Our diet has been linked to how we act, how we move, and essentially how we feel. So the question is, why do we feel so different after eating certain foods? The way that our food is made is often what makes us feel the way we do. The nutritious ingredients, or lack thereof, dictate how our bodies will live for the time being. Putting junk food in our bodies may make us feel sluggish, whereas high-packed protein and low-carb foods give us energy and refuel our bodies. When we’re trying to plan out how our food will affect us later in the day, we have to remember that everything is good in small and proper proportions, too.
Do you know how certain foods affect you?
1. Salty and greasy snacks
Munching on a big bag of potato chips seems like a quick fix when you’re looking for a little snack, but in reality, it’s one of the worst choices you could make. The process that companies put your food through makes it near-impossible for it to even be considered part of a potato anymore. Smothered in fatty unnatural oils, greasy and salty snacks essentially block out the mood-enhancing endorphins that your brain works hard to produce.
2. Not-so-sweet treats
As yummy as it may be in the beginning, it’s pretty common to feel sick after you finish that package of sour candy. Many candy products are loaded with sugar, empty calories, and tons of saturated fats, not to mention all of the dyes and other chemicals used to make that sweet treat look so enticing. All of these ingredients offer little to no nutritional value to your body except for satisfying that sweet tooth of yours.
3. No MSG
Monosodium glutamate is a non-essential amino acid that was commonly found as a flavor enhancer in certain foods. Excess MSG can be quite unpleasant for your body after you’ve eaten three servings of your meal. MSG became less popular as a sodium substance after being linked to numbing and weakness that slowly moved throughout the body. While many products avoid the usage of MSG, it has still made its way onto many shelves.
4. Avoid Hydrogenated Oil
Our poor bodies get subjected to a lot of processed food, and one of those processes involves hydrogenation. When food processors hydrogenate oil, they treat it with a catalyst to change the molecular structure of a natural oil -- such as coconut oil -- in order to alter its melting point and turn it into a "fat." This process fundamentally changes the way our body uses what would otherwise be a "good," natural oil. Have you heard of "trans fats?" They're a byproduct of this process and have been linked to coronary disease and other health issues. In moderation, natural fats and oils aren't bad for you, but when they're processed this way? Avoid them at all costs.
Everyone has the craving for flavorful, rich, and feel-good foods, but in reality, they don’t make you feel that great once you’re done with them. Many foods will leave you bloated, tired, and maybe even unsatisfied, which in return will make you unhappy. Maybe it’s not what you eat, but how much of it you’re eating. It’s okay to occasionally indulge yourself with your favorite snacks, but getting in the habit of a daily stop at 7-11 on the way home to pick up a Hershey’s bar is not in your best interest.
