2.  High In Sugars

For great flavor, almost all processed foods are loaded with added sugars, especially the cheap and dangerous high fructose corn syrup. Sugar, when consumed in excess, is very harmful to the body. Sugar, especially white sugar, is nothing more than empty calories. It has no real nutritional value, other than some instant energy, but nothing else. Of course, sugar is high in calories, which means it often leads to obesity.

Eating a diet high in sugar often leads to high cholesterol levels, increased levels of fat in the liver and belly, as well as insulin resistance, which can lead to Type 2 diabetes. Of course, most people aren’t getting diabetes from a spoonful of sugar in their coffee. It’s the processed foods that contain tons of sugar. Don’t forget that processed foods also mean beverages, such as sodas. If you really want to improve your health and lose weight, simply drop processed foods from your life.
