5 Ways To Avoid Junk Food & Still Enjoy
Hi KB community,
I hope that everyone is having a great start to their morning!
As always it is my main goal to bring you the most current and valuable information regarding health, fitness, weight-loss and longevity.
Recently I came across a new study that can finally help explain why it’s so difficult to get & keep weight-loss results – it’s not about just having discipline, it an addiction issue.
So read on…
An Alarming New Study
A new study from the University of Michigan has finally confirmed what we’ve all sorta of knew; all that greasy late-night-junk food eating are actually addictive.
We are talking burgers, pizza, french fries and anything else dripping with oil, grease, butter and bread crumbs.
Researchers followed a total of 500 participants in two separate study groups. They found that unprocessed foods with no added fat or refined carbohydrates (expls include: fruits, veggies, quinoa, salmon) were not associated with addictive eating behavior.
We should stay far, far away from highly processed foods — because, as we know, once you pop the “fun” don’t stop — and instead flock to the safety of real, whole foods.
So here are top five most valuable and basic rules on staying away from those addictive foods
- Aim to get 80% of your foods from the produce isle. That includes fruits, veggies, proteins like meats, fish and legumes, eggs and all of your dairy.
- When you have a late night craving- brush your teeth, floss and drink a cup of water. I can almost guarantee that the craving will go away, and your dentist will also be happy.
- Learn to cook! YES ladies, it’s okay to use your stove. You see there are hundreds of ways to make a healthy pizza, a super nutritious organic burger, a low carb all natural lasagna and even pancakes and brownies. Learn how to do this and you’ll never have to compromise – I don’t!
- Don’t keep delivery menus in the house, don’t save your cc info on seamless and do not buy junk foods for the future. Only buy a small portion of chips that you’ll eat today – do not stock up on cookies and breads- just don’t do it.
- Exercise! studies have also proven that anyone that regularly (and I stress regularly) exercises on a program has an easier time fighting food addictions. So get on a training program (sporadic, random workouts don’t counts).
In the end we all want to have a strong, energized and happy lifestyle. We all want to succeed in our goals and also enjoy the journey. I urge you to make great mind-body-spirit decisions without stress, you owe it to yourself and your loves ones.
