Today, there seems to be a lot of discussion and confusion about eating healthy and dieting and this can be cleared up rather quickly in one easy statement. Do you think you know the answer? Everyone is different.
What may be healthy and good for one person will not necessarily be the best diet for everyone else. You are unique and different from other people. The food that is best for you may not be the best for other people trying to lose weight and be healthy. There are those who do very well on meat and others who do not and the same is said when it comes to carbohydrates. The food that will be the best for your needs will depend on you and your lifestyle.
There is a simple way to figure out what is good and there are a couple of general rules of thumb that apply to everyone. They are “Fresh and Pure.”
This is an easy concept to follow and remember to make sure that all the food that you eat is fresh and pure. Make sure that you listen to your inner knowing and it will assure you that you are eating the right foods.
If you have a craving to eat steak, eat it and if you want fresh vegetables, eat them. When you have an urge to eat fruit, eat it or if you want some nuts or seeds, eat nuts and seeds. When you make a food choice that is from the fresh and pure selections, you will not have to worry about your calories, carbs, fat, cholesterol or anything else because you will be eating food that is good and healthy for you.
So you may be asking yourself what is the meaning of fresh? The definition of fresh food is anything that is not in a can or box. The majority of things that are stored in a can or box are old and dead. The main stay of the food is long gone and it is no longer considered fresh. I am not saying that everything in a box or can is not fresh, but the majority of the time, it is not. Frozen food is usually fresher than canned or boxed food because it does not last as long frozen.
The next question is what does pure mean? The definition of pure is nothing artificial and nothing added to the food including poisons, pesticides or one of the biggest culprits which is refined carbohydrates which is commonly known as sugar. The majority of items that you purchase in a grocery store have sugar added to them. There are even many health food stores that have sugar added to their products. Pure food gives you the guarantee that it is certified organic food which is better for your body.
If a food product can meet the standards of being both fresh and pure, it gives you the satisfaction of having peace of mind that it is good for you and your body. There is not one food that is fresh and pure that will be right for everyone as well as be wrong for everyone either.
There are some people who are better off not to eat late at night, others are. Some people do well at skipping breakfast while others do not. Eating three large meals a day works for some while others do better snacking throughout the day. A lot of people like to have a variety of foods in their diets while others prefer to eat the same foods over and over again. As you can see, it really is different for everyone.
Last of all, it is important to choose foods that you want to eat that are fresh and pure. Listen to your inner self that is telling you what to eat and you will be content. Eating healthy is the best solution for a weight loss solution in your life.
