The Fat Free War
Snackwell's effect, which was characterized as the tendency to eat more of a food labeled low-fat or healthy than you would have otherwise.

The Fat Free war.

Way back in the day I was one of the casualties of it (like many of us) and thought that consuming fat free foods was the way to be skinny (whole other conversation there) when reality if I had focused on real food it's quite possible I'd have had a lot less gut issues, alas, hindsight is 20/20

During these times, I ate some less than stellar foods when I was younger (not that what I eat now is all perfect, obviously) but looking back at my food journal and choosing not only something as gross as fat free bologna, but not caring at all about what was actually in my food just surprised me.

I didn't know how the ingredients in certain foods impacted your overall health and definitely impact your gut health.

For some context a few of the ingredients present in that fat free bologna and fat free mayo were corn syrup, sodium nitrate (has been linked to development of heart disease and diabetes), soybean oil (holy inflammatory), natural flavors and modified food start (has been linked to allergies, headaches, diarrhea, bloating, other forms of digestive distress and fatigue.)

Bottom line, what you put in your body truly does impact many different parts of your body not just the ones listed above.

If you've fallen victim to this as well, we've all been there! But I've found a better way and I'd like to help you do the same. I created a guide to help you overcome any struggles with your gut that you may be experiencing to help you feel good and enjoy food again! Grab it here!
