Summary
When were hungry, we are often more concerned with quashing the hunger than the quality of what were eating. This book looks at processed food, which might have started as whole, healthy foods, but are now milled, coated or mixed with salt and preservatives, and fried or cooked. Oftentimes this processed food is cleverly packed as wholesome, even when it isnt. Readers will learn how fake food ingredients can contribute to obesity, high blood pressure, and cardiovascular disease. Fake foods have also been linked to stomach and colon cancers, and to high blood sugar levels. The book provides suggestions for real food choices, creating a regime of breakfasts, lunches, and dinners that are healthy and satisfying.
