Inflammation and Your Bacon

Inflammation and Your Bacon

Woman Measuring Waist

If you are beginning the journey of losing weight in Medina, or just interested in changing your nutritional lifestyle, start with your basics!

The American diet is often “PROINFLAMMATORY”, meaning it promotes inflammation throughout the body. It’s high in sugars, flour and omega 6 fatty acids. Items like yogurt, ketchup, granola, pasta, bread, white rice, high fructose corn syrup, tofu, peanut butter, and cured meats like bacon, sausage, and pepperoni. 

Fighting Inflammation in Medina OH

You may be asking why that matters. What risks could possibly take you away from your favorite pepperoni pizza? First, we have to understand what the big deal is with inflammation.

The inflammation these foods cause in our bodies, specifically our gut, is called chronic inflammation. Basically, it’s inflammation that doesn't end but rather constantly lingers at low levels.

When you have chronic inflammation, your body’s inflammatory response can eventually start damaging healthy cells, tissues, and organs. Over time, this can lead to DNA damage, tissue death, and internal scarring.

Because of the damage created over time, chronic inflammation is linked to the development of several diseases, including:

  • Cancer
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Heart Disease
  • Alzheimer’s disease

Second step is to begin being conscious of what things you are fueling your body with. Is it with foods that are nourishing and propelling your body? Or, are they processed foods that are causing your immune system to be in a never ending war with your body?
