Cheese, bacon, butter, nuts and ice cream, now what if I told you they didn’t make you fat. Well ok they do make you fat but only if you gorge on them and do not eat any of the accepted healthy foods and never exercise.
Potatoes are a good source of energy, but the trick here is to be careful about what you put with your potatoes. Baked potatoes and baked beans are a good combination but baked potatoes and cheese are not. Use your common sense when choosing your potato topping. Nothing creamy or fatty – or you’ll end up gaining weight!
Unsaturated fats such as monounsaturated and polyunsaturated are considered to be much healthier choices than saturated fats and trans fats. Some unsaturated fats even lower cholesterol levels and may reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.
Nuts are a great way to curb your hunger because they are loaded with protein, reasonable fiber, and good fats. However, due to their high fat content, it is best to eat a proper portion of nuts prior to becoming incredible hungry. Eating nuts when you feel as though you are starving, could lead to over eating which is detrimental to your diet.
Another food group that is healthy in the correct amounts is foods with whole grains. Whole grains are a good source of complex carbs, which are broken down into sugar at a very slow rate and fiber which the body will spend energy to digest but the body cannot digest fiber. The fiber also acts like a digestive tract cleaner for your body.
Bananas excellently improve blood circulation helping to flush toxins out. Flushing toxins encourage cellulite reduction.
Some of the most fattening foods-those that are processed-may not be obviously kosher, as the designation includes food preparation. For that reason, these diet-busting foods may be avoided altogether. Processed foods that are kosher often show a certification symbol.
The raw foods diet is more about a way of eating, a lifestyle. Normally diets are thought of as temporary shifts in eating patterns for health or appearance benefits. The raw foods diet is meant to be more of a permanent choice and not meant to have restrictions in terms of calories, macronutrients, number of meals per day, etc. like most other diets have.
