‘Low-fat’ This, ‘Diet’ That and Far Too Many Additives

Oh, please, just leave it alone!

Care for some low fat frozen yogurt, diet cookies, fat free frozen pizza, 100-calorie bags of chips, no carb energy bars and chewing gum with an appetite suppressant in it?  Oh, and don’t forget some pills that will simultaneously make your skin appear more tan and ‘give you energy’ (or maybe a heart attack) to round out the picture.

All of these products were advertised in a magazine I flipped through today whose title is, ironically, to do with promoting health, according to the title of the publication.

If the title of the magazine had been ‘Science Fiction Today’, it would have been far more credible.

Think about it: a bunch of people eating things their leaders tell them they should eat, so they do, without question… and little to do they know that they’re actually poisoning themselves.

Do you really think it’s a good idea to intentionally ingest:

  • sorbitol
  • maltitol
  • Red 40 Lake
  • hydrogenated vegetable oil, or even better, hydrogenated soybean oil with TBHQ
  • fractioned oil
  • acesulfame potassium
  • soybean lecithin (an added bonus- this is often made with hexanes which are sourced from crude oil.  Delish!)
  • hydrolyzed gelatin
  • propylene glycol alginate
  • sodium benzoate 
  • calcium disodium EDTA
  • polysorbate 80
  • pyrophosphate


And this is only a small list of ingredients found in just a few ‘diet’ products whose ingredient list I quickly found on each of the companies’ own websites.

Literal food for thought; are you really comfortable eating something you cannot identify as food?
