Canned foods are mostly processed foods. Processed foods are simply foods that have undergone some transformation from their original form. Food processing can range from grain milling through vegetable fermentation to more complex industrial methods used for increasing the shelf-life of the products.
The following three most harmful to fertility are canned foods:
Sweet drinks with sugar
It is estimated that the average American consumes just over 150 pounds of sugar a year, equivalent to 3 pounds of sugar per week (either 6 cups or 773 calories!). However, we often find a lot of added sugar in some unadulterated cans, such as kombucha or fruit juice (because the fruit is not sweet at the beginning).
Ordinary sugar-sweetened lemonades, such as cans that contain high-fructose corn syrup or a similar type of dietary substance, can damage your body by producing excessive glucose/insulin loops, resulting in inflammation and hormonal imbalance.
Remember that one canned sweet-lemonade drinking in a day is associated with:
- 25% reduction in the chance of getting pregnant during the menstrual cycle (fertilization) in women.
- Similarly, male fertility decreased by 33%.
- In addition, drinking only one serving a day was also associated with a 12% reduction in IVF cycles, which led to live birth.
- So if someone is trying to optimize their productivity, start by removing sugary drinks:
• Energy drinks
• Sweet tea
• Coffee drinks
• Sports drinks
In addition to canned beverages, other common canned sources of hidden sugar include:
• Canned fruits
• Dried Fruit
• "Energy bars"
Snack with low or no fat content
But again, simplify it by simply improving your lifestyle - get rid of sweet and savory foods. It may seem like a small step, but it has a huge effect on reducing inflammation and hormonal damage.
Until meat lovers in our community rush, we will not tell you to stop eating meat.
To increase shelf life, we recommend disposing of canned processed animal meat.
Examples of Canned beef containing foods like hot peppers, hot dogs, sausage, spam, and bacon. Compared to conventional beef consumption, increased consumption of plant protein sources (such as beans, nuts, legumes, tofu, and tempeh) is associated with a lower risk of ovulatory infertility and a higher probability of clinical pregnancy and postpartum delivery and IVF.
Processed meat not only has the same risk as conventional animal meat but during processing, it is often loaded with other ingredients such as sodium nitrite, hydrolyzed milk protein, dextrose (aka-sugar), corn syrup, carrageenan, xanthan gum, sodium glutamate, and so on.
These types of foods are naturally addictive because of these supplements, which in our opinion complement the list of causes, but it is better to avoid them.
