Olestra Side Effects

For the past 5 years I was Ms. Super healthy workout chick. Then life threw me a wrench and my health watching slowly went down the tube over the course of a year. Then I met Joe and ate the way he ate. The way most people eat, i'm guessing. I don't know because I ate like a super hero. If you are what you eat I was a Tuna and some spinach. No butter, no salt, no bread. 

Now i'm all american Satine... and eating this way makes me feel like crap. 

So, i'm back to shopping smarter. That means less processed foods. More veggies. Cutting out High fructose Corn Syrup and MSG. Watching the amount of salt in my food and definitely not adding any extra salt. But what about these potato chips. Lays Light. 1/2 the calories and Fat Free~!

How? - OLESTRA.

hmm... This is what I found out about this Additive: It gives you Anal Leakage. Not so bad for a side effect. Could cause cancer. Could cause heart disease, instead it promotes bowel movements. HA!

The only issue i'm really having is that it leaves a weird filmy after taste in my mouth that makes me want to brush my teeth really bad. Maybe Lays is in cahoots with Colgate. Nothing is ever as it seems.

Eat your Veggies.
