10 of the Worst Inflammatory Foods to Avoid

4. Refined grains

When grains become refined, they have had most of the germs and the bran removed, and along with this, many of the nutrients and vitamins. Due to the extent of which refined grains are used in the food industry, you will find them in products like: white flour, noodles, pasta, and pastries. When they are consistently eaten, they can bring on the effects of heart disease, diabetes, and cancers. A study was conducted by Moyer on the buildup of belly fat and how it affected stress in overweight women, where the incorporation of refined grains was also studied.[4]

What to do: Swap to whole grains, these are considered to be a much healthier option, as they contain higher levels of fiber which can help stabilize your blood sugar levels. To add more whole grains to your diet, include oatmeal for breakfast, whole grain bread in place of white, and whole grain pasta and side dishes like brown or wild rice.
