Enter any grocery store, Walmart, Target or any place that sells food and we are reminded to eat healthier foods and to take better care of us.
For many people, that’s a tall order because they don’t know how to or what to eat because they are confused.
Inviting and colorful food labels frequently mislead consumers about their food content and nutritional value.
“Fat Free…Low Calorie… Reduced calorie…Whole Wheat…Wheat…Gluten Free…Sugar Free and more”
On top of that, food manufacturers deceive us even more with pictures of fruit like plump, ripe blueberries supposedly added to chemically processed waffles. Ugh! I just can’t!!
No wonder folks are confused!
So if you’re trying to make smarter food choices, what the heck are you supposed to do? Read and educate yourself and….. Drum roll…
Eat fresh fruit and produce, drink water, and reduce the amount of processed foods that you eat.
Take advantage of every opportunity to read up on the subject; information is everywhere! In addition to reading articles in your local newspaper. Follow blogs, fitness and health magazines online. The information is there, you just have to read it.
The Vitamin store offers free magazines to their customers such as Life Extension, Muscle & Performance and Amazing Wellness. All provide resourceful information that will change the way you think about food and fitness.
Check out this great article I found from a board I follow on Pinterest. It clears up a few misconceptions about so-called healthy foods.
