Default Ingredients to Avoid

I just need some input, and some of your knowledge.

I've gotten pretty good with SBD, where I know what I can or can't have by looking at the ingredients and nutritional info.

Thus bringing me to my question.. what are some No-No ingredients? Things that as soon as you see them listed as an ingredient, make you put the product back.

I know the obvious ones, sugar , high fructose corn syrup , partially hydrogenated oils , etc. But are there any others that I (or anyone else) may not be familiar with? Just so I can get better at the shopping thing, and totally master this lifestyle.

Thanks in advance for any help

How about:

Corn syrup solids (in my frozen chicken breasts of all places!)
Palm oil - BIG no-no
Coconut oil (actually all tropical oils are bad)
Potato starch - can't remember what this was in.


That's all I can think of at the moment - I am sure there are a ton more.

Have you heard that the Canadian gov't is trying to ban trans-fats?

I say go for it!!

IMHO, if you don't know what it is, don't eat it! We are supposed to avoid processed foods. Yeah Canada on the trans-fat ban!

I avoid processed foods, but I want to learn more so I can understand the diet better.

I wish the US would ban trans fats too, and close Kentucky Fried Chicken, so I'm not tempted

Whoa, Bups! Read that article on the transfats and was just appalled! I'm going through my entire kitchen today and ditching everything I can!
