Have you ever heard that you shouldn’t go grocery shopping while hungry? The grocery store is actually the number one source of those unwanted pounds we gain! We never look for the healthy food when we are hungry!
For most people, shopping can be a bit unorganized and our grocery carts can end up leaning more toward the fat than the fit side, avoiding the healthy food altogether.
However, it doesn’t have to be like that! Our grocery shopping trips should be part of our workout routine and should help in the transformation process!
We’ve broken down the process of healthy grocery store navigation with an easy-to-remember acronym – FITNESS.
Let’s take a look at how this simple process can completely transform the way we shop and ultimately get rid of those unwanted pounds!
F: First Veggies
Don’t be shy here – you should aim to fill most of your cart from the produce section!
I: Is it Wheat?
The more whole grain, the better! Look for those hearty wheat products!
T: Trim the Fat
Want to be lean? Then eat lean meats. Fish and chicken are excellent sources of lean meat here. Love your ground beef? Try a ground turkey substitute!
N: Never enter the Junk Food Aisle
Nothing good ever came from walking down the junk food aisle-just say no.
E: Edge around the store
Shop in a circle-stick to the perimeter of the store, do less shopping in the aisles.
S: Skinny Cow
Fat free dairy products are the way to go-you’ll only lose unwanted pounds.
S: Stick with Water
Looking for a tasty beverage? Look no farther than crystal clear water.
And just like that, but sticking with the FITNESS plan when going grocery shopping, you will see an incredible transformation not only in your healthy food diet, but in yourself!
Are you ready to take your body from fat to fit? We’ve got what it takes to get you there! No guess work, no fad diets, and no super long workouts.
