What Can I Eat on a Diet?

Woman's Basket Filled with Healthy Choices

For the third straight morning, you become extremely irritable while trying to pick out an outfit for work. Although your closet is packed with clothes, you can only fit into a few pieces. Tired of wearing the same pair of black pants to work multiple times each week, you vow to go on a diet. However, your past struggles with dieting are seared in your brain. If you can relate to this scenario, you might feel like buying a larger-sized wardrobe would be easier than losing weight and keeping it off for good. You may also desperately desire to know the answer to a perplexing question. What can I really eat on a diet?

Retailers’ shelves are filled with books, pills, protein shakes, and various other products promising a magic solution to your weight woes. Unfortunately, many people invest their hard earned money in these offerings only to be disappointed later. Thankfully, successful weight loss isn’t rocket science. To lose weight, you simply need to burn more calories than you consume on a daily basis. You can accomplish this task through a combination of eating the right foods and working out regularly. To launch your weight loss journey, replace the calorie, sugar, fat, and sodium laden, processed foods you eat with real, healthy ones.

How to Shop Healthy at the Supermarket

To help you accomplish "Shop Healthy", purchase most of your food from the peripheral aisles of your supermarket. These sections of your grocery store contain delicious foods such as: 

  • Low-fat dairy products
  • Lean meats
  • Fresh vegetables
  • Fresh fruits

Besides these foods, stock up on nuts, seeds, and whole-grains during your trips to the supermarket. In addition to providing amazing colors and textures on your plate, real, healthy foods fuel your body with the vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients it needs.
