What the Fork: SlimFast
Happy 'what the fork' Friday! I can't believe this shit is still around. The ingredient list makes me cringe. See it below.
Conventional milk- meaning it came from cows fed GMO, pesticide sprayed grains that were pumped full of hormones and antibiotics.
Sugar- not only is sugar basically as addictive as cocaine but if you're trying to lose weight this is the LAST thing you should be consuming
Canola Oil- this is an inflammation inducing oil that offsets the balance of omega 3s to omega 6s in your body.
Hydrogenated Oils- How ironic and incredibly insane that one of the ingredients most blamed for the obesity & cardiovascular disease epidemic is in a weight loss drink. This oil is better known as "trans fat" and the FDA is forcing food companies to drop this oil out of their "food" products.
Soybean Oil- more GMOs & another inflammation inducing oil.
Carrageenan- a non nutritive additive that is linked to intestinal disrupt
Sucralose - better known as Splenda was recently announced as no longer a "safe alternative" by the FDA
Ace K- another chemical sweetener •
If you are seeking health and/or weight loss, processed "food" like products with ingredients your body won't recognize is not the way to go. Real Food wins. Always
