Hi, friends! We’re ready to start Objective #5! You can go back and read all the Practical Guide posts and start the program at any time. Keep in mind that we’re making small changes that add up to HUGE results in your overall health. That means you have to keep up all the good work you did on the past objectives, and add in each new goal.
Objective #5: Limit/Avoid Processed Foods
I’m changing things up this week, and discussing this objective on video! Before we get started, I want you to remember all the things we worked on in Objective #4. The information I’m presenting is just that – information. I don’t want you to feel bad about what you eat or have any guilt associated with it – that just leads to self-hate and bad choices. Take this new knowledge, and use it to make informed decisions about what you eat moving forward.
Your Objective: For the next 3 weeks, limit/avoid processed foods.
Keep in mind that when I’m referring to processed foods, I’m talking about processed carbohydrates, and vice versa – at least in the context of this video, and this objective. While sodas are definitely something to avoid, I really want you focusing on limiting processed foods right now. Find better replacements for the processed foods you typically eat, and load up on the all the whole food carbohydrates – leafy greens, vegetables (including starchy veggies), fruit and grains such as white rice, brown rice, and quinoa.
I will be sending some practical tips via email over the next few weeks, and posting lots of info in the Facebook group. Just click through to ask to join. Also be sure to sign up for the Practical Guide to Wellness email list.
Tell me: Did you learn anything new in this video? What’s one way you’ll cut out processed foods?
