Processed foods

Postby BigAndy » Sun Sep 30, 2012 10:18 pm

After eating unprocessed foods for a few weeks, I've really noticed how sick processed food makes me feel when I eat it. For example- had a Sargeants vegetable pie tonight. Kind of regret eating it as it was really just gross. As I progress with readjusting my diet to fresh unprocessed foods I'll no doubt come up with some more snack alternatives that don't include frozen snacks. Gross stuff.

Actually,processed foods are one of the main reasons of CANCER. They are the culprit. So as much as possible, do not eat processed foods like hotdogs, bacons, oh and fast foods too!

If overweight people only made one change to their diet and that was to take out processed foods and swap them to fresh foods then that would make a huge difference.
Apart from soft drink I think it's the biggest problem to people's health there is.

Processed food is absolute crap. Really is criminal they manufacture it and it's allowed to be sold. Glad I am able to afford and have the option not to eat it now. :lol:

Same here, regarding processed foods. I've gradually weaned myself off most of them, replacing with whole food equivalents.

For those times when I do want a processed food I either find a product with the least obvious processing, or make my own.

For example, ice cream replaced with chilled natural yogurt. Or if I'm having a hotdog, I'll replace the extruded "meat" product hotdog with a kangaroo sausage (although I haven't yet found a good replacement for the sauce). I make my own oat milk now: rolled oats, salt and a sweetener, sometimes extra bran, blended up and refrigerated. It tastes fine and is less expensive than shop-bought products. The same goes with bread: I generally steer clear of it, but when I get a craving I'll buy the wholemeal boutique stuff from local bakeries or make my own.

And yes, like some of the others here have found, I find there is a noticeable difference when I go on a binge for a day or two on mostly processed foods. Perhaps it's something to do with intestinal flora?
