WEIGHT MANAGEMENT BASICS #14: HOW TO SHOP FOR FOODS – If you are going to eat at home instead of restaurants, you will be shopping for foods to cook at the grocery store or supermarket. Always have a list with you of the foods you need to buy before you go, because the store will try to tempt you to buy Trigger Foods like colas,soft drinks, chips, cakes, and cookies. These are featured in big displays on the ends of aisles. The middle of the store is full of packaged foods you may that are processed with added sugar, fat, and salt like chips, some cereals, and crackers. Learn to read labels. Don’t just throw foods into your shopping cart without thinking. Watch out for frozen meals and snacks like pizza, cheese sticks, and sausages. These use the same strategies as restaurant foods and promise you won’t need to work to make your meal. Read the labels carefully to avoid hidden fats and sugar which are there to attract the most customers just like at the restaurant. Buy only lean fish, poultry, and plant proteins like tofu. Spend time in the Produce Section where you will find low calorie colorful fruits and vegetables. A fruit has only about 70 Calories per 100 grams and a vegetable has only about 50 Calories per 100 grams so feature these in your meals over rice or potatoes which have 250 Calories per 100 grams! For Balanced Nutrition and a Healthy Active Lifestyle, you need to have your Protein-Rich Shakes once or twice a day along with the right foods on your personalized meal plan. So be an active, involved shopper and don’t buy whatever appeals to your cravings. In the next set of posts, I will explain How cravings work- so stay tuned!! #drdavidheber #supermarket #foods #weightlossjourney #protein to learn more go to www.drdavidheber.com and www.herbalifenutritioninstitute.com and read PERSONALIZED.
