Advice From a Nutritionist: 5 Things to Remove from Your Diet NOW for Better Health Immediately!
Are you ever confused about what you should and should not eat?
What is okay as a “once-in-a-while” food and what is an “avoid-at-all-cost” food?
Here, we explain the 5 foods you should remove from your diet, and never eat again!
Stop Aspartame! Bigstock Images.
Aspartame is a neurotoxin - which means it actually chemically toxifies your brain cells to death. It is used as a sweetener in gum, yogurt, diet drinks and many pre-packaged foods. There are over 92 known side effects associated with aspartame poisoning, such as epileptic seizures, migraines, aggression, heart palpitations, irreversible brain damage, hives, nausea, and blindness.

Typical factory farming. Choose local, organic, free range farms instead. Bigstock images.
2. Farmed Fish and Factory Raised Meat
Farmed fish are grown in small tanks with high numbers of fish, which makes the water extremely concentrated with excrement and toxins. Fed a diet of antibiotics, corn and growth hormones, (since when do fish eat corn? or antibiotics?) to grow them bigger, faster, they have extremely high toxicity levels. This is very similar to the factory farming of meat, chicken and pork, which should also be avoided. Find a local farmer at your farmer’s market, find out where your food comes from, how the animals are treated, what they are fed and do some research!

3. Fast Food
We have all been there - you’re in the car, running to an appointment, driving home late from work, or just simply starving, and you swing into the drive-thru. While you can make better choices at fast food restaurants than choosing the biggest burger they offer, it is often altogether impossible. The “healthy options” such as salads or vegetables always come with dressings and dips that have rancid fats, high sugar contents and poor ingredients. Keep healthy snacks in your car for emergencies, and plan ahead by bringing an apple, banana or bag of raw nuts with you.
Leave soft drinks at the store! Bigstock images.
Just put it down. Pour it down the drain. And leave it at the store. Soft drinks have ZERO nutrient value, and are extremely high in sugar. These drinks actually leave your body in a deficit, because sugar leeches nutrients from the body, and you have to work so hard to expel the toxins and clean up the destruction they cause. Drink WATER!
Avoid Sugar! Bigstock Images.
Ah, the anti-nutrient. Found not just in candy, sweets and chocolate, but also in breads, pasta, and rice. Sugar has been compared to some of the major drugs, such as heroin and cocaine, as being just as addictive and difficult to quit consuming.
Also, a major reason to kick this out of your diet… Cancer is fed by sugar. It is the number one fuel that drives tumour growth and the spread of this dis-ease. Read more about Otto Warburg, Ph.D’s discovery in 1931 here:
So what do you eat instead of these toxins?
Eat foods that do not require a label, that are in their whole, raw form. Yes, most of these foods are found in the produce department, as well as the beans, legumes and raw nuts and seeds aisles. Choose organic versions where possible and avoid genetically modified foods. Visit your local farmer’s market for an amazing selection of local, consciously harvested foods, where you can learn more about the origination of your food.
