You will probably be surprised by the foods that cause the worst pain and inflammation. Check out this list to learn more!
1. Sweetened Beverages
When you drink a Coca Cola or a Frappuccino, the refined sugars spike your blood sugar, which causes immediate damage to your nervous system. This worsens your pain and interrupts your body’s attempts to heal.
2. Flour-Based Products
Bread, pasta, pizza, cookies, pastries, and waffles all share one thing in common – they are broken down into simple sugars almost immediately in the digestive process. To your body, these foods are basically the same as sugar!
3. Most Fried Foods
In most restaurants and manufacturing plants, foods are fried in processed vegetable oil (canola, soybean, peanut, sunflower, or safflower). Vegetable oil contains more inflammatory omega-6 than any other food! These foods magnify your pain and inflammation tenfold.
4. Sugary Breakfast Cereals
Your bowl of breakfast cereal can contain more sugar than a 16 oz. soda. Don’t be misled by health claims on the box – check the label!
