Healthy Diets of Fitness Foods Make Us FatA recent study shows that “fitness” foods may cause consumers to eat more and exercise less. The issue comes down to how we respond to the marking. Nobody makes a decision with the conscious effort to be unhealthy. We are often drawn to foods whose packaging suggests healthy living. The problem arises when we over indulge in this type of food, just like over indulging in anything. We fall into this trap because our minds think we can have more because the food is healthy. When we over eat, we often feel lethargic and don't exercise the needed amount. This assumes though that the healthy food choice is actually healthy. Buzzfeed published an article showcasing healthy cereals with high sugar. Each of the following cereals contains more sugar per serving than a powdered doughnut:
- Kellogg’s Smart Start
- General Mills Total Raisin Bran
- Cascadian Farm Organic Oats and Honey Granola
Supplements Work as Well as Fast FoodGoogle "sports supplements" to discover a plethora of post work-out options. They all claim to be key for a healthy diet. But why pay for these products when the #2 at your local drive-thru is just as good for you? A recent study shows that small portions of fast food are as effective as sports supplements for after work-out recovery. The study was published in the International Journal of Sport Nutrition and Exercise Science (queue a mic drop). No surprise this study came from the state that legalized the consumption of roadkill. That is the epiphany of eating whatever. The researchers found that after participants depleted their bodies of glycogen, it didn’t matter if they refueled with fast food or sports supplements. Gylcogen doesn’t discriminate, Baby! Grant it the study had a small sample size, but results. No more taking flack for eating that post workout burger. Say goodbye to that healthy diet.
