Real Foods Produce Positive Outcomes
For the past several years, you’ve tried nearly every trendy diet to hit the market. Some of these diets required you to eliminate entire food groups. Others instructed you to consume only one or two types of foods daily. You still become slightly nauseous when you remember all the pre-packaged weight loss foods that you had to purchase and eat.
While you may have initially dropped a few pounds by adhering to the strict rules of some of these programs, you weren’t able to sustain your weight loss. If you can relate to this troubling situation, you’re not alone. Fortunately, by re-educating yourself to eat real, delicious, and nutritious foods, you can realize your dream of losing weight and keeping it off forever.
Whenever you visit your supermarket, you might become enchanted by all of the food products on the shelves that claim to be healthy. For instance, a box of chocolate chip cookies might contain a bright label highlighting its fat free status. Unfortunately, this same box of cookies is likely loaded with waistline expanding refined sugar and flour.
If you’re desperate to lose weight, steer clear of processed foods, even those that claim to be good for you. Instead of filling your shopping cart with boxes, bags, and bottles of processed treats, complete most of your shopping in the peripheral sections of the grocery store. These areas of supermarkets typically contain real, healthy foods such as:
- Fresh vegetables
- Fresh fruits
- Low-fat dairy products
- Lean meats
Whenever your favorite fresh vegetables and fruits aren’t available, consider looking for frozen options. Frozen vegetables and fruits, unlike canned ones, pack a nutritional punch. When shopping on the frozen foods aisle of your supermarket, look for items void of added, unnecessary ingredients. Stay away from frozen foods containing calorie laden sauces and blood pressure inducing sodium.
If you need help revamping your diet to include real, healthy foods, consider scheduling a free consultation with a caring professional at the Metabolic Research Center.
