In the media of late there has been a number of articles published that I just have to share with you. There is so much information hitting the media on healthy eating, low carbohydrate diets, Ketosis, no sugar, low sugar, reduced sugar and new food products that I want to keep you up to date. To do this I’m going to start to post links to the latest information and articles that I think may be of interest to expand your knowledge.
It doesn’t matter what country you live in, the articles related to studies on health apply to us all. The information you learn about healthy eating provides knowledge and motivation to improve your own health, but will also provide knowledge to teach your children and help gift them with lifelong health and education on the correct food choices. The choices we make as parents for our own health influences our children and how they teach their children.
Here are a list of articles definately worth the read. I’ll be building this list over the coming months. I encourage you to look further into topics that you find most interesting or in my case disturbing as some of the articles listed below will challenge your thinking as the new research often conflicts with what we have been told about food and nutrition to date.
Today’s articles are quite varied. The first is a must read for everyone, even if your not a big fan of the Football World Cup you need to read this article. It highlights the global impact of the current world obesity epidemic by simply reviewing the levels of obesity in adults in the 32 countries that have qualified for the cup. Each are facing growing obesity numbers with Australia coming in at Number 3!!! How proud we should be.
This is a new product launch into Woolworths here in Australia that I thought was worth mentioning. Funky Fields produces a new 100% plant based mince product called “Minced 100% Plant Based” out of the UK. With a fat and protein content similar to meat it promises to cook and handle like meat but be suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
The labelling of this product using meat descriptors has caused a lot of discussion world wide as to the terminology allowed for vegetarian substitute products. What’s your opinion?
We’ll I guess the information in this article is really no surprise to anyone in Ketosis or on a Low Carbohydrate, High Fat diet. Finally an analysis of packaged foods in Australia showing that half of them fall into the category of ultra processed foods, half are discretionary foods, or in other words Junk Food, and only one third have a health star rating high enough to be considered healthy.
I hope these articles expand your knowledge. Enjoy!!!
