When trying to decide on healthful nutrition choices there is so much info, choices, diets, tips etc. that it gets very confusing and overwhelming quickly. Every magazine has skinny recipes, different ideas are trending on the internet and people are still following fad diets of the celebraties. So from Paleo, Mediterrainian, the Shred, grapefruit diet or even carb loading~ What's the scoop?
It is the Soost Outdoor Fit Biz's possition to "Keep it simple." Now of course there are a few rules such as "you can't outrun poor nutrition". While I don't count calories, cals in do need to equal cals out. The best way to follow any set of rules without making your head explode is to eat real food a.k.a. eat clean. The cleaner you eat the better you will feel and better weight will be maintained.
Several things happen when you eat real food:
- Natural food is full of nutrients and fiber. This means that you will stay fuller longer and assist your digestive health.
- It is low in calories, so you can eat and snack without being hungry or feeling guilty. Can you over eat on healthy whole foods--yes you can, but it is less likely to happen.
- Pay more attention to what you are putting into it. If you are looking for a change, then focus on foods that fuel you--give you energy and make you happy about your choice.
- Choose more foods that have antioxidents, phytochemicals and are nutrient dense, while choosing fewer foods that have allergens, irritants and non food substances in them.
