Moment on the lips, lifetime on the hips (and health)!
Learn and put into use our latest rule from the Fortza Fit Rules of Nutrition to get into your best shape yet, and feel your body function at the peak of its powers. These rules support cell health, and this increase your energy capabilities, while decreasing inflammation and acidity. This results in a truly younger, healthier and happier you, and a metabolic system that runs smoothly. Here's the next rule of the Fortza Fit Nutrition Philosphy, rule number three:
We're eating more sugar and flour than ever before. The consumption of cookies, crackers, cakes, and breads has increased 50% in the last 30 years. When you eat a lot of these foods, your body starts to produce excess of insulin. An excess of the growth hormone insulin in the bloodstream, can lead to metabolic syndrome (a precursor to diabetes), high blood pressure, and increased abdominal fat.
Part of the problem is that the processed foods of today, are created in a lab with the sole purpose of making them as addictive as humanly possible. They just add some salt, fat, extra sugar, and synthetic additives to the mix and you get an irresistible snack that will stay around your hips for years. All of these synthetic ingredients, preservatives and "natural flavors" place a heavy toll on your metabolism, causing inflammation, stiffness of the muscles and joints, pale or red skin (inflammation blood circulation).
If that wasn't enough, we have yet another problem that adds to the equation. The pesticides and and preservatives used in the manufacturing and the packaging of processed foods have a negative impact on the endocrine system. These substances have the potential of wrongly activating the estrogen receptors in the body, which can lead to weight gain, irregular menstrual cycles, acne, hair loss, and even cancer.
Don't you think it's time to step away from the cup cakes? We're doing our best to redirect your thinking, so do your part and redirect yourself when you get tot the grocery store. Head to the outer aisles where you'll find the produce, lean meats, and fish. The idea change the content of your shopping cart. Instead of filling it up with boxes stamped with barcodes, you'll be filling it up with minimally the less processed fare, and make it a habit.
To your health,
