Foods that should be avoided :

Light Yogurt. Yogurt with artificial sweeteners is not healthy. Plus, regular yogurt is loaded with sugar and carbs. The sweet taste just leaves you craving more sweets. Instead try Organic Greek yogurt with fresh fruit and maybe a few walnuts.  

Soy milk. Soy milk delivers a load of sugar in most cases, and potential negative effects from soy including lowered thyroid function. Soy is one of the main genetically modified crops, engineered so that it can withstand the effects of Roundup. Unfortunately, it doesn’t kill the plant but it does soak right up into it which means you consume it too. Instead try Heart healthy coconut milk or coconut water.  Another wonderful drink choice would be Isagenix IsaFruits and Greens with water.  Together you get more than 30 fruit ingredients, the antioxidant power of eating up to 20 whole fruits with only one gram of sugar, and the nutrition of your daily 5 servings of vegetables.

Flavored Energy Drinks. These drinks cause a spike in blood sugar  because they  are loaded with sugar.  If you are getting the "light" version then you are consuming artificial sweeteners and usually artificial coloring too... instead try water with some Isagenix Want More Energy.  It is a natural energy drink loaded with a premium blend of A,B, and C Vitamins. It infuses your body with essential electrolytes that can be lost due to stress and exercise and boosts energy naturally with no “sugar crashes”

Energy Bars. Sugar, artificial flavorings, soy protein....check the label and you will see many ingredients that can hardly be pronounced. They are adult candy bars. Instead eat an Isagenix IsaLean bar with the highest quality whey protein from New Zealand. One bar is nutritionally a total meal replacement.  

Processed Meats. Are often high in sodium, sugar, and many times nitrites, nitrates, and other artificial ingredients.  

Lowfat Muffins.  Are just another version of cake. Many supposedly healthy muffins, like banana bran, are just high calorie, sugar-packed, unhealthy carbohydrate  choices.  Eating a poached egg and steel cut oatmeal is a much better choice.  Also, Isagenix SlimCakes support your heart and digestive health with 5 grams of fiber from whole oats, inulin, and flaxseed, and are great to have when you are on the go.  

No Sugar Added Jam.  By concentrating the fruit there is still a high amount of sugar, even though it is not added white sugar. Instead spread a little almond butter on  sprouted whole grain toast and top with apple slices. Choosing a piece of organic fruit is always a great choice.

Cereal and Milk.  An unhealthy choice that sets you up for a midmorning blood sugar crash. The best breakfast available is a nutritionally complete Isagenix Isalean Shake.  These shakes are the foundation of a healthy lifestyle.  They help maintain lean body mass. The supercharged trace minerals keep your body running at peak performance.  

So enjoy your food, and knowing that you are doing your body good!
