Surprisingly, there are a number of chemically based foods lurking all over your kitchen. For starters, get rid of anything with the word diet in it. Diet foods are mostly not food at all but chemistry experiments. In order to take out the sugar or fat, more sugar or fat has to be added, depending on the promise of the food. Foods that are nonfat are usually higher in sugar. There are also heaps of chemicals thrown in to keep them semi-tasty. Not only are these foods horrendous for your system (and stop you from losing weight as your body goes into shock mode to process these chemicals), but they’re not even satisfying. Ever eat a diet “food” then crave the real thing before you’re even finished taking the last chalky bite?
