If you’re looking to rot your teeth, disrupt digestion and increase your chance of cancer, then, by all means, keep drinking soda. However, if you want to maintain your health we suggest dropping it altogether. Soda is not only high in sugar, but the acidity of the beverage can trigger indigestion and acid reflux. It’s simply not the best choice in terms of drinks.

Who doesn’t love to indulge in a few slices or maybe a whole pizza? Unfortunately, most pizza is not good for you. Commercial pizza is made from highly-processed wheat flour and the meats are packed full of harmful nitrates. Also, the calorie count in one slice alone could last you a week. If you absolutely must have pizza, we suggest making it yourself

White Bread

Due to the highly processed nature of white bread, which is usually made from refined wheat, it’s best to skip it. Bread contains the protein gluten, which can wreak havoc on people who suffer from celiac disease. If you must eat bread, we suggest going for the whole grain varieties.

Fruit Juices

You would think that fruit juice would essentially be healthy, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. While some fruit juices do contain antioxidants and healthy doses of vitamin C, the sugar content alone should be enough to give you pause. Plus, many fruit juices don’t contain that much actual juice, to begin with.

Honestly, you should just avoid it if you can.

What if we told you that you didn’t have to avoid eating candy bars. In fact, what if one particular candy bar was actually GOOD for you?

Introducing the NEOH Crossbar, the first ever candy bar/protein bar! Made in Austria via a proprietary process, this bar tastes just like a chocolate candy bar but only contains 1 gram of sugar and 90 calories. Even better, it contains 8 grams of protein, making it the perfect snack for after a workout.


Vegetable Oils

Over the past 100 years, the consumption of fats in people’s diets has increased tenfold. This is particularly due to the fact that people consume way more refined vegetable oils than ever before. High in omega-6 fatty acids, these vegetable oils increase oxidative stress in the body which can trigger some serious health problems.

If you’re going to cook with oil, we suggest using coconut oil which is packed full of healthy fats and antioxidants that are beneficial to your health.

While this used to be considered a healthier alternative to butter, recent studies have proved this to be simply not true. Considered to be a highly-processed “pseudo-food,” margarine is artificially engineered to look and taste like butter. There’s absolutely nothing natural about it and the synthetic oils are far from healthy. Honestly, you’d be better of eating real butter than this junk.

While a pastry with your coffee may seem like the perfect way to start the morning, you should be aware that all pastries are very unhealthy. Made from refined sugar and flour, plus packed full of fat, pastries are a one-way ticket to the land of diabetes.

Put down the Danish and go for an egg white omelet, okay?

French Fries

While white potatoes are healthy, the cooking process that turns them into french fries is not. High in calories and packed full of unhealthy fats, french fries are like a shot to the heart. If you really want to eat french fries, we suggest baking them or going for sweet potato fries

Agave Nectar

As people turn away from sugars for healthier alternatives, one sweetener has gained traction for being “healthy” and that’s agave nectar. Unfortunately, most agave nectar is highly-processed, resulting in a sweetener that’s worse than regular sugar. Not only is it higher in calories, but it contains extremely high levels of fructose.

Personally, we suggest reaching for the stevia if you want a healthy sweetener.

Indulge without Guilt

Sometimes you just need to indulge, so why not grab a NEOH bar? This is definitely one food you don’t need to avoid. Delicious, nutritious and filled with antioxidants, this bar is a chocolate lover’s dream. And at only 90 calories with 1 gram of sugar, this bar is the perfect snack after a workout.

Gluten-Free Junk Foods

You’ve probably heard about people going gluten-free before. It seems to be the diet with the most “it factor” these days. However, unless you have a gluten intolerance, there is simply no reason to cut gluten from your diet. Even worse, most people who go gluten-free replace these foods with processed junk foods. In the end, you won’t be improving your health.

Low-Fat Yogurt

While yogurt can be very healthy, most selections in the grocery store are not. Despite being low in fat, they are usually loaded with sugar. Even worse, the natural dairy fats have been removed and replaced with artificial ingredients. Personally, we suggest going for full-fat yogurt that contains live or active probiotics.

Ice Cream

Who doesn’t love an ice-cold bowl of ice cream? Unfortunately, while it may be delicious, it’s definitely NOT nutritious. High in calories and loaded with sugars and unhealthy fats, ice cream is simply one of the worst foods to consume. We suggest going for frozen yogurt instead. Same great taste, but fewer calories and sugar.

Processed Meats

It’s important to understand that while organic, grass-fed meat can be healthy, most processed meats are a health crisis waiting to happen. Loaded with sodium, nitrates, and preservatives, processed meats are known for increased risk of diseases like colon cancer and type-2 diabetes. Just put the bologna down, okay?

Designed With You in Mind

We spend a good portion of our lives watching what we eat. We’re always told what NOT to eat, but what if you could enjoy the taste of the sweets you love with no guilt?

The NEOH Crossbar, the first candy bar/protein bar is the perfect addition to any healthy lifestyle. With 8 grams of protein, 90 calories and 1 gram of sugar it’s a great way to refuel after a workout. Stop avoiding foods you love and embrace this chocolate-covered dream.

You won’t regret it!

Did you know that a single slice of cheese contains the same nutrients as an entire glass of milk? While cheese is often perceived as unhealthy, it’s actually quite good for you. However, processed cheese slices are NOT. Always read your labels and make sure the cheese your purchasing is actual cheese. You won’t believe what they put in some of these cheese items nowadays.

Coffee Creamer

Drinking coffee is not unhealthy. Loading coffee with creamer is a whole other story. You can easily trash your morning cup of java by loading it up with fattening creamer. You’d be better off using whole milk, almond milk or soy milk than that high-fat junk. Skip the creamer. It’s not worth the calories!

Deep Fried Foods

Here’s the deal: anything deep fried is BAD for you. It doesn’t matter what kind of oil is used, if you deep fry it, it’s going to be loaded with fat and grease that’s going to do nothing good for your heart. While having a piece of fried chicken won’t kill you, if your diet is deep fried daily, you’re going to be in for a world of hurt later in life.
