The Pretzel Blues

Wondering if you'll ever be able to eat pretzels again? While it's true that pretzels are made from unhealthy, refined flours, there's no reason why you can't enjoy them as a rare treat.

For many years, pretzels were an extremely popular low-fat snack. Many people saw the low-fat label as a license to eat as many pretzels as they wanted.

The problem is, pretzels are made from refined flours, which encourage cravings. Cravings lead to overeating and eventual weight gain. So, as with other refined flour foods, you're better off avoiding pretzels as much as possible.

I hate food cravings don't you?
If it doesn't nourish your soul,
Don't Keep it.
