNDER-estimating the use of nutrition. If you’re approaching nutrition accurately to get your body in healthful balance, there is no need to waste endless hours exercising to battle you’re health. With a targeted nutrition foundation, you’ll become healthier internally, thinner naturally, & you’ll lose the need to OVER exercise, because movement is simply a COMPLIMENT to a solid, nutrition program – not a weapon against it. And who couldn’t use more hours in their day?!

Our societies disease-care system is slowly realizing we need a PROACTIVE vs. REACTIVE health approach vs. waiting til sickness emerges before we pay attention!
