Eight Foods I Wouldn’t Touch with a Ten Foot Pole

Lauryn Evarts, fitness blogger, health blogger, and diet blogger talks skinny tips and tricks for quick weight loss.

Hi.

These are foods that disgust me. Enjoy ; )…!

1.} Splenda/Equal: so sorry to spoil the fun!! I know there’s many dedicated Splenda & Equal lovers out there, but pleaseeeee substitute Stevia instead. Splendy-Wendy contains sucralose¬†& Equal has aspartame in it; this makes the brain think you’re hungry ( when you’re not ) & adds bloat.

2.} Chicken Nuggets: we’re not talking grilled chicken, peeps. The real deal: they’re actually leftover carcass pieces + sawdust-type bits. Fun!

3.} Soda ( duh ): ew (!!!). I don’t care if it’s diet, sugar-free, blah, blah. Soda is disgusting. It’s bloating & increases sugar cravings. Read more on why I hate the fizzy drink here.

4.} Certain canned soups: most of these bad boys contain so much sodium you might as well pour salt down your throat!

5.} Maraschino cherries: sick. They’re covered in red dye & artificial coloring. I’d rather eat poo.

6.} A sick-o Frappuccino: remember circa 2001 when Britney Spears would drink these, like, every second? Well, one Frappy will cost you a cool 500 cals, 16 grams of fat, 68 carbs (<<!!), & oh, ya know, just 68 grams of sugar. Not hot, Brit.

7.} Processed meat: think of a packaged hot dog or slices of boloney ( remember Spam? ). Yuck. Tons of salt, tons of fat, & tons of unknown shit. Plus processed meat is known to increase the risk of cancer & contains tons of preservatives.

8.} Lay’s ‘WOW’ Potato Chips: these are horrendous- they’re dripping in the chemical, Olestra. Side effects? Abdominal cramps, diarrhea, & loose stools ( << this fun condition is also known as anal leakage- too much? ; ) ).

Thanks, but no thanks.

Love.L

Are you a healthy bitch? I certainly am. One of my guilty pleasures is Healthy Bitch Daily [ created by Skinny Bitch author, Kim Barnouin ]. When they asked me to guest post, I was super excited about reaching out to healthy bitches everywhere. The site completely inspired me with their super skinny wisdom.

+ Ew! HFCS?!:

HFCS stands for high-frucotse corn syrup. You might as well guzzle gasoline. This baby is stored in the fat cells & forces the liver to work overtime. Always go with organic. If you’re a spicy fanatic like me, look for quality hot sauces like All Spice Cafe & mix your own homemade salad dressings.

+ Calorie, Schmalorie:

Low-cal doesn’t equal healthy. Do not justify your meal just because of the calorie count. At first glance, I check the label for sugar & carb content. When foods are high in protein & calories, they provide you will more energy & a fullness feeling.

+ Peace-out, Soda:

Soda is a giant, epic FAIL. There’s absolutely no reason to consume soda. There are too many other delicious options. It’s bloating & disgusting. Slug a Kombucha, Ayala’s Herbal Water, or an organic energy shot [ ex. Celestial Seasonings K Shots ]. Oh, & before you grab that cup of coffee that you’ll diiiiiiieeee without on an empty stomach, eat a banana.

+ A Super Sized No-No:

The only thing that you should be drinking that is larger than your handbag, is a water bottle. A smoothie, even if it’s filled with fruit, should not be weighing down your arm with its heavy load. Portion control applies to bubbly, skinny lattes, and/or juices. Solution: order smalls/talls or buy portion-sized glasswear to keep yourself accountable!
