from junk food to healthy food

The following are three excellent ways to get you started on your road to detoxification and a healthier lifestyle:

1. Allow For Three Days

Realize that an addiction to junk-food will likely result in withdrawal symptoms and cravings. The first three days are going to be tough as our bodies work to get rid of the toxins and realize we are not giving into the addiction anymore.

WE CAN DO ANYTHING FOR THREE DAYS, RIGHT? DO THESE THINGS TO HELP GET THROUGH IT:

  • Remove as much temptation from your daily routine as possible during the first few days
  • Drink more water than usual and add lemon when possible
  • Take frequent walks outside
  • Have nuts, veggies and other easy snacks on hand
  • Don’t starve yourself, just choose better options

2. Stick To Three

Keeping on the three theme, apparently three is the magic number. A study out of Cornell University found that we prefer multi-colored food on our plate. The recommendation is to choose three different types of food in three different colors when creating your meals.

3. Read Labels

The longer the ingredient list usually means the more processed it is. Food companies are required to list the ingredients in order of the amount in the product, with the ingredient with highest amount being listed first. Try to stay away from foods that have sugar, white flour and unfamiliar ingredients near the top of the list. The best way to tackle the grocery store is to spend time on the outside aisles, the produce section, and the organic aisles.
