1. Potato chips and French fries
Most busy Americans can agree that a bag of potato chips and a soft drink can easily replace lunch, however, in health terms, this is completely untrue. Don’t swipe a healthy meal with french fries or a bag of potato chips!
Despite the fact that french fries are have been linked to hypertension, they are also high in fats, as well as low in proteins, which are the primary sources of energy. In general, high-carb diets will always make you feel sluggish.
Rania Batayneh, MPH, a nutritionist based in Beaverton, Oregon says that when you eat carbs, your blood sugar levels go nuts, and, as a result, your body will most likely release insulin in order to get rid of the white stuff from your bloodstream.
This process can trigger what we call ‘afternoon fatigue.’ So, unless you have the afternoon free, it’s a good idea to steer clear of potato chips, french fries, and anything that can cause your blood sugar levels to spike.
