Some of food you think is good food really isn't all good food. It's good food mixed with basically fake food. And guess what? That fake food is bad for you, worse than you think it is. Your body isn't sure what it really is so it just guesses on what hormones to put out to digest it right. So then your hormones get messed up, which messes your body up, which makes you gain weight and or feel bad. So your wondering what food is this fake food in? Just about everything, but mainly processed foods.
Also the chemicals your expose too mess up your hormones and poison you.
I can't put down all the notes from the book because that would be plagerism, but I can give you an overview of what to do to get you nutrition and hormones back on track. Please read the whole book if really want to know everything.
