Bad News if You Eat Potatoes or Drink Coffee!

paigeduewel No Comments

If you’re a potato or coffee lover like us, then we’re afraid we’ve got some bad news for you…unless you’re religiously buying organic, that is.

You see, as a root vegetable potatoes absorb all of the compounds in the soil they’re grown in.  For conventionally grown potatoes, this means they’re soaking up loads of herbicides, pesticides, and fungicides on a daily basis.

According to the USDA, 37 different pesticides have been found on conventionally grown potatoes.  Seven of these are possible cancer causing agents, 9 are brain and central nervous system toxins, and 12 are possible hormone disrupters.  Even worse, 6 have been shown to potentially cause developmental and reproductive harm!

But it doesn’t stop with potatoes.  In fact, did you know that there’s an ingredient in your daily coffee that could be KILLING your brain?  Truth is, this ingredient is so toxic that the United Nations is considering a worldwide BAN, but the food industry is keeping it under wraps in hopes that you don’t hear about it.

The 4 BEST foods to eat before bed

The 4 Best Foods to Eat Before Bed

Eating before bed is a big-time “no no” for those looking to lose weight. You’ve probably even heard that eating late at night will undoubtedly cause you to GAIN weight…

Well, there’s good news, and that good news is that not every food that you eat past 7PM will be automatically deposited to your butt, thighs, and love handles.

In fact, there are certain foods that you can eat as a late-night snack that can actually INCREASE your fatloss results! The key is knowing which foods to eat, and which to avoid, as the evening progresses.

Here’s a good rule of thumb:

Avoid carbs before bed in favor of slow-digesting high-quality protein.

Carbohydrate consumption causes significant rise in the storage hormone insulin, which also puts the breaks on fat-burning. That’s a recipe for disaster in the late evening hours as your metabolism is winding down, but fortunately, slow-digesting protein isn’t.

Instead, slow digesting proteins provide your body with a steady flow of amino acids throughout the night to help you recover from exercise and maintain your calorie-burning lean muscle as you lose fat.

Here are some pre-bedtime choices:

White Meat Animal Protein (not red meat or fish):

White meat protein sources such as chicken and turkey are great pre-bed meal choices because they digest slowly and have a very low insulin release. These sources also promote the release of another hormone, glucagon, that assists the body with breaking down stored carbs and fat within your body to be burned for energy…a double win! Red meat and fish have a significantly higher insulin response so they’re best to avoid in the evening.

Cottage Cheese:

Cottage cheese is very slow digesting and coats the stomach to be assimilated by the body over many hours. As a protein, it also stimulates glucagon release; a solid pre-bedtime choice. Just make sure you’re using plain cottage cheese, not the flavored varieties with added sugars.

Green Vegetables:

While these aren’t considered a protein, they contain virtually no calories, are high in fiber, and they’re very filling. If you get a late night craving try eating a big bowl of green veggies to completely kill your cravings…a diet savior!

Slow-digesting, Low-carb Protein Shake:

We recommend a slow-digesting protein shake before bed literally every day. As a bed time ritual, it’s a great, tasty way to end the day. After all, who doesn’t love dessert before bed? :) Try blending the shake with almond butter to get some healthy fats in there, and you’ll love this tasty bedtime treat!
