Yeah! I know, it’s Christmas and it should be a time to try out a variety of foods. But, You still have to be careful with, what you eat. There are certain types of foods, that are widely distributed during Christmas that can pose a threat to your health. So my advice to you is, if you don’t want this Christmas to be one, that you will always remember because of the health complications you will develop afterwards, please pay great attention for the next few minutes.
1. Cheese Straws
At the top of our list is cheese straws. You may be wondering why this is so. The answer is simple, recent studies have pointed out that the cheese straws are significantly high in saturated fat, which is completely bad for your arteries and taste buds. So the best thing to do is to keep off these things during this Christmas.
2. Advent Chocolates
I know this might be extremely hard to lay off, but just wait till I explain to you all the damage it can cause to your system. Have you ever heard the phrase “As irritable as chocolate” and wondered what it really means, that’s because a bar of chocolate alone can highly increase your craving for more and more of it. A large portion of the advent chocolate is made up of sweets, which contain sugar that can increase your blood sugar level and create a doorway for a potential diabetes and other health complications.
It has been said that this is the most deceptive of all the names given to foods, it is a complete deviation from its name. Those who have tasted it have been reported lamenting that “there is essentially no cake here, just candid fruit and nut-like cracks in a brick of flour”. So if you don’t want to ruin your Christmas this year, just look for something else to eat.
4. Christmas Pudding and Brandy Butter
This is another terrible one, it is heavy, soggy, packaged with raisins and often said to be soaked in alcohol for months before you can eat it. This is just a very long short that you don’t want to try this Christmas.
5. Concentrated Fruit Juice
Concentrated fruit juices aren’t any better, they have been reported to cause significant damage to your waistline. Generally speaking, fruits are very helpful for a healthy skin and good metabolism, but the problem here lies in the ways these fruits are concentrated into juice. In concentrating these fruits, a majority of these companies remove the fiber and a host of other nutritional elements, which tend to reduce the rise in blood sugar and also benefits the body.
