15 Dangerous Things Nutritionists NEVER Eat – And Neither Should You
This is perhaps one of the most popular treats in our country – and for good reason. Doughnuts are soft, tasty, colorful and come in such a wide variety of flavors that you just can’t say ‘no…’ although you should.
Jamie Logie, personal trainer, nutritionist and wellness coach, explains that most doughnuts on the market are made using refined white flour, which is also often genetically modified.
This type of flour can be very dangerous because it brings an instant spike in your blood sugar levels; combine it with the overwhelming amount of sugars and you’re in for a sugar rush that can seriously damage your health and digestion.
On top of all of that, doughnuts are deep-fried using oils that have probably been used many times before. This process has been long known to increase the risk of clogged arteries and cancers.
