Holiday Eating

  1. 1. Holiday Eating <br />Eat plenty ofthe foods that you love with 180-degree results. <br />
  2. 2. What am I eating? <br />White flour<br />High fructose corn syrup<br />Sugar<br />Salt<br />Canola, soy and/or vegetable oil<br />Vegetable shortening<br />Meat, eggs, poultry<br />Hydrogenated oils<br />Chocolate and chocolate chips<br />Fruits/veggies<br />
  3. 3. White Flour<br />Breaks down to sugar<br />60% + of original vitamin/mineral content lost<br />Added synthetic vitamins and minerals cause damage to organs and digestion<br />
  4. 4. High Fructose Corn Syrup<br />Increase in visceral fat storage (fat around the internal organs)<br />Fructose requires your liver to produce more fat to combat the effects of the sugar.<br />Increasedoxidization of LDL cholesterol, which leads to a higher risk for Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular problems<br />Plus, how it’s made is far from appetizing<br />Funny picture of a giraffe when I searched “high fructose corn syrup”!<br />
  5. 5. Sugar <br />Increases the body’s need for insulin<br />The greater the need for insulin, the higher the risk for Diabetes<br />Excessinsulin production = insulin resistance = surge in appetite = overeating<br />Surge in insulin causes plaque build up and suppresses tissue rebuilding<br />
  6. 6. Salt <br />Made at high temperatures and therefore lacks vital minerals<br />Fluid retention<br />High blood pressure<br />Kidney stones<br />Liver and kidney disease <br />
  7. 7. Canola Oil<br />Goitrogeniccompounds, hemagglutinins and toxic cyanide-containing glycocides which cause…<br /> - Clumping of blood cells<br /> - Nervous Disorders<br />Depression of the immune system<br />Heart lesions<br />Vitamin E deficiency<br />Contains up to 4.6% trans fatty acids as a result of the deodorizing process in making canola oil<br />High levels of free radicals make this product toxic!!!<br />
  8. 8. Vegetable Shortening<br />Same effects as canola oil and eating too much salt<br />
  9. 9. Conventional Eggs, Meat, and Poultry<br />Lack the nutrients that are found in grass-fed, free- range animal products<br />Side effects are low vitamin/mineral content and absorption of the growth hormones, antibiotics and bad fats = cancer, weight gain, heart disease <br />
  10. 10. Hydrogenated Oils<br />Heart disease<br />Cancer<br />Birth defects<br />Liver disease<br />Raise blood sugar and therefore causes weight gain<br />Interferes with mineral and essential fatty acid absorption<br />Brain damage<br />Impairs immune system<br />And the list goes on and on; we get the point right? <br />
  11. 11. Conventional Fruits/Veggies<br />Pesticide residue which causes…<br />- Cancer<br /> - Birth defects<br />Weight gain<br />Thyroid dysfunction<br />Disruptive hormone production<br />Depleted soil therefore minimal minerals/vitamin count<br />Xenoestrogens = breast cancer<br />
  12. 12. Now…the good stuff! <br />Pay attention to the ingredients and where your food is coming from and your health, as well as bank account will benefit. Here is how…<br />
  13. 13. Price Difference<br />$7.00 per pound MORE is the ONLY difference when buying the health food version of the ingredients we just talked about <br />Natural food stores have bulk sections, which brings the price of these ingredients down<br />The price for an average American’s health care costs $20.38 per day and $142.66 per week.<br />Lower overall health means more days off due to sick days <br />
  14. 14. Price Difference, con’t<br />Your overall health costs MORE if you’re consuming unhealthy foods and neglecting preventative health care such as exercise, chiropractic, nutrition and stress reduction<br />How do we save money and live a better life? Eat healthier foods, exercise, see your chiropractor, relieve stress and in return you’ll watch your medical bills decrease and feel that your quality of life has improved! Lets start with better food…<br />
