How To Quickly And Easily Spot The Truly Healthy Foods In The Supermarket

One thing that is just as important for your health and well being as working out fully and properly is eating well. Eating well is not a small supplement to your hard workouts—it goes hand in hand with them. If you eat healthy and do not work out, you won’t gain much. However, if you work out and still eat McDonald’s and processed foods every day, you gain even less. Keep this in mind in your everyday life—drink water instead of soda, and eat a whole grain bar instead of a candy bar. Making this type of small change in your life is extremely important to becoming healthier, getting leaner, and feeling better. However, this is not as easy as it sounds. The money that can be made using false advertisement and dirt-cheap, unhealthy products is astronomical, which means that companies will try hard to convince you that their cheap, processed foods are healthy alternatives to real, organic, and healthy foods. Spotting false advertisement and making the right choices is something that you cannot learn immediately, but if you start looking at ingredients and stop just buying the cheapest item (it’s usually the least healthy), you will learn to eat better. And because of it, you will feel better every day. No matter how good a crappy food tastes, it’s not worth how bad you will feel after eating it.

The first thing that you can easily change is where you shop and where you eat. Rather than going to Safeway or another mega-chain store, go somewhere like Trader Joe’s that is a little bit more costly, but that sells all sorts of organic and healthy foods. If you just change where you shop, you will notice a difference. However, there is more you must pay attention to than where—you have to focus on what you’re eating too. When you’re shopping at the grocery store, turn the products around and check out the ingredients on the back. If one product contains things like corn syrup, sugar, and excess fats, and an alternative does not, get the one that does not contain them. One key word to keep your eye out for is organic. If something is organic, the growers of that product did not use pesticides, insecticides, and other harmful chemicals around this product. If you choose organic, you will not be ingesting any chemical that is made to kill cells—and will kill many of your cells as well.

The next thing that is important for you to do when shopping is products removing the healthy part of their ingredients. Egg whites, for example, remove the egg yolk, which is the healthy part of the egg. The yolk is a major source of vitamins and minerals, and contains almost all of an egg’s protein, cholesterol, and fat. If you remove the yolk, you’re taking away all of the egg’s A, D, E, and K vitamins (egg yolks are one of the very few natural sources of vitamin D). Many products, however, remove the yolk and claim their food is healthier—look out for products that include nuts to perform similar tricks, saving them money and costing you health.

Eating right is invaluable to your health. If you keep your eye out for false claims, like “healthier than the real alternative,” and check product’s ingredients and nutrition facts before buying, you will be a healthier person overall. If you buy organic, you will avoid harmful chemicals and support real farmers—not corporations. If you just pay attention while purchasing your food, you will feel better, look better, and be better.
