Nutritional Biohazards

One of the websites I visit every day is Men's Health. Yes, it's filled with advice I would never follow, often of a morally questionable nature or that requires you to spend such an incredible amount of time grooming yourself that you might as well be gay! But it's fitness and nutritional information is top-notch, and a daily visit gives me several new ideas to live my life.

Here's one y'all (men and otherwise) could use - four nutritional biohazards. They are:

  • High Fructose Corn Syrup
  • Trans Fats
  • Saturated Fats
  • Refined Carbs

  • Do be aware of some caveats, of course. For example, peanut butter is rich in saturated fats, but the good kind (rich in omega-3). But even in peanut butter, there is considerable nutritional variety between brands, and the generic brands are sometimes better. My preferred brand is Kroger, which does not have the crappy partially hydrogenated oils that Jif and some other brands have.

    So live healthy and enjoy your life!
