Discover The Truth About Processed Foods & Weight Gain
One of the problems with searching for weight loss advice is that different health & weight loss communities demonize different foods.
For example, because of some weight loss advice I read online way back in 2012 I didnt eat cheese for two whole years.
(Believe me, those were two ROUGH years! And I now know that cheese really isnt the villain when it comes to trying losing weight.)
Yet other health and nutrition communities will say that cheese can be a great part of a weight loss plan. It just depends on which diet you like!TRENDING: Science Reveals Easy, No-Workout Ways to Lose Weight While You Snooze!
However, there are some foods (or types of foods) that pretty much everyone agrees are NOT good for you. These are foods that can be damaging to your health and can also lead to extra pounds piling onto your belly, thighs, and rear-end.
One of those is processed foods. If you have done any research lately about foods to avoid when youre trying to lose weight or simply trying to get healthier youve probably read that you should avoid processed foods.
But really, what ARE processed foods? What makes something count as processed or not processed?

Thats what Im here to answer today in this video. Im going to dive into what processed foods are whether theyre really that bad for your health or your waistline and how to make healthier food decisions.

This is such an important topic and one that I don’t think is talked about nearly enough.
Come a little closer, because I’m going to blow your minds… not ALL processed foods are bad for you.SPECIAL: This Scientific Trick Can Reduce Your Belly Fat By 8.5% in Just 12 Weeks…
That’s right! I said it, and it’s true. There are many processed foods that are quite healthy for you.
Now, the difference between the healthy and unhealthy ones is how processed they are.
There are two types of processed foods: minimally processed and ultra processed. Now, the more processed food is, the more junk that’s usually put into it.
These highly processed foods include things like granola bars, sugary cereals, packaged snacks, candy, and a lot of boxed side dishes. They’re not healthy and can make it more difficult for you to meet your weight loss goals.
That’s because these ultra-processed foods have a lot of preservatives, chemicals, added sugars, fats, food colorings, artificial flavoring, and other junk added to them. Your body doesn’t need all those extra ingredients and they can make you gain weight.
But there are some processed foods that are good for you, too that are minimally processed.
A good example would be whole grain-oats. Oats are a key ingredient in oatmeal, one of the best breakfasts for weight loss.
And yet, the oats you buy at a grocery store are a processed food (unless you went out and harvested your own oats straight from the field)… but they’re not ultra processed.
A great comparison would be between steel-cut oats and instant oatmeal. Now, steel-cut oats are barely processed and usually just cut into smaller pieces, while instant oatmeal goes through additional processing so that it will cook faster.BRAND-NEW: Research Shows These 3 Sugar Substitutes Are Best For Burning Fat (Plus 2 You Should NEVER Eat)
