Shopping Secrets for Losing Weight

Shopping right can mean the difference between weight loss and packing on even more pounds. Following are some simple tips that can help you avoid buying foods that look healthy but really aren't.

Focus on Fruits and Vegetables

You can never go wrong eating plenty of fruits and vegetables. They should make up a large part of your diet. You can find seasonal fruits and vegetable for sale at just about any type of the year at local farmer's markets, grocery stores and supermarkets.

Stick to Low Fat Proteins

Buy lean meats that do not have added ingredients. Chicken breast, fish and turkey are all good options. Beans are great as well but avoid the canned variety and cook your own from scratch. Tofu is great as well although it may take some time to get used to the taste.

Go for the Whole Grains

Whole grain foods that do not contain added ingredients are excellent sources of carbohydrates. These foods are also rich in fiber, which means you will feel satisfied without eating too much. Brown rice, whole wheat bread and plain oats are all good choices.

Avoid Sweetened Foods

Many sweetened foods are labeled as being "healthy" or "low fat"; however, this does not mean they are good for you. There are literally dozens of different names for various types of sugar and just about any type of sugar is bad for your body when consumed in excess. Skip the so called "healthy" breakfast cereals, pastries, energy bars, cookies, yogurts and beverages as they will work against your weight loss efforts.

Make a detailed, healthy shopping list before you head out the door and stick to it. Planning in advance and choosing only the right foods will help you lose weight more effectively than any crash diet.

I love everything about this place. Faculty is amazing and friendly! My fiance, mom, and I have been going here since March 6th 2013 to lose weight for the wedding in April 2014. My fiance has lost over 50 lbs, my mom has lost 40 lbs and I have lost 50 lbs.
