Better food options
- Always have a bowl of fruit handy, or a stock of fruit in the frig. This is much healthier than anything on this list.
- Cut up veggies, like carrots, celery, peppers make a handy replacement snack, instead of candy or doughnuts.
- Nuts and seeds are easy to carry along anywhere. They provide some protein and healthy fat. Almonds are on the alkaline side of the chart. Go for raw, as opposed to roasted whenever possible.
The Most Fattening of All
In my opinion, white bread or white flour is the most fattening food. It quickly turns into sugar in your digestive system. There is no fiber to slow this process down. It rapidly spikes your blood sugar levels, causing an insulin release. This causes your body to store fat. Even whole wheat bread with the fiber is only slightly better, still fattening though. And causes problems for people with gluten sensitivity, like me. Wheat flour is hidden in a lot of things, so it’s a bit tricky to get it out of the diet completely.
Products made from white flour, like cereal can be really fattening too. When I was a youngster, I always started my day with 2 bowls of sugary, white flour based cereal, with milk. This always resulted in a blood sugar crash within 2 hours, causing headaches, inability to focus, and low energy. At school I was off to my locker at the first opportunity to eat a quick snack. Ahhh… temporary relief.
Fixing my diet (later in life, when I knew better) fixed the problem. Now I focus on healthy fat and protein, lots of veggies and moderate fruits. Learning about the alkaline diet helped a lot.
