Kick the Ultra-Processed Food Habit

By and Thursday, 29 August 2019 12:00 PM Current | Bio | Archive

Nick Saban, the famous football coach for Louisiana State University and the University of Alabama (his college coaching record is 232-63-1), found that focusing on “the process” was the key to success.

“Don't think about winning the SEC Championship ... think about what you needed to do ... in this moment,” he said. “That's the process: Let's think about what we can do today, the task at hand.”

Let’s think about ultra-processing, which is something that happens to much of today's food.

Let's also think about the unhealthy ingredients and the task at hand: the process of avoiding unhealthy foods you love but that don't love you back.

Researchers from Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine analyzed more than 230,000 food products and found that 86% of those made by the top 25 food manufacturers were ultra-processed.

These foods, containing added salt, sugar, oils, unhealthy fats, and chemicals used to imitate the taste, smell, and texture of minimally processed foods, increase your risk for cardiovascular disease, memory loss, cancer, and more.

Unfortunately, their prevalence makes them hard to avoid.

Here are three ways you can begin the process of getting ultra-processed foods out of your life:

1. Start somewhere. Add one piece of fruit to lunch and a salad (with extra-virgin olive oil and lemon as dressing) to dinner, whatever else is on your plate.

2. Substitute water, unsweet tea, and black coffee for other beverages.

3. Beware of deceptive packaging. “Fat free” often means added sugar; “sugar free” may mean added artificial ingredients. Opt for foods with as few ingredients on the label as possible, or eat unpackaged plant foods with no label at all.
