I think counting calories sucks!!!! It doesn’t really work–just look around and see the number of overweight people in our country and you will be convinced. As Einstein said, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” So what we are doing isn’t working. We need to really be focusing on the quality of our food. Math and getting caught up with numbers is wasted energy. Ask yourself? Is weight loss really a good hobby? How many of us spend too much time thinking and obsessing over our weight? Use these next few tools at the grocery store this weekend to help you out. Remember that the “Fooducate” app for your smart phone can help you out too.
1. How many ingredients are in it?
2. Is it organic?
3. How much sugar is in it?
4. Does it contain any artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners, MSG, chemicals ETC?
Organic foods are nutrient dense, safer for the planet, and are grown with more care. Forget those nasty free radical causing chemicals that make snacks low-calorie—-Let’s just eat real food folks! As Sean Croxton says–Let’s JERF (a great verb in my opinion)–Just Eat Real Food!
Stay tuned for the big holiday challenge–more to come tomorrow!
