The Best Fitness and Weight Loss Blog
Wouldn't it be great if everything that you know about food and weight loss were correct?!  Then all that you would have to do to be healthy would be to follow through on that knowledge.  Sadly, I talk to people everyday who are truly trying to improve their health and it is just not happening for them.  Often, these same people are the ones who have all but given up on trying because it seems so hard.

The first thing that you need to understand and buy into to make the switch to a healthier you is that you most likely do not know enough to make that switch right now.  You can make an effort and have some improvement, but likely will just not get that good of a return on your time and energy invested.  It is not your fault but it is a fact.  Every company in the world has a marketing department whose job is to convince you that their product will be or is the best choice for you.  How are you supposed to be able to sift through all of the bell and know the truth?

So, you have people like me who dedicate their professional life to answering these sorts of questions and then getting this information into the hand of the interested.  I would love to be able to tell you that all veggies are good for you, but in many cases the negatives out weigh the benefits.

Foods are regulated by the FDA and Organic farmers are further regulated by the USDA to ensure that the veggies meet an even higher standard.  Here is what they say:

Organic farming may NEVER use the following as they have been show as likely causes of neurotoxicity, disruption of the endocrine system, carcinogenicity, immune system suppression, Parkinson's Disease, infertility in men and miscarriages in women. Tests show that due to the nature of the fruit and vegetable some retain higher percentages of the toxins that we use to try and protect our food crops.  Here are the top 12 worst offenders.
  • Peaches
  • Apples
  • Sweet bell peppers
  • Celery
  • Nectarines
  • Strawberries
  • Cherries
  • Lettuce
  • Grapes (imported)
  • Pears
  • Spinach
  • Potatoes
In contrast here are the fruits and vegetables least likely to retain those toxins.
  • Broccoli
  • Eggplant
  • Cabbage
  • Banana
  • Kiwi
  • Asparagus
  • Sweet peas (frozen)
  • Mango
  • Pineapple
  • Sweet corn (frozen)
  • Avocado
  • Onion
Obviously, now you know that when you have the choice between organic and non-organic produce that you need to choose organic.  Sometimes you don't have a choice so in that case you should try to stick to the least likely food items to retain those toxins.  Remember that things that are toxic to germs, bacteria, insects and rodents are likely poison to you as well, it is just that you mass allows you to metabolize them in low doses much more easily, but many of them have an accumulation effect and can/will cause major health concerns. So make sure that you are using your brain when you are trying to get healthy so that you are really having the positive impact that you want.
