Fit Tip Tuesday - Eat Real Food

I've been wanting to join on Fit Tip Tuesday for a some time now so I said "why not!?" I'm not a fitness expert by any means but I have learned so much by trial and error and also learning from others.

My Fit Tip today: Eat real food. No processed foods.

All the stuff in boxes, soda, chips, etc, it's all processed crap. That's all it is...CRAP. Why would you feed yourself chemicals? Nourish your body with good, whole foods. I know it's harder than it seems but trust me, once you take out those processed foods you'll feel so much better.

  • Try shopping in the outer edges of the grocery store where the produce and meat is. That's the real food you should be eating. 
  • Also, avoid anything that says it's "low fat, zero calories, etc" those are more likely to have that gunk in it. 
  • Read your labels carefully. If you can't pronounce the ingredient in the ingredient list, don't buy it.

I know this will take some time to get used to and a little time consuming but remember, it's a lifestyle. When you've gotten used to eating real foods, your body will not even want that processed stuff anymore. Your body will adjust and it will thank you later.

  1. Awesome post, Melanie! I'm so glad you linked up! :)

    This is literally my number one rule when it comes to healthy living -- REAL food. Processed food (in my opinion) is more responsible for obesity rates and poor health in the world than any other factor. As soon as someone switches to real food, they can feel the difference in their bodies within days, it's really something special. Your skin glows, you bounce around with energy, and you feel just absolutely amazing, not to mention that you'll shed pounds if you are looking to lose weight.

    Thanks for sharing a great tip!
