You are what you eat. So, why are continuing to eat foods rich in bad fats, carbs and refined sugar? As good and convenient as fast food can be, on the drive to work or when headed back home, it comes with consequences – low energy, unproductivity and a major dip in your happiness.
How can something that seems so good in the moment be so bad for you in the long run?
Because processed foods are made with factory-generated ingredients instead of whole food. You’re not supposed to live off of chemicals you can’t pronounce. Instead, fuel your body with lean proteins, whole grains, fruits, vegetables (especially dark and leafy greens!) and water each and every day.
When you rely on comfort foods, processed foods and sugary treats, you’re not giving your body anything real – not a single good-for-you ingredient with antioxidants, fiber, protein, unsaturated fats, hydrating properties, amino acids and natural metabolism boosters to keep your body burning fat and calories as it should and as you need it to.
