Holiday Cheer

Bad news for our waistlines and our health

It's that time of year again, good food, good friends and good cheer.
Bad news for our waistlines and our health. The holidays present an especially trying time for most of us. During celebrations we forget about watching our intake and give in to the tasty temptations of the season. The average American puts on between five and ten pounds during the period between Halloween and the New Year. Enjoy the season but don't totally abandon good nutrition and examine food labels carefully. Be on the lookout for turkey or baked ham that has been injected with either broth or hydrolyzed protein extracts. These are code words for glutamate additives that are supposed to boost the flavor of foods. However, they do untold amounts of harm to our body by producing powerful brain toxins that can induce insomnia.
Read labels and avoid glutamate additives by purchasing fresh, all natural turkeys or hams. You’ll get a better night’s sleep and your waistline will thank you.
