Are You Listening to the Right People?
As a consumer in the digital world, you are constantly hammered with the latest information on what you should be eating and what you shouldn't. But, are you listening to the right people? A lot of blogs and online websites are written by people who just graduated and decided to start their own company. A few months later, they've already become an industry expert. This is not the best source of nutritional information and any fad diet they are pushing will not produce the long-term results.
If it sounds complicated, it doesn't have to be. All you really need to do is manage these basics:
Sensible Calorie Consumption - You don't have to count calories to lose weight. If you check out reputable websites like the American Heart Association or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, they have the latest information about what you should and should not be eating.
Enjoy Cooking for You - It's a myth that eating healthy requires a lot of time in the kitchen. There are simple online Recipes that support healthy eating. A slow cooker can produce healthy meals while you do other things. Plus, many healthy snacks and dishes can be prepared in less time than you spent at the drive-thru.
Ignore the Advertising - Most food manufacturers have a large product marketing staff. It is their goal to entice you, not to educate or inform you. Although the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) requires product labeling, it's hidden on the back of the box. The message on the front, top and sides is high-dollar advertising.
Time Is Not a Valid Excuse - In today's busy world, it is always tempting to reach for something that is ready to eat. Unfortunately, these are processed foods that are often loaded with added sugars and salt. Many fresh fruits and veggies only require a quick wash. Fresh proteins and eggs can be prepared in minutes, so don't use time as an excuse.
As long as product marketing overrides the true science of eating and living healthy, you need to keep it REAL (real foods).
