FOODS TO STAY AWAY FROM WHEN HEALING YOUR CONNECTIVE TISSUE
Remember that any food that puts your body under stress saps its ability to heal. Processed, refined, GMO, and trans-fat-containing foods should be avoided. Inflammatory foods, such as sugar (especially high-fructose corn syrup and aspartame), alcohol, and caffeine, should also be avoided. These foods are nutritional poisons, and they may be keeping you from getting better.
Reduce your intake of unhealthy foods, such as those high in fat, sugar, and salt. Doughnuts, cookies, fried foods, candy, and regular soda are all examples. These foods are deficient in nutrients that are necessary for healing.
So, treat your body as if it were a car. Your car will run at its best when you use the best gasoline. When you feed your body the "best" foods, it will run and heal faster! The best food is that which grew, walked, or swam in the wild.
