    All food that comes out of cans or packets is best avoided. Unseasonal food is avoidable. Food products that are highly refined, eg maida and sugar based products are avoidable. Alcohol is to be avoided. Food with ajinomoto, that is, mono sodium glutamata, mostly present in soup powders, chups and chinese cuisine is also not advisable.


    Also avoid strong tea, coffee, colas and chocolates. The stronger they are, more the caffeine in them. Caffeine is a substance that prevents calcium and iron absorption. So, if consumed at all, they are best had between meals when no other food is present for digestion. Between meals, the caffeine will only make you pass more urine which could flush out vitamins B and C with it.
