Supermarket Survival Skills No Diet Weight Loss

Moms View Message Board: Let's Get Fit! (Weight Loss Support Group): Supermarket Survival Skills No Diet Weight Loss

Weight Loss without dieting - Yes! Rachel Ray's guest yesterday wrote Supermarket Survival Guide: Eat this not that, The No Diet Weight Loss Solution - Simple Food Swaps That Can Save You 10, 30, 30 lbs or more. He also has a Kids book called Eat this Not that For Kids, Be the Leanest Fittest Family on the Block. (Probably can get in library)

He mentioned many interesting facts for example brand name chickens sold in most supermarkets contain not 2, not 20 but 200% more fat than they did in 1970. Evidently it has to do with what most commercial chicken farms feed them and the fact that they aren't allowed to roam but are restrained.

Another hint was to buy 75% foods from the outside perimeter of the supermarket where the foods are fresh and only 25% from the center where foods are processed, contain extra sugar, food starch, corn syrup and are misleadingly labeled in relation to healthy eating. Buying local went along with the buying fresh because the nutritional content is higher than commercially farmed food.

He also mentioned that serving sizes have been adjusted by 100's of %'s to encourage you to buy more and eat more. He suggested that on processed foods ignore all label info but nutritional analysis and ingredients label. With breads you want as few ingredients as possible and 3% fiber.

There are tons more of good info to save lbs. gained and easy to make a part of REAL LIFE weight loss and healthy living.

wow, what great information you shared !

I know I am guilty of using those inner aisles, Cubscout and Girlscout nights require dinner that I can just throw into the oven, but I plan on starting to use the crockpot for those nights, especially since it's cold (even in FL it's cold right now.)
