One of the main components of becoming healthier, leaner and fitter really does start with WHICH foods we chose to consume!
Here are 5 reasons to remind you why unprocessed/real foods are KEY:
1. Much more nutritious
They improve nutritional deficiencies and reduce hunger.
- Quality protein
Better bioavailable sources of protein.
- Higher in soluble fiber
Great sources of soluble fiber include sweet potatoes, beans, fruits and vegetables.
- Contain polyphenols
Plant molecules with antioxidant properties. Some polyphenols may help with fat loss, such as epigallocatechin gallate in green tea.
- They will help you make a lifestyle change
Shifting your focus to eating more unprocessed foods, rather than following a diet, WILL make you healthier.
The Bottom Line
A diet rich in unprocessed foods is great for your health and can also help you lose weight!
