When looking at nutrition labels these are the ingredients that are most important to avoid.
#1 Trans Fat: partially hydrogenated oil; American’s ingest an average of 5.8g of trans fat daily, this translates to 2,117g (almost 5 pounds) per year
#2 High Fructose Corn Syrup: inexpensive sugar substitute made from yellow dent corn that causes belly fat, insulin resistance and a whole host of indirect health problems
#3 Artificial Sweeteners: although these are approved by the FDA they are not without safety risks and best avoided
#4 Sodium: we consume an average of 3,435mg of sodium a day. To keep your blood sugar in check, limit your daily sodium intake to 1,500mg or less
#5 Food Additives:
Artificial Dyes: most artificial dyes are linked to hyperactivity, ADD, and ADHD
Artificial Flavours: blanket term that could include one or hundreds of unnatural additives
Preservatives and Emulsifiers: not all are dangerous but some are known to cause liver and kidney problem, inflammation and cancer.

Working with Lisa and the Holistic You has been one of the best things I have ever done for my health. Lisa's compassion, kindness, knowledge and skill are incredible. I have learned so much from her that has helped me to not only lose and maintain healthy weight loss but introduce myself and my family to important changes in how and what we eat that will support us for a lifetime. Thank you, Lisa!!! You are the best!
