 We need to bust myths because of all the noise and confusion of what is good or bad for you. Here are my top 3. 1. Energy drinks are less harmful than soda- A 16-ounce can of Red Bull or Monster delivers as much as 280 calories of pure sugar, which is about 80 calories more than you’d find in a 16-ounce cup of Pepsi. Wow.

 1. Pay attention to the descriptions- focus on food with descriptions such as steamed, broiled, or grilled. Obviously avoid anything deep fried or covered in sauce. 2. Drink water with your meal- Soda is empty calories. And as you know SUGAR IS THE ENEMY. 3. Hold the extras: be aware of dressings, spreads, cheese, and other condiments that are loaded with fat and calories.

Let's start with what starch is. Starches are actually long complex chains of simple sugar, also known as “complex carbohydrates”. Like sugar, starch has the potential to elevate blood sugar levels quickly. Some starches are actually more glycemic than some sugar. High glycemic foods spike your blood sugar level, which in turn releases the hormone insulin in the body.

. 1. EATING JUNK FOOD HELPS YOUR STRESS- Your stressed out sitting on your sofa with a big tub of chocolate fudge ice cream. That momment maybe comforting but ccording to a British Journal of Psychiatry found that people who ate highly processed food were 58% more likely to be depressed than those who eat the least. Try a healthlier snack like beef jerky.
