Food busters 2: Diet foods

March 14, 2008

I don’t have much time today, so this will be an experiment in keeping it to the point.

Diet foods/drinks generally try to eliminate fats of any kind, based on the common misconception that eating less fat will help you to lose weight. The problem with this, is that what actually determines weather you gain or lose weight in the end, is how many calories you intake, and how many you burn daily. Though much of the fat they cut out is indeed bad, the problem is how they make up for the loss in taste from that process. To combat the somewhat lacking taste guess what they do? add sweetener, which is guess what? HFCS. The end result is that “diet” foods are much less healthy then non-diet foods. The most notably unhealthy Diet products are by far, sodas.

So if it says diet on it, think twice, it may be even less healthy then its normal (and often more tasty) counter-parts.



Food Busters I:Milk, Should you be drinking it?

February 27, 2008

Well, I’m pretty sure that most people think milk is really good for you, and in some ways, they would be right. However, if you are an aspiring tricker, or a serious athlete of any kind, you might want to avoid drinking too much of it. Milk is known to be an anti-performer, it’s hard for your body to digest it (particularly non-organic milk), and it can even temporarily stop intestinal function, naturally this is in large quantities like, for instance, 8 glasses a day. If you really much have your milk to survive, make sure you drink organic milk, and don’t drink it before a workout. Small amounts of organic milk CAN be very good for you, but it is still an anti-performer so it’ll slow you down if you drink it before tricking, working out, or any other sport.


EDIT: This information is a little out of date and un-informed. So take it with a grain of salt please. My opinion now, is drink only organic milk, and only after work outs. other then that, it’s fine, although I don’t like it myself. ^_^
