Food quality is just as important as food quantity. Eating healthy foods can improve your health and help regulate appetite.
This foods tend to be much more filling than their processed counterparts; for example having pure sugar as opposed to sweet potatoes – sweet potatoes are obviously more healthy and filling than pure sugar.
Both people eating the same amount of carbohydrates are going to loose the same amount of weight but one person is going to be a lot healthier and satisfied doing so.
Many health experts believe that eating more whole foods is our best bet for improving health and preventing disease. Whole foods – like vegetables, fruits, whole grains, nuts, and legumes — retain their fiber as well as the whole portfolio of beneficial phytochemicals and nutrients that are often removed in processed foods.
There are a lot of foods out there labelled as health foods but they definitely aren’t healthy. Stick to single ingredient foods as much as possible and by single ingredient I mean : sweet potatoes, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, asparagus, chicken, beef, eggs etc.
Sticking to things that are real most of the time in most cases is the best way to go for health and easy body composition management.
