Dates contain high quantities of naturally occurring sugar but they are a great source of high octane energy. Feel free to enjoy them but limit your consumption.
Flax seeds are not part of the same group of seeds that are linked to grains, which means that they are a fine source of nutrition.
French fries are a particularly unhealthy way to enjoy potatoes. The problem lies in the fact that they are fried in vegetable oil and this is off limits to anyone seeking to control their weight and boost their well-being. If you make your own fries at home, you can use coconut oil instead of vegetable oil or you can bake them or roast them to avoid the frying problem altogether.
Fruit juice is off the agenda. That’s right. Fruit juice delivers way too much sugar to your bloodstream way too quickly and produces a massive insulin reaction. Not good! The only way to enjoy fruit juice is when it’s still inside the fruit. The body has to work a lot harder to extract the energy from the fruit pulp and this slows down the absorption rate of the sugars, avoiding the sudden sugar rush and the subsequent dramatic fall off as the insulin kicks in. There’s an enormous amount of advertising surrounding the supposed health benefits of drinking fruit juice. It’s giving you the wrong information. Stick to the fruit instead and live longer.
Guar gum is a natural thickener and it’s a perfectly acceptable item on your food list.
Green beans get our yes vote despite the fact that they’re a legume and contain seeds. But green beans have very small, immature seeds inside a large green pod so the potential for damage is correspondingly small.
Hemp seeds are a great source of healthy protein. They’re not related to the harmful seeds that occur in grains so you’re free to add hemp seeds to your diet plan and enjoy the benefits.
