Absolutely not! I haven't had fast food in 3 years. I kid you not! I mentioned this in another blog entry. Some one said to me that we shouldn't try and eliminate it completely from our food intake A little every now and then is OK. Really? Hmmmmm......
I don't think so.... I look at it this way, we quit smoking because it's bad for us. We are constantly trying to eliminate unhealthy food and substances from our lives. And we are constantly looking for healthier foods to eat.
Why shouldn't we eliminate fast food from our diet? I did some looking and I found the ingredients that are in fast food.
The results should shake you up....
Here's what I found on the website that I am giving a link to so you can look somemore.....
Here is just one example of what McDonalds put in their foods. The unhealthful ingredients in McDonalds’ Chicken nuggets (straight from the McDonalds’ web site) include:
bleached wheat flour (nutrients removed);
food starch-modified (likely genetically-modified);
partially hydrogenated soybean oil and cottonseed oil with mono-and diglycerides, (trans fats);
Prepared in vegetable oil (Canola oil, corn oil, soybean oil, hydrogenated soybean oil) (trans fats);
TBHQ, tertiary butylhydroquinone, a petroleium dervived product;
Dimethylpolysiloxane added as an antifoaming agent (a form of silicone used in cosmetics, and Silly Putty).
PETROLEIUM DERIVED PRODUCT?
ANTIFOAMING AGENT?!!!! USED IN COSMETICS AND SILLY PUTTY!!!!!?
I feel ill just reading that!
This is just the beginning.
