    There's a lot of exaggeration and misinformation in this article. The author should consider doing a bit more research before writing and publishing articles.

    What about the anti nutrients in the bran of grain that block uptake of nutrients and cause inflammation?


    Also nitrites and nitrates...plenty of those found in vegetables. Apparently the original study linking heart positions to nitrates and nitrites its questionable science too.

    There's absolutely nothing wrong w/ white rice post workout. I eat clean but there's nothing wrong w/ sometimes splurging and it can benefit your body. Poorly written

    I will continue to eat my white and basmati rice, thank you. I also prefer sugar substitue in coffee with no guilt. All protein bard are garbage, Quest might be the only exception. And popcorn is a great snack choice for low calories and antioxidants. Bad article.

    The evidence against artificial sweetener is stacked. Aside from that, everything else in moderation is not going to make much of a difference in the long-run.

    Again with the white rice bashing? Ask 2 billion Asian/Indians if white rice is bad for them. Oh wait, they don't have the obesity problem we have here...

    Yeah, I don't read them as much any more because of the declining quality. It's worse than reading Muscle and Fitness.

    I agree! I would argue they also don't have such a mainstream chemical-filled food supply.

    This article is not technically garbage . Many good points on foods to avoid if looking to remain lean and keep hormone's balanced to elicit fat burning. There are always folks in the mix who defy what hoe the average population will respond to eating some of these foods.

    The do not eat list should contain the below or if you must indulge to moderation of course, but to each their own.

    Soy (only due to the processing of soy and "man-made versions out there)

    Margarine. Just use butter (to moderation of course).

    Hot dogs very high in nitrates. A little bacon now and than I think is fine.

    White rice proven time and time again to have been stripped of it's nutrients. I know some defined it but the processing destroys the value.

    White bread (hell even whole wheat should be avoided). Go with whole grain if the choice is to eat bread. (I agree I do like my Italian bread with my pasta meals though.

    Perhaps a nutritional expert could write an article for this title and leave the hippy science out.

    No definitive studies to conclude either way but I have been eating mounds of it since it first came out and I am healthy as can be. :)

    Not a dumb question at all, I drink Coke Zero and Pepsi max on a regular basis, I love the stuff and haven't noticed any detrimental effects from it....haven't gained weight or had any issues with raised blood sugar or insulin and as a matter of fact it's a godsend to me when I'm leaning out or dieting, it literally kills my craving for sweets...the biggest violator in regards to arti sweets is stevia from my understanding.

    Please explain. I hope it's not because of any gluten BS when you don't have celiac disease. I hope it's not just because it's stripped of it's nutrients when you should be getting enough from fruits/vegetables/nuts with a multivitamin for added insurance. I hope it's not because of insulin. Whey raises insulin 7 times higher than white bread and is also lacking "nutrients" yet wasn't on your list. If it's none of those reasons, then please explain why we shouldn't eat white rice or white bread.

    Splenda is not aspartame. Have you ever read how aspartame became legal? I wouldn't take the FDA's word for anything. I still consume it in the whey that I take. I'm not worried about that tiny amount. Anything is fine in a small enough amount. Apple juice contains both organic and inorganic arsenic and people are fine drinking that.

    If I recall correctly, Splenda is chlorinated sugar.

    It boggles my mind how people's logic works (or doesn't work in this case). So, because you've been consuming a toxic substance for years, with no obvious side effects, it's rational to assume that it's safe for consumption? I would have to first question what your definition of "safe" is. I know my definition of safe is something that can be consumed indefinitely without ANY potential harm or side effects being produced.

    If we were to apply the logic some people submit to regarding artificial sweeteners and their "safety", we should say smokers who have been consuming tobacco for several years and have shown no overt signs of damage or illness are logically able to deduce cigarettes are safe, right?

    It would be illogical to make this sort of claim--especially with the amount research and evidence showing the correlations between tobacco and health troubles, right?

    What exactly is the difference again?

    If nitrates are to be avoided then carrots, radishes, beets and lettuce need to be avoided as well.

    Duo what can you consume indefinitely without ever having harmful side effects in all circumstances? Safety is relative....

    I don't think its chlorinated rather a diffidence molecule in the opposing racemic form. So the gut first converts it to sucrose then breaks it down for a lowered GI level and lower calories due to the additional energy needed to metabolize it. Yeah Splenda isn't aspartame. Sorry.

    I don't trust the FDA for anything anymore. Money grubbing politics. Not just messing with your food choices but compromising your healthcare.
