Food Additives and Obesity

Category: Blog, Videos • Jan 20 2017

Causes of Obesity – You eat pretty good, you exercise some but you can’t lose a pound!  Sound familiar?  Well something is stopping you from losing weight and its not from eating too many fats or carbs.  In fact, it has nothing to do with fats, carbs, protein or exercise.  In this short fun video Dr. Rob explains the connection between food additives and obesity.  Enjoy!


Causes of Obesity- Something Is Making You Fat

Below are the two lists mentioned in the video of foods that are ok to eat non-organic “The Clean 15” and the ones you should only eat organic, “The Dirty Dozen.”
The Clean 15 
  • Avocados
  • Sweet corn
  • Pineapples
  • Cabbage
  • Sweet peas (frozen)
  • Onions
  • Asparagus
  • Mangoes
  • Papayas
  • Kiwi
  • Eggplant
  • Grapefruit
  • Cantaloupe (domestic)
  • Cauliflower
  • Sweet potatoes
The Dirty Dozen
  • Apples
  • Strawberries
  • Grapes
  • Celery
  • Peaches
  • Spinach
  • Sweet bell peppers
  • Nectarines (imported)
  • Cucumbers
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Snap peas (imported)
  • Potatoes

The below two foods are what I call the Dastardly Duo!  EWG states they may contain organophosphates and insecticides, which were categorized as “highly toxic” and of special concern.  I would only eat the below two foods in the organic form.  I might sound like a snob, but I will rarely eat a non-organic blueberry.  There are just too many toxins in them.

The Dastardly Duo!

  • Hot peppers
  • Blueberries (domestic)
