Skip the middle for a better middle
Try shopping the perimeter of the grocery store where the real food is, anything in the aisles is likely processed. Real food has a short shelf-life and expiration date. Foods like bread, rice, pasta, sweets, and soda are all simple carbohydrates high on the glycemic rating scale. Processed foods that are refined, ground, bleached, or overcooked are also higher on the glycemic than the natural alternative.
Some carbs are good!
Is is important to avoid high-glycemic carbohydrates that raise blood sugar too rapidly, causing your body to release insulin and store fat. Long before grocery stores, we thrived on real, natural food, which has been shown to reduce cholesterol, blood pressure, obesity, energy, and mood by preventing hyperinsulinism – or a rise and fall in blood sugar.
Keep in mind caloric intake still matters. Agricultural and food industries have advanced faster than our bodies can adapt so we are no longer equipped to handle the high-calorie chemical-filled foods that are being processed and produced. The recommended caloric intake for women is about 10 calories per pound of body weight, and about 11 calories per pound of body weight. Roughly 30% of the calories should come from protein, 30% from fat, and 40% from carbohydrates. These recommendations, of course, depend on health, activity level, and goals.
