What Happens When You Eat Quality Food

In the past, I struggled with my relationship with food, resorting to low-calorie, processed options in an attempt to enjoy carbs without the guilt. Despite my efforts, I wasn't losing weight or finding happiness. Ten years ago, I made a significant change by embracing real, quality food. This decision transformed my life, helping me lose over 20lbs, improve my relationship with food, and gain confidence. In this blog, I'll share what quality food means, how it impacts weight loss, and how to incorporate it into your life.

Understanding Quality Food

Quality food is minimally processed, slow digesting, and nutrient-dense. It leaves you feeling full and energized without the negative effects of preservatives, artificial flavors, refined sugars, hormones, and antibiotics found in processed foods.

Examples of Quality vs. Low-Quality Food

Carbohydrates: Opt for whole grains, fruits with skin, and fibrous vegetables. Avoid refined bread, sugars, and candies.

Proteins: Choose lean sources like chicken, fish, eggs, nuts, and legumes. Avoid fatty cuts and meats with added hormones.

Fats: Embrace unsaturated fats from sources like olive oil and avocados. Limit saturated fats found in animal products and avoid trans fats in baked and fried foods.

Why Quality Food Matters

Low-quality, processed foods left me unsatisfied and constantly craving more. Real, quality food nourished my body, reduced cravings, and allowed me to eat intuitively. Combined with portion control and regular exercise, I lost 20lbs and maintained my results.

Incorporating Quality Food into Your Diet

Check Nutrition Labels: Look for unsaturated fats, fiber, and low added sugar content.

Read Ingredient Lists: Choose foods with recognizable, pronounceable ingredients.

Shop at Trusted Places: Opt for fresh produce and consider services like fit-flavors for convenient, quality meals.

Embracing quality food transformed my life and can do the same for you. By making mindful choices, you can nourish your body, reach your weight goals, and cultivate a healthy relationship with food.

Small changes make lasting results.
