Nutrition 7-Diets

WHAT ARE THE WORSE DIETS 2020?

Before I get to the list and some updated information, I just want to let you know that I not only do my research but I also consult with my doctors, remember like I mention before I have very serious problems all my life with my weight. I am not talking like I am negative about diets, it is that we need to be inform remember the best diet of the world is very simple is call BALANCE.

I had many doctors and something that I noticed from all the good doctors is that when you ask them, What diet out there should I follow, they never but never recommend any particular diets. They just say be careful what you eat and always exercise, of course, they can refer to a few programs that are so close to what a good nutrition program or diet should be like for example the Mediterranean Diet.

We need to remember also I mentioned in past articles that when mankind was created they use to eat just vegetables and fruits. NOT MEAT. That was later on. So, in reality, we do not need meats to survive or have a good diet. I will say is probably even much better not to eat meats but again, is best to just limit some meats like red meats like steaks, but I have news for you.

Do you know what is the ONLY RED MEAT that any nutritionist will say is acceptable to eat?  Well, that is Dear Meat or is call Venison. Extremely low-fat meat and pure proteins.

Now, something interesting I learn that is best to know how the dear was killed especially if is from a friend that hunts, if it was shot, you have to make sure that is been very clean the part where the bullet is because it can cause a bacteria from the gun powder. So if you hunt is best to use the arrow. I learn that from a hunter.

Now lets get to the list worse diets and I have to mention that I am not going to much details since it says there a bad so what the point, so I will put a few facts and I invite you to do you own search if you not satisfy with the information and even that is good I always encourage people to do so and like I always say, consult with your doctor and or nutritionist.

Here are a few bad diets updated this year. 

The Dukan Diet:
Is the Dukan diet a fad diet?
Dukan Diet. The Dukan Diet is a high-protein low-carbohydrate fad diet devised by Pierre Dukan. The diet is not nutritionally sound and it carries risks to kidney and cardiovascular health.
Keto Diet:
Image result for keto DIET HOW BAD IT IS
The ketogenic diet is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that shares many similarities with the Atkins and low-carb diets. It involves drastically reducing carbohydrate intake and replacing it with fat. This reduction in carbs puts your body into a metabolic state called ketosis.
The keto diet could cause low blood pressure, kidney stones, constipation, nutrient deficiencies and an increased risk of heart disease. Strict diets like keto could also cause social isolation or disordered eatingKeto is not safe for those with any conditions involving their pancreas, liver, thyroid or gallbladder.Jun 21, 2019.
  Whole30 Diet:
 The whole30 diet involves eating only certain food groups. The Whole30 diet is a 30-day program created in 2009. The basis for the program is to deal with underlying health issues in the body by removing certain groups of foods, which the creators of the diet believe are harmful.  May 9, 2019
The Whole30 is a 30-day fad diet that emphasizes whole foods and the elimination of sugar, alcohol, grains, legumes, soy, and dairy. The Whole30 is similar to but more restrictive than the paleo diet, as adherents may not eat natural sweeteners like honey or maple.
 There were named as the worst overall diets for 2020. US News says that the Dukan Diet is too restrictive and that there’s no evidence it works. US News said that the Keto Diet ranked as the worst diet for healthy eating.

Why then so many people follow this Diets?

One simple answer. RUSH. And that is the worse mistake with all these diets. I have to say this again and again. The best Diet is the BALANCE one and IT SHOULD BE YOU LIFE DIET.

And that is the key here, all these diets it does not matter design for very fast weight loss. And I am not saying that is wrong if it is life threat or any other particular reason, but if you go to extremes and do not consult your doctor, later on, we will see the results and depending on what do we do that will be the results.

Later on, I will keep you updated and talk about the worse things we can eat or drink but if we do eat some stuff that is bad but the question is: That means I can never but never eat like Ice creams, candies, chips? We will talk about that and more in future articles.

20 FOODS THAT ARE BAD FOR YOUR HEALTH

 

Now before we get to that I want to share something very important that lots of people including myself can be mistaken and is what it comes to diet drinks like for example Diet Pepsi or Coke which are my favorite.

Now remember what I always say, it is not eliminating is moderation. Only if a doctor tells you otherwise because of any condition.

It is very correct that these diet sodas are 0 calories and because of that, we think: well now I can have any I want. Well sorry but NO.  One or Two is acceptable a day according to my investigation. But why is it a bad idea to abuse these diet drinks?

Diet Soda is Just as Bad as Regular Soda

Aspartame is an artificial sweetener regularly used in diet sodas, and when It is consumed if breaks down into three chemical compounds: phenylalanine, aspartic acid, and methanol. ……… And speaking of diseases, diet soda may also increase the risk of heart disease and even cancer.

So keep that in mine when you read about the foods and in this case drinks that we should not have or again MODERATION. If we can avoided much better.

And remember WATER WATER AND MORE WATER this is very critical and later on we will talk more about this and also we will cover other subjects like for example some Myths about frozen foods.

 

Now lets get down to it here are foods that are not healthy and alternatives.

 It’s easy to get confused about which foods are healthy and which aren’t.

You generally want to avoid certain foods if you want to lose weight and prevent chronic illnesses.

In this article, healthy alternatives are mentioned whenever possible.

Here are 20 foods that are generally unhealthy — although most people can eat them in moderation on special occasions without any permanent damage to their health.

 

1. Sugary drinks

Added sugar is one of the worst ingredients in the modern diet.

However, some sources of sugar are worse than others, and sugary drinks are particularly harmful.

When you drink liquid calories, your brain doesn’t appear to register them as food. Thus, you may end up drastically increase your total calorie intake.

When consumed in large amounts, sugar can drive insulin resistance and is strongly linked to non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. It’s also associated with various serious conditions, including type 2 diabetes and heart disease.

Some people believe that sugary drinks are the most fattening aspect of the modern diet — and drinking them in large amounts can drive fat gain and obesity.

Alternatives

Drink water, soda water, coffee, or tea instead. Adding a slice of lemon to water or soda water can provide a burst of flavor.

2. Most pizzas

Pizza is one of the world’s most popular junk foods.

Most commercial pizzas are made with unhealthy ingredients, including the highly refined dough and heavily processed meat. Pizza also tends to be extremely high in calories.

Alternatives

Some restaurants offer healthier ingredients. Homemade pizzas can also be very healthy, as long as you choose wholesome ingredients.

3. White bread

Most commercial bread is unhealthy if eaten in large amounts, as they’re made from refined wheat, which is low in fiber and essential nutrients and may lead to rapid spikes in blood sugar (10).

Alternatives

For people who can tolerate gluten, Ezekiel bread is an excellent choice. Whole-grain bread is also healthier than white bread.

If you have problems with gluten or carbs, then here are 15 recipes for bread that are both gluten-free and low in carbs.

4. Most fruit juices

Fruit juice is often assumed to be healthy.

While juice contains some antioxidants and vitamin C, it also packs high amounts of liquid sugar.

In fact, fruit juice harbors just as much sugar as sugary drinks like Coke or Pepsi — and sometimes even more.

Alternatives

Some fruit juices have been shown to have health benefits despite their sugar content, such as pomegranate and blueberry juices.

However, these should be considered occasional supplements, not an everyday part of your diet.

5. Sweetened breakfast cereals

Breakfast cereals are processed cereal grains, such as wheat, oats, rice, and corn.

They’re especially popular among children and frequently eaten with milk.

To make them more palatable, the grains are roasted, shredded, pulped, rolled, or flaked. They’re generally high in added sugar.

The main downside of most breakfast cereals is their high added sugar content. Some are so sweet that they could even be compared to candy.

Alternatives

Choose breakfast cereals that are high in fiber and low in added sugar. Even better, make your oat porridge from scratch.

6. Fried, grilled, or broiled food

Frying, grilling, and broiling are among the unhealthiest cooking methods.

Foods cooked in these ways are often highly palatable and calorie-dense. Several types of unhealthy chemical compounds also form when food is cooked under high heat.

These include acrylamides, acrolein, heterocyclic amines, oxysterols, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), and advanced glycation end products (AGEs).

Many chemicals formed during high-heat cooking have been linked to an increased risk of cancer and heart disease.

Alternatives

To improve your health, choose milder and healthier cooking methods, such as boiling, stewing, blanching, and steaming.

7. Pastries, cookies, and cakes

Most pastries, cookies, and cakes are unhealthy if eaten in excess.

Packaged versions are generally made with refined sugar, refined wheat flour, and added fats. Shortening, which may be high in unhealthy trans fats, is sometimes added.

These treats might be tasty, but they have almost no essential nutrients, copious calories, and many preservatives.

Alternatives

If you can’t stay away from dessert, spring for Greek yogurt, fresh fruit, or dark chocolate.

8. French fries and potato chips

Whole, white potatoes are very healthy.

However, the same cannot be said of French fries and potato chips.

These foods are very high in calories, and it’s easy to eat excessive amounts. Several studies link French fries and potato chips to weight gain.

These foods may also contain large amounts of acrylamides, which are carcinogenic substances that form when potatoes are fried, baked, or roasted.

Alternatives

Potatoes are best consumed boiled, not fried. If you need something crunchy to replace potato chips, try baby carrots or nuts.

9. Gluten-free junk foods

About one-third of the U.S. population actively tries to.

Yet, people often replace healthy, gluten-containing foods with processed junk foods that happen to be gluten-free.

These gluten-free replacement products are often high in sugar and refined grains like corn starch or tapioca starch. These ingredients may trigger rapid spikes in blood sugar and are low in essential nutrients.

Alternatives

Choose naturally gluten-free foods, such as unprocessed plant and animal foods.

10. Agave nectar

Agave nectar is a sweetener that’s often marketed as healthy.

However, it’s highly refined and extremely high in fructose. High amounts of fructose from added sweeteners can be disastrous for health.

Agave nectar is even higher in fructose than many other sweeteners.

Whereas table sugar is 50% fructose and high-fructose corn syrup around 55%, agave nectar is 85% fructose.

Alternatives

Stevia and erythritol are healthy, natural, and calorie-free alternatives.

11. Low-fat yogurt

Yogurt can be incredibly healthy.

Nonetheless, most yogurts found in the grocery store are bad for you.

They’re often low in fat but loaded with sugar to compensate for the flavor that fat provides. Put simply, most yogurt has had its healthy, natural fats replaced with an unhealthy ingredient.

Additionally, many yogurts don’t provide probiotic bacteria as generally believed. They’re often pasteurized, which kills most of their bacteria.

Alternatives

Choose regular, full-fat yogurt that contains live or active cultures (probiotics). If possible, buy varieties from grass-fed cows.

12. Low-carb junk foods

Low-carb diets are very popular.

While you can eat plenty of whole foods on such a diet, you should watch out for processed low-carb replacement products. These include low-carb candy bars and meal replacements.

These foods are often highly processed and packed with additives.

Alternatives

If you’re on a low-carb diet, aim for foods that are naturally low in carbs, which include eggs, seafood, and leafy greens.

13. Ice cream

Ice cream may be delicious, but it’s loaded with sugar.

This dairy product is also high in calories and easy to overeat. If you eat it as a dessert, you’re usually piling it on top of your normal calorie intake.

Alternatives

It’s possible to opt for healthier brands or make your ice cream using fresh fruit and less sugar.

14. Candy bars

Candy bars are incredibly unhealthy.

They’re high in sugar, refined wheat flour, and processed fats while also very low in essential nutrients.

What’s more, these treats will leave you hungry because of the way that your body metabolizes these sugar bombs.

Alternatives

Eat fruit or a piece of quality dark chocolate instead.

15. Processed meat

Even though unprocessed meat can be healthy and nutritious, the same is not true for processed meats.

Studies show that people who eat processed meats have a higher risk of many serious ailments, including colon cancer, type 2 diabetes, and heart disease.

Most of these studies are observational, meaning that they can’t prove that processed meat is to blame. However, the statistical link is strong and consistent between studies.

Alternatives

If you want to eat bacon, sausages, or pepperoni, try to buy from local butchers who don’t add many unhealthy ingredients.

16. Processed cheese

The cheese is healthy in moderation.

It’s loaded with nutrients, and a single slice packs all the nutrients as a glass of milk.

Still, processed cheese products are nothing like regular cheese. They’re mostly made with filler ingredients that are engineered to have a cheese-like appearance and texture.

Make sure to read labels to confirm that your cheese contains dairy and few artificial ingredients.

Alternatives

Eat real cheese instead. Healthy types include feta, mozzarella, and cottage cheeses. Many vegan cheese alternatives can also be good choices.

17. Most fast-food meals

Generally speaking, fast-food chains serve junk food.

Most of their offerings are mass-produced and low in nutrients.

Despite their low prices, fast foods may contribute to disease risk and harm your general wellness. You should especially watch out for fried items.

Alternatives

As a result of mounting pressure, many fast-food chains have started offering healthy options.

18. High-calorie coffee drinks

Coffee is loaded with antioxidants and offers many benefits.

Notably, coffee drinkers have a lower risk of serious diseases, such as type 2 diabetes and Parkinson’s.

At the same time, the creamers, syrups, additives, and sugars that are frequently added to coffee are highly unhealthy.

These products are just as harmful as any other sugar-sweetened beverage.

Alternatives

Drink plain coffee instead. You can add small amounts of heavy cream or full-fat milk if you desire.

19. Anything with added sugar or refined grains

It’s important to avoid — or at least limit — foods that contain added sugar, refined grains, and artificial trans fats.

These are some of the unhealthiest but most common ingredients in the modern diet. Thus, the importance of reading labels cannot be overstated.

This even applies to so-called health foods.

Alternatives

Aim for nutrient-dense, whole foods, such as fresh fruits and whole grains.

20. Most highly processed foods

The simplest way to eat healthily and lose weight is to avoid processed foods as much as possible.

Processed goods are often packaged and loaded with excess salt or sugar.

Alternatives

When you’re shopping, make sure to read food labels. Try to load up your cart with plenty of veggies and other whole foods.

The bottom line

Though the Western diet packs plenty of junk food, you can maintain a healthy diet if you steer clear of the processed, high-sugar items mentioned above.

If you focus on whole foods, you’ll be well on your way to feeling better and reclaiming your health.

Plus, practicing mindfulness when you eat by listening to your body’s cues and paying attention to flavors and textures can help you be more aware of how much and what you eat, allowing you to achieve a better relationship with food.

Now remember like I mention there is more to come some info about water, myths about Frozen Foods and something more interesting that we will talk about is FOODS THAT IT SUPPOSE TO BE HEALTHY BUT (IS IT? CAN IT BE EVEN JUNK FOOD?) WELL KEEP IN TOUCH AND I WILL LET YOU KNOW.

DIETS THAT ALREADY KILL MORE PEOPLE THAN  TOBACCO

The foods we eat are contributing to the early death of some 11 million people a year, according to a recent study published in the prestigious magazine The Lancet.

The latest edition of the Study of the Global Burden of Diseases found that our daily diet already kills more than tobacco and is currently linked to one in five deaths worldwide.

And the salt – whether it is contained in bread, soy sauce or processed foods – is the one that cuts the greatest number of lives worldwide.

Is changing the diet really effective in curing acne?
Meat, vegetables, and nuts … the diet to feed 10,000 million people
The Study of the Global Burden of Diseases is the most authoritative assessment of the causes of death of people in all countries of the world.

And the most recent analysis used estimates of the eating habits of 195 countries to determine how often the diet shortened lives.

The research, the researchers explain, was not about obesity, but about “poor quality” diets that damage the heart and cause cancer. What diets cause more damage?

According to the research, dangerous diets are those that contain: Too much salt (causing three million deaths) Very few whole grains (three million deaths) Very little fruit (two million) The rest of the main causes were associated with low levels in the consumption of nuts, seeds, vegetables, fiber and omega-3 from seafood.

“We found that diet is one of the dominant drivers of health worldwide. It is something that has a lot of weight,” Professor Christopher Murray, director of the Institute of Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington.

Why is what we eat killing people?

About 10 of the 11 million dietary-related deaths were due to cardiovascular disease, which explains why salt is such a serious problem.

Too much salt raises blood pressure, which in turn increases the risk of heart attacks and strokes.

Salt can also have a direct effect on the heart and blood vessels, which can cause heart failure.

Whole grains, fruits, and vegetables have the opposite effect: they are “cardio protective” and reduce the risk of heart problems. Cancers and type 2 diabetes made up the rest of the diet-related deaths.

Anna Díaz Font of the Global Fund for Cancer Research told the PA agency: “This study is very important because it demonstrates the important role that diet plays in the health of individuals and populations.”

“Our research shows that having a poor diet increases the risk of cancer and obesity, which further increases the risk of 12 different types of cancer.”

More nuts and seeds?

According to the study, the healthy foods that were lacking in most diets worldwide are nuts and seeds.

That lack is, in fact, the leading cause of dietary-related deaths throughout Latin America.

And the regular readers of BBC Mundo will have realized that these same foods were largely included in the “planetary diet” that was released in January, to help save lives, the planet and feed 10,000 millions of people.

Meat, vegetables and nuts … the diet to feed 10,000 million people

So why don’t we eat them?

Professor Nita Forouhi, from the University of Cambridge, says: “The perception is that they are small packages of energy that will make you fat. But the truth is that they are full of good fats.”

“And most people don’t see them as a common food. The other problem is their cost.”

Nueces.Nuts are not only for squirrels

I thought meat and sugar were bad foods … The huge debate about fat and sugar and the link between red and processed meat with cancer have attracted big headlines in recent years.

“These foods can be harmful, as we have explained. But they are a much smaller problem than the low consumption of whole grains, fruits, nuts, seeds, and vegetables,” says Murray. Which countries in the world consume more meat (and there is one in Latin America) The study also showed that everywhere in the world there is high consumption of soft drinks.

Researchers warn that it is time for health campaigns to stop talking about nutrients such as fat and sugar and instead promote healthy foods. Is it worth a tasty but unhealthy diet?

According to the researchers, bad eating habits are reducing the life expectancy of people around the world for several years. But Murray warns that the important questions we should ask ourselves are: “Am I going to die at age 50 from a heart attack?

Will I have some of the diet-related cancers at age 40?” Which countries have a better diet? Mediterranean countries have one of the lowest numbers of dietary-related deaths worldwide.

In fact, Israel has the lowest dietary-related death rate on the entire planet: 89 per 100,000 people, per year, followed by France and Spain. The countries of Southeast, South and Central Asia, meanwhile, are at the opposite end of the spectrum. And the country with the worst rate of deaths most related to diet is Uzbekistan: 892 per 100,000 people, per year.

DIETS

Let me see, Is this good or not?

How many of us, have we ever met in front of the mirror thinking: I want to lose weight.
The best-known strategy is to look everywhere for the perfect diet, the pill that is fashionable or the recipe that my friend’s cousin recommended.

Anyway, the only objective in the mind is to lower those extra kilos and now. The end result is to return to the starting point, facing the same mirror thinking: once again the diet did not work.

The main mistake is that we repeat the same strategy, seeking to achieve different results.


But, diets do not work in the long term simply and simply: because they are obsolete (period).

If you have been in this situation constantly, and you are looking for a definitive solution, the best option is not a change of diet, the only solution is a change of mind. Do you want to know how to achieve it?


If you are making plans for a year, seed rice; if you make them for two decades, plant trees; if you do them for a lifetime, educate a person.


Our life these days is too dynamic, we are constantly moving, we live in a world with job responsibilities, educational, social commitments, family obligations, it is too complicated to count calories and grams to achieve the diet and also comply with everything else. It is too confusing and exhausting, so we generally abort the “I want to be fit” mission.


Losing weight is a serious problem that thousands of people around the world face. Metabolic consequences such as the appearance of chronic diseases (diabetes, hypertension, cardiovascular diseases, etc.) are evident. So maintaining an adequate weight has been reported with an immediate action priority.


Today’s diets are outdated because they don’t adapt to current circumstances and that’s why WE DON’T DO THEM. For several years the scheme managed has not evolved while the lives of people have.

Today, we live in a world that is in a hurry, productivity has tripled and the demands of today’s world carry demands that force us to completely displace our food.

What is needed is to solve the problem from the root, and this is only achieved by building new life habits from scratch.

The objective of this article is to explain why changing habits is the best strategy for weight loss and maintenance.
The mistakes of a typical diet


A typical diet is one that tells you to eat every day, you have a menu with fixed foods per day and generally have defined portions. The following example represents some commonly found diets:

Breakfast Lunch Dinner: Look at this example.


Monday
1 fruit + 200ml of milk + 120g of bread125g of grilled breast + portion of vegetables acted cheese + Drink without milk


Tuesday
Skimmed yogurt + 60g oatmeal 125g smoked salmon + serving of vegetables 200g steamed rice + vegetable potion


Wednesday
1 hard-boiled egg + tea125gr of roast beef + ½ serving of avocado Vegetable soup



Thursday
1 fruit + 200ml of milk + 120g of bread125g of grilled breast + portion of vegetables1 can of tuna with 40g of whole wheat bread

Friday
+ 60g of oatmeal125g of smoked salmon + portion of vegetables acted cheese + Milk-free drink


Saturday
1 fruit + 200ml of milk + 120g of bread125gr of roasted meat + ½ serving of avocado Vegetable soup


Sunday
1 cup milk chocolate + turkey breast sandwich 125g grilled breast + vegetable portion 200g steamed rice + vegetable potion


This diet makes the following mistakes:
It is not personal, because everyone has different energy needs and a different daily routine.

It would be difficult for you to take it to the individual context.
It limits you because the options it tells you to eat are square.
It does not take into account your tastes and preferences, so you have little adherence.

It focuses on the result and not on the process of change. It does not generate habits.

Portions are poorly designed. They are very strict and impossible to follow.

The effect is temporary. Weight loss is only achieved during the diet, once you return to your “normal” diet you also retake the initial weight or even gain weight (rebound effect).

Diets are unnecessary, are not permanent and are a useless strategy when looking to maintain long-term results.
In the second article, we will see some myths of very interesting diets and that I have always thought so even before doing this research and see this article.

NOTE: REMEMBER ALWAYS BUT ALWAYS CONSULT WITH YOUR DOCTOR, I AM NOT A NUTRITIONIST, I JUST DO RESEARCH AND LISTEN TO MY OWN DOCTORS.
