Your diet plays a big part in the health of your spine. If you have back pain, here are some foods you should avoid eating:
- Sugary foods: Sugary foods can trigger inflammation in your spine and can lead to weight gain. Foods with artificial sweeteners should be avoided too because they can also trigger inflammation.
- Processed corn: Corn is usually good for you, but not when it’s processed. Processed corn can cause a spike in insulin and inflammation.
- Red meat: Red meat is good for you, but you shouldn’t eat a lot of it because it can cause inflammation.
