A healthy diet is essential for losing weight, developing a healthy fitness routine and maintaining good health. However, many foods that are considered “healthy” actually contain a lot of fats. That’s why it’s important to know, or at least have a kind of reference point or list of fatty foods.
Did you know?
Around 90% of Americans consume more than the recommended amount of daily sodium levels.
These empty calories, such as sugars and solid fats, contribute to 40% of our total daily calories. Being more educated on what you are putting into your body is the first step to starting a healthier lifestyle. Some small things you can do:
- Make sure to read the food labels when you are at the grocery store.
- Do your own research on healthy snack and meal options.
One tip is to eat fresh fruit and vegetables instead of the processed or bottled versions of them.
