As a rule of thumb, never trust the claims on the front of a food package. Claims like: heart healthy, whole grains, or fiber-filled are never reason enough to purchase the item.
You see, the real truth about a packaged food item is hidden in the ingredient list on the BACK label, not in the bold claims on the front.
Scan that ingredient list for high fructose corn syrup, corn syrup, sugar, hydrogenated or partially-hydrogenated oils – if the food contains these items then rest assured that it’s not healthy and should not be eaten.
Here’s an easy way to live healthier: don’t drink calories. Liquid calories are sneaky. You don’t get that full feeling like with solid foods, but you’re still taking in tons of calories. Avoid drinks like: regular sodas, smoothies, juices, sweet coffee drinks, hot chocolate, milk shakes, and alcoholic beverages. Drink plenty of water instead—you’ll lose weight and feel great.
t’s time to get beach ready! Here’s what you need to know in 3 simple steps:
Step One: Cut out the junk.
The best way to do this is to start by purging your kitchen. Get rid of sugary, processed and fat-filled foods. Once the junk has been cleared out don’t buy any more of it. Remember that your beach ready abs depend on what you eat – don’t eat junk!
