Sugar is sweet.
But too much of it can expand our waistlines, rot our teeth and increase the risk of Type 2 diabetes and heart disease so the World Health Organization has new advice: Limit sugars BIG TIME ! The World Health Organization guidelines call for limiting sugars to 10 percent of your daily calories. Based on a 2,000-calorie diet, this means no more than 200 calories should come from sugar. And WHO says reducing it to 5 percent — or just 100 calories in our scenario — may be even better. These cubes may look like a lot of sugar, but remember, lots of sugar is added to the processed foods we eat, including yogurts, condiments and snacks

3 Superfood Seeds to Add to Your Diet Today
Flaxseeds

Nutty-flavored seeds that provide the most nutrition when ground.
Some studies suggest that flaxseed may help prevent everything from heart disease to cancers (like breast and ovarian) that are hormone sensitive. Flax is also quite rich in Omega-3 and fiber.

Hemp Seeds
Similar in taste to sunflower seeds and pine nuts. They’re an excellent source of essential fatty acids and contain all nine essential amino acids, which makes them a complete protein, like egg whites and soy. Plus: Just one ounce of hemp provides 45 percent of your daily magnesium requirement.

Chia Seeds
Chia seeds are tiny black seeds from the plant Salvia Hispanica (related to mint) while they bear a strong resemblance to poppy seeds. Chia seeds are among the healthiest foods on the planet. They are loaded with nutrients that can have important benefits for your body and brain. Despite their ancient history as a dietary staple, only recently did chia seeds become recognized as a modern day superfood.

The 6 ingredients you should never eat!

Not long ago, a seemingly radical idea arrived at the grocery store – the mandatory nutrition information label. Designed to help consumers get a clearer picture of what exactly was in their food, the idea essentially legislated food processors into being more transparent about their ingredients. Instead however, we got a lot of confusion as Big Food found ways to put questionable substances and suspected carcinogens in plain sight, right there on the nutrition label!
1. Aspartame
If it says Equal or NutraSweet on the box, don’t put it in your cart. It’s a chemical sweetener that’s loaded with phenylalanine, which in high doses is a neurotoxin which many scientists believe can alter adversely alter brain function.
2. BHA and BHT
These two similar chemicals are used to prevent oil-containing foods from going rancid. However, they’re known carcinogens.
3. Food Coloring
Designed to make foods more attractive, food coloring has an ugly side: caramel coloring manufacturing involves the use of industrial solvents and carcinogens. Red dye number 3 is associated with tumor development. Red dye 40 and Yellow 6 are closely associated with aggressive behaviors and impulse control problems in children. Stay far away.
4. Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein
Hydrolyzed vegetable protein is a chemically created, flavor-enhancing protein substance that’s similar to MSG, but whitewashed a bit with a healthier sounding name. The problem with HVP is that it contains hidden MSG, so you can still wind up sickening yourself with headaches, migraines, heart irregularities and so on. Two more members of the MSG family to avoid: autolyzed yeast extract and hydrolyzed yeast extract – they too can make sensitive types feel awful.
5. Partially Hydrogenated Oil
Partially hydrogenated oil and trans-fat are essentially one in the same; and most folks don’t realize that a product can claim “0g trans fat” as long as there is less than ½ gram per serving, so if...
