The so-called “American diet” doesn’t have a reputation for being the most healthful.

But just how terrible is it? A new study revealed some disturbing information.

According to new research published in the online journal BMJ Open, “ultra-processed” foods make up more than half of all calories consumed in the US and contribute almost all of our added sugar intake.

In case you are wondering what the study authors mean by “ultra-processed foods”, here’s how they define them:

Ultra-processed foods are formulations of several ingredients. Besides salt, sugar, oils, and fats, they include substances not generally used in cooking, such as flavorings, emulsifiers, and other additives designed to mimic the qualities of “real foods.”

Ultra-processed foods include mass produced soft drinks; sweet or savory packaged snacks; confectionery and desserts; packaged baked goods; chicken/fish nuggets and other reconstituted meat products; instant noodles and soups.

They found that ultra-processed foods comprised almost 60 percent of the total calories consumed, and 90 percent of the calorie intake from added sugars.

Yes, this is as bad as it sounds.

    If we truly are what we eat, we are junk food, by and large.

    • Which makes us safe from most predators which won’t eat junk food.

      • berrybestfarm

        Thanks for making me snort my coffee. No wonder the coyotes and wolves I live with wont come near me.

        • Coyotes and wolves have always preferred more meaty prey. Humans are largely bags of fat.

          • hyperzombie

            Speak for yourself.

  • Everything we eat is 100% chemical, just like everything else.

    • Westside

      Wow very profound! No worries guys everything is chemical. What the F
      is your point?

      • Having heard thousands of commercials and individuals refer to the absence of that which constitutes everything, I wanted to preclude the idiocy entering into the dialogue. I hadn’t anticipated your ignorance of those comments and inability to perceive the approaching idiocy as a consequence. I hadn’t planned on making a point, but your obscenely expressed curiosity should be satisfied.

  • jbstoner43

    This is what capitalism create, a system of cheap products with maximum profit.

    • hyperzombie

      Capitalism produces food that people want, don’t buy it if you don’t want it.

      • jbstoner43

        Even if you buy healthy, there are cases that the food isn’t all that great as well. We are being doped by Monsanto foods and the government. Its all one big monopoly.

        • It is pretty much impossible to buy healthy because the vast majority of our food is grown in soil which has been long depleted of trace nutrients without which health is manifestly impossible. Since the depleted food is fed to the animals that those of us who are carnivorous eat, they are less healthy than they could be. Having gone over and over these facts over several years of nutritional education, much of it autodidactic, I have assumed a diet where the protein and most of the fat comes from meat, and most of the nutrients come from supplements. Having added fennel and celery seeds, two natural anti inflammatories, to my supplements, the pain from a pinched nerve in my back, that two chiropractors had tried and failed to resolve, is gone. The only vegetable that I consume in significant quality is broccoli, and I only eat the florets.

      • Westside

        Most people buy food based on price. The free market is a myth, sorry bro.

        • hyperzombie

          Yes, but you dont have too. Free market.

    • Reverend Draco

      This is what government interference creates – making phake phood cheaper & more readily available than real food.

  • NonYo Business

    Organic food is the fastest growing food type market.

    • It is a shame that the vast majority of it is grown in the same horribly depleted soil that the vast majority of our food is grown in, minus the trace nutrients that would make organic worth the extra time, money, and effort invested, or wasted, in and on it.

      • NonYo Business

        Says the supposed “expert”

      • hyperzombie

        How many soil tests have you done? And what is it depleted in?

      • J. Randall Stewart

        Do you know about balancing manure or compost so there is not too much P or K?

        Did you know that if too much K is available, some plants (ie:alfalfa) will take up too much of it, and the feed will possibly cause problems for the animal?

    • hyperzombie

      Depends where you are. Many places in Europe Organic sales are falling.
      In North America “Gluten Free” and Non GMO are growing faster.

  • way2inform

    J. Crow’s lugols potassium iodine, cold pressed organic coconut oil, some zeolite powder, oil of oregano, lots of sodium ascorbate powder, multi vitamin and no fast food, wonder bread, chicken nuggets etc and you’ll be fine with plenty of exercise and water. Just don’t gorge on grocery store and corporate restaurant shit 5 days a week and you will be ahead of the curve. I drink locally brewed beer daily and smoke an occasional herb and I’m never sick. It’s not rocket science. Little debbies and mcdonalds/ jack and box are not food. They are poison. They might as well be meth. Why are we so dumb???? Oh thats right, because our parents are dumb and taught us our consumption habits. Who raised our parents? Baby boomers…

    Baby boomers where living the real american dream. They flourished as the shadow gov took hold behind the scenes. As they raised our parents in their 2 car garage houses in the suburbs on factory wages this insidious creature took over. There was no immediate threat, and if there was, there was no internet for us to communicate through. SO, as the baby boom happened after ww2 and the american dream flourished our parents where indoctrinated into this amazing land and ideology of america is the best of the best. When things turned south for everyone, baby boomers and their children couldnt see the failing state that coddled them so thoroughly as anything but beneficial, godlike almost. America and its gov could do no wrong. The fix was in and now we have to deal with these old, out dated naive generations who cannot possibly fathom their gov. Doing anything against their own well being. As bob dylan sang – your old road is rapidly fading, please get out of the new one if you cant lend a hand, oh the times they are a changing

        Definitely. I live in a state where it’s free and legal and easy to consume. That being said, as i was thumbing my phones keypad to try and make sense of my point i was too stoned to edit enough to have hopes of it being a cognizant, rational point.. BUT!.. i had already spent the time typing it out and even if the aforementioned thought or theory wasn’t properly expressed, i felt it was passable.. in my herb inflated mind, thank you

  • Rachel Flanagan

    Not my diet, I’ve been off the industrial food tit for almost 5 years.
    I won’t even walk into a super market, nothing but toxic trash. The fruit section smells like plastic.
