Healthy eating is more than reading food labels. The FDA labeling laws, unfortunately, do not require labels to be complete, or even accurate!
Because of loopholes in the law, reading labels doesn’t always tell you when oil, shortening or packaging is preserved, when secondary ingredients (like sodium nitrite) contain food dyes, and etc.
Look at the food label listed as an example. Vitamin A Palmitate contains preservatives not listed on the label. Turns out Vitamin A Palmitate may be preserved with a Vitamin E or with a mixture of BHA and BHT. BHA and BHT are made from petroleum.
WHAT’S THE PROBLEM WITH FOOD ADDITIVES?
Many people are sensitive to food additives. That is why so many programs such as metabolic balanceⓇ, The Feingold Program, and the Environmental Working Group are working hard to help you understand what is in your food.
Symptoms such as foggy headed, being accident prone, headaches, joint pain, and skin symptoms can be related to food additives and chemical sensitivities.
NOT ALL BRANDS ARE THE SAME
You need to know EXACTLY which brand name items are okay to use, as the same company often has similar items where one is additive-free and one is not. This is very important. Many people have not found the expected results by just reading labels, never knowing they have been booby-trapped by hidden additives.
Metabolic balance can help eliminate food additives from your diet, detox your body, reduce inflammation, and help you look and feel better.
EAT CLEAN WITH METABOLIC BALANCE
Metabolic Balance® is not a standardized diet plan, but rather a holistic approach to putting your body’s metabolism into a healthy balance and reaching your ideal body weight.
Insulin, the pancreatic hormone, plays a central role in this process. It “opens the doors” to our body’s cells, allowing blood sugar to enter and supply the body with energy. Being overweight has a strong effect on the delicate balance between blood sugar and insulin levels and is thus the root of many common illnesses and disorders.
Healthy nutrition, as recommended by metabolic balance, will stabilize your body’s insulin level, maintain the natural feeling of fullness after a meal and balance your body’s metabolism. The cornerstone of metabolic balance program is a personalized nutritional “road map” based on your body’s biochemistry. If you are interested in finding out more about metabolic balance.
