Many people are mislead about what a “healthy” breakfast consists of. Breakfast is a very important meal, especially when you have established certain body transformation goals that you are working very hard to achieve. But making bad choices when it comes to your first meal of the day can significantly slow down your progress or keep you from reaching those goals entirely.
For those of us looking to get or stay healthy, the challenge is knowing what breakfast options are good for your body. Cereal is seen as excellent breakfast – it’s fast to prepare and can be very delicious. But did you know that choosing the wrong type of cereal could be what is keeping you from your body transformation goals? If you decide to have cereal often, one thing you must avoid are GMO cereals.
GMO, or Genetically Modified Organisms, are becoming increasingly harder to avoid for people who are not actively looking out for it. Although biotechnology corporations will be the first to support the so-called great benefits of GMOs, keep in mind that they have a financial stake in the rest of us believing their claims.
The heavily processed ingredients found in GMO cereals can be very bad for that waistline you are working to reduce but they also have some even scarier risks that you must be aware of in your trek toward a healthy, fit lifestyle. Studies have repeatedly shown that consumption of GM foods leads to an increase in the potential for:
- Accelerated aging
- Altered genes associated with cholesterol synthesis, insulin regulation, and protein formation
- Changes in liver, kidney, and spleen function
- Immune system compromise
Taking note of these potential risks to our health, there have already been many countries that have banned the use and sale of genetically modified crops used to make many of the foods we eat.
