Your gut microflora isn't just sitting silently waiting for you to chow down your next meal.
Cut Out Sugar and Processed Food What is processed food? Here is a common example
Processed Foods Granola Bars
Consider the granola bar, also known as the cereal bar. They are stuffed with hearty grains and packaged in boxes featuring mountains and sunrises. So wholesome!
Too bad granola bars are also loaded with added sugars, which digest quickly and don’t satisfy hunger for long. Despite their healthy marketing image, granola bars don’t offer much in the way of good nutrition. Avoid them for their high simple-carbohydrate count and the long ingredient list filled with difficult-to-pronounce words.
Probably because non-nutritionists do not take added sugars into account, and even our "healthy" foods are full of them. Nature Valley granola bars, for instance, have 11 grams of sugar per serving. Fiber One oat bars have 8 to 10 grams of sugar, depending on the flavor. Too bad
