When not considering weight loss, there are few things that are more refreshing to me than eating fresh piping hot corn on the cob, with plenty of butter and salt. It is such a refreshing and healthy tasting treat. What could be wrong with that you might ask?

You may be surprised to learn that three foods make up the bulk of the adult American diet, corn; wheat and soy make up about 67% of the daily caloric intake. The problem is they should only comprise about 5-10% of your total diet.

This imbalance in our diet is creating massive health problems associated with obesity, and the primary culprit in our diet hindering weight loss is these 3 foods.

It should come as no surprise that many are coming down with allergic reactions and severe intolerance for wheat, soy and many times gluten.

Our digestive systems weren't designed to handle this massive amount of:
High fructose corn syrup.
Soybean oil
Soybean oil (hydrogenated or plain refined)
Soy protein
Refined wheat flour

Possibly hundreds more including soy lecithin, wheat or cornstarch, mono or diglycerides and many more.

Think about your diet, does it include breads, marinades, soda, salad dressing or ketchup? Each of these contains massive amounts of high fructose corn syrup.

Now here is another shocker. Farmers are feeding cattle mostly corn and soy even though there systems are not designed for it. It puts way more fat on farm animals which brings the farmers more money when the cattle are sold at the market.

Omega 6 to omega 3 ratios are altered and become unhealthy when farm animals are fed a steady diet of soy and corn. If that were not enough they will also experience a drop in CLA, fats that come naturally to grass fed cattle. This is also a fact for farm-raised fish, salmon and chickens.

This means that even when you are consuming healthy foods such as chicken, fish or beef you are still leaving your health at risk due to the soy, corn fat buildup.

If you are truly going to affect weight loss and get a handle on our health, then it all starts with the grocery cart.

If you want to lose weight the formula is simple, purchase healthy foods and leave the processed foods alone. Instead of eating junk food every day add meat from free roaming animals, seeds, nuts, beans, fruits and vetgetables. Save the unhealthy stuff for a cheat day!

Limit junk foods to 1 day a week, cheat day.
The best source of carbohydrates is fruits and vegetables instead of grain.
Tomato sauces contain soybean oils and HFCS, avoid them. Instead, choose sauces created with olive oil.
Unhealthy canola oils should be off the menu as well.
A good alternative to corn chips would be a veggie stick and guacamole.
Reduce your cereal, bread, and pasta intake by having them on your cheat day.

No one is perfect, and your diet may never attain that status either. Nevertheless, you can enjoy weight loss if you will get your percentages of soy, corn and wheat back to a healthy level. This is absolutely key if you wish to lose weight and be healthier.
