Another easy way to slim down is to only buy healthy foods when grocery shopping. That way the only time you consume less healthy or processed foods are when you are at a friends house or eating out. When at the grocery store here are a few tips to follow when trying to decide what to get when you are grocery shopping.
1. Check the ingredients list
-The shorter the better. When buying dairy one great brand is Daisy since its ingredient lists are by far shorter than other comparable products. Also watch out for added sugars such as words like sugar, cane sugar, cane juice, sugar alcohol and many others.
2. Check the Nutrition Label for no trans fats as well as lower saturated fats.
3. Shop the perimeter of the store.
-This is generally where whole foods (not processed) are kept.
4. When shopping for grains try to get brown rice, quinoa, steel cut oats, or sweet potatoes (for a less starching carb alternative to regular potatoes).
