We all know a bit about which foods are good for our health & beauty but often forget about the ones that do good harm to our overall health & metabolism. Remember no beauty tip is gonna work if you are unhealthy. You gotta have a healthy body to respond to every thing you do on the outside. Hence maintain the balance with the healthy regime & diet for the inside of your body too.
So whether you are a bride to be, a model, a working woman or man, pregnant or just a simple housewife, if these foods are a part of your daily diet then its time to slow down their consumption and eventually eliminate them from your diet for healthy & beautiful body.
1. White stuff : all your cornflour, maida, white rice, baking soda, white bread, salt & sugar have to be eliminated from your diet. These things make you FAT.
Mainly because the flours are processed foods that do not contain the required nutrition needed for your body, instead opt for whole grains here is why? Refined grain carbohydrates are unhealthy, as they have been depleted of their original fiber content (think of foods made from white flour like cakes, cookies, biscuits, white bread, etc). Their carbohydrate energy is soaked quickly like other simple sugars. Whole grains are healthier than refined carbohydrates. A low carb diet can be harmful to the body, as the body gets the required glucose from the brain and red blood cells. In such a case, the liver and the kidneys have to metabolize protein for producing essential glucose needed by red blood cells and the brain. If this does not happen, the body can get affected adversely. Bad carbs come from foods like soft drinks, alcohol, cakes, chips, cookies, white bread and white rice. Try to avoid them as much as possible, and consume the good carbs to have a healthy body.
2. Cooking Oil : Cooking oil in inevitable while preparing a dish. Whether it is a salad or main course, you need to use oil. But choosing the right cooking oil can save you from heart diseases, cholesterol blockages, obesity and digestion problems. The key is to use oils in moderation only. Choose healthy options of Rice bran oil, olive oil, butter, ghee, mustard oil, sunflower oil. Any other refined oils will do your body no good. Especially in packaged snacks & bites like cheetos, kurkure, etc.
3. Monosodium Glutamate (MSG): A form of concentrated salt, MSG was found to cause headaches, irritable bowel syndrome, and asthma attacks, and in animal studies, to be toxic to the liver and even harm pregnant & nursing mothers. Researchers commented, “There is considerable evidence to suggest that consumption of MSG is a serious public health problem….” it is found in ready to eat foods & fast foods too. Read up the ingredients of what you eat to find out.
I advise to look up these three items in your diet and also find out more about them before consuming them excessively.
