For the past 50 years, we’ve been sold the idea that diet sodas are the healthier alternative to our favorite carbonated, sugary drinks.
Unfortunately, it’s been proven that this is not the case. A study conducted by the University of Texas at Austin that followed over 700 adults over the course of 9 years, found that those who preferred “diet” sodas, as well as other low fat, no fat, “healthy” alternatives to everyday foods were actually less healthy than those who reached for traditional snacks.
But, it gets worse. According to Dr. Amy Lee, a bariatric physician and obesity medicine specialist, there are three claimed “health” foods that are commonly consumed in the United States – and one ingredient that is largely marketed to our children – that are banned in many other countries; including Australia, China and most of Europe, for the risks they pose to human health.
“If you’ve ever found yourself addicted to carbs and sweets, this is probably why.” Explains Dr. Lee, as recent studies have shown that up to 80% of the American population could be hooked on this added ingredient.
The good news is that you don’t have to spend thousands of dollars on supposed “quick fix” weight loss products, because Dr. Lee also discusses four natural ingredients for digestive health and weight management that can be found in many organic grocery stores.
“Many people are amazed how kicking just a few things from your diet can make your bathroom habits more regular, clear up your skin and give you incredible amounts of energy.” Says Lee.
Dr. Lee further explains the difference between crash diets, fad diets, and popular cleanses, as opposed to her recommended ‘lifestyle approach’ to weight loss.
She has since shared her findings in the presentation below, which has recently gone viral around the world.
“If you’d like to watch your weight get lower and lower each and every day, give your body the best chance at lasting weight loss that makes you feel great about the way you look, and still enjoy your favorite foods, then this presentation is for you.”
