You will probably be surprised by the foods that cause the worst pain and inflammation. Check out this list to learn more!
- 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.
- 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!
- 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.
- 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!
