If your goal is weight loss, these are the foods that will bring your body into balance, help you shed body fat and support a workout program.
Eating whole foods is so much better for your body than eating pre-made or processed foods. Even though foods that come out of a box have plenty of nutrients, they also contain a lot of other things we don't necessarily want our body to have to filter and process, like additives, added sugar, and the chemical byproducts of manufacturing.
Even if you don't think you're eating "too much sugar" it's often easy to miss how much extra sugar is actually in the foods you're eating from the store. And when your body has more sugar than it needs, it stores it as fat - padding our waistline and making it hard to see the results of our hard work.
The recipes in the cookbooks you'll get are really easy to put together. You don't have to start out by doing a full week of prep right off the bat, or feel like you must do all the foods in the first week to get the benefit. It's always best to start slowly - especially if you're new to this kind of cooking or eating and see what looks good, what calls out to you that sounds fun to make.
A great place to start is with some of the green smoothie recipes. See what looks tasty and make one. Try making 4-5 smoothies a week and use them as a post workout small meal, or medium sized snack. I tend to add protein and some healthy fat in to some of my smoothies to make them more filling and give me lasting energy along with all those awesome phytonutrients and vitamins and fiber in the greens and fruit.
