Foods That Will Ruin Your Immune System

This article is a transcribed edited summary of a video Bob and Brad recorded in August of 2022. For the original video go to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ys300tvxPwY

Mike: Today I am doing this podcast solo, and our guest is Jordan. You may know her from our workout videos on our YouTube channel. You may have heard her in the past talking about the ketogenic diet with us. She has a Bachelor’s in exercise science, a Master’s in nutrition, and she is a certified personal trainer. Today we are going to talk about ways to boost your immune system naturally through food and supplementation so, stay tuned. Let us go into some food that we should avoid if we want to boost our immune system.


Jordan: Yes, this one is going to be screaming obvious, or at least hope it is. If it is not, then you are here to learn today, but sugar. That is a huge no-no when it comes to building up our immune system. Specifically, I want to touch on and emphasize sugar-sweetened beverages, and liquid garbage, like soda and juice.


Mike: I have heard it called “carbage” before.


Jordan: “Carbage,” I like that.


Mike: It is a super sugary carb-dense product.


Jordan: It is awful, nothing good about it. Stay away from that. Sorry for all of those of you who love your beverages on the weekends, alcohol is not a great immune booster in case you are wondering. If you are coming down with a cold, do not go out with friends on a Friday night. Not a great combination there.


Mike: Right.


Jordan: I am not coming on here saying you should never enjoy another adult beverage again so long as you live, but I would not be doing you any favors if I did not tell you that it is not great for your immune system. You can decide from there.


Mike: It is a toxin your body must filter out, so it compromises your immune system.


Jordan: You are correct there. It leads to inflammation too, which is not ideal.


Mike: Also, it leads to bad eating.


Jordan: Yes. If you drink alcohol, it leads you to eat the other things that I am going to talk about right now like processed grains that we should stay away from. When you drink a few beers and then decide pizza is a great idea, right?


Mike: Yes, back in the day.


Jordan: Exactly. What do I mean by processed grains? Avoiding things like bread, pasta, crackers, and chips. I am not a fan of whole grains, too, because I get that question a lot. That would be a whole different podcast. I am not going to expand on that because I feel if I did, a half hour later I would be done talking.


Mike: Sure, we could save that for another time.


Jordan: Staying away from processed grain oils, too. Canola oil, vegetable oil, safflower oil, corn oil, and soybean oil, to name a few. These are inflammatory.


Mike: That is what I have heard. It is the way they are processed. Like vegetable oil, people think it is vegetables but isn’t it one specific thing? What is it?


Jordan: Yes, it does not have any vegetable present.


Mike: It is not sunflower oil; I cannot remember what it is.


Jordan: It is, do not quote me on it, but I think it is a combination of some of these oils I was mentioning. I cannot remember exactly. It could be a smorgasbord of stuff.


Mike: Yes, they thought it was a healthy thing in the late eighties, early nineties, and now they think it is not so great for us.


Jordan: Yeah, I hope we all have that message by now, but we will see.


Mike & Jordan: Thanks!
