Eating Whole Foods Is the Best Practice for Weight Loss
Most of us realize there is no quick fix when it comes to weight loss. There are no pills, powders or potions that will keep you from feeling hungry forever, burn calories while you sleep, or replace the nutrients your body derives from whole foods; like real fruits and vegetables, proteins and whole grains. Eating consistently clean and avoiding processed foods, which tend to be high in fats, salt and sugars will definitely help you lose the weight you want to and manage your weight moving forward.
Saying Bye Bye to Processed Foods
In our fast-moving culture it can seem like there is no time for real food that takes time to prepare. So, we turn to fast food and processed foods which can put our body on the fast track to ill health and obesity. At this point, many people, especially younger generations, don’t even know what their life would be like without processed foods. Ridding them from your diet will help improve your health, mood and appearance.
Processed foods are often chemical laden and addictive, with altered tastes and textures we begin to crave. Putting them into our bodies is not only making a choice to fuel ourselves with bad fuel, but we are literally depriving ourselves of the vital nutrients we require.
Embracing Real Food Again
Once you begin to eat more cleanly by ingesting whole foods, it won’t be long before you begin to experience a multitude of health benefits that include:
- You will lose weight and maintaining a healthy weight will be easier
- Your brain will perform better
- Your sleep patterns will improve
- You will build immunity and get sick less often
- Your digestion will improve
- Your skin will look better
- Your hair will be fuller and shinier
- Your Nails will get stronger
Taking a REAL Food Challenge
One way to begin kicking your processed foods to the curb and embracing real food again is with a 30-day R.E.A.L. food challenge for Restorative, Energetic, Authentic Living where you begin eating cleanly.
