2] White Flour
Yes we love our bread and love our naan which are all made up of white flour. But luckily unluckily this white flour does have a very bad effect on our digestion.

4] Fast Food or Junk Food
Fast food is the norm of this century, but has it helped humans. Yes saved a lot of time to prepare food, {Cooking Time: Some Scare facts} but at the cost of what ... Obesity has been the first issue that has been precipitate with this junk food. And with that comes a jargon of diseases and health issues including diabetes. Well it would be nice to avoid to be healthy what do you say?

5] Excess of Everything
And here is my favourite of all which not many would agree to keep on this list of things to avoid. Trends pick in this century very fast...a tweet starts a trend saying that one food is good for health and many simply start following those rules. Food that are healthy are then simply eaten in excess... Do you think it would be right?
Ayurveda specifically speaks of eating everything in moderation. Every food is good in its one way but if eaten in excess can lead to different health issues. One thing that can really lead us to healthy life would be to have in moderation.

What say you? Any Thoughts …..
