Most people hear the word “diet” and cringe. Dieting does not need to be a bad “four letter” word. The reality is that “diet” really should just be a word to describe changing your eating habits.
Most of us choose foods that are not good for us – if only by accident.
Let’s face it. Try and good a “good for you meal” at your local fast food place can be a trying effort. A quick stop at Starbucks or the corner deli can also create challenges for us. The good news is that you don’t need to carry a back pack full of good foods, you just need to know which foods fit into a proper weight loss formula.
For the most part, if you choose “fresh” items you are already on the right track.
Fresh fruits versus processed fruits. Fresh meat vs. canned, etc. etc.
Think about walking down the aisle at a store. Do the items last a long time on the shelves? Probably better off finding another aisle.
Foods that need to be eaten soon (or they will go bad) are a great start. It helps you avoid some of the “processed” foods that contain a lot of extra ingredients that will work against your dieting efforts.
Weight loss is not hard, it is just about making the right choices. Hint: There is a Formula for that 😉
