I am starting to love everything health related, I’m not obsessed yet. I think once I get the whole couponing for healthy foods will push me over the edge though. Anyway, I will be the first to admit, I love Dr. Oz and all the health gurus he has on there. Yes, he is a little funny looking but he knows his stuff and I love learning about that stuff from him and his guests.
On one of his shows, he had a specialist that talked about a few of the foods that you need daily, so I wanted to create a list of foods for you. Obviously this isn’t a whole list of foods you should be eating, but I believe this is a great starting point especially for someone new to wanting to lose weight and eat healthier at the same time.
Daily Foods Needed
- Green Tea
- Whole Grains
- Fruits (berries, things less sweet)
- Leafy Greens (Spinach, Collard Greens)
Foods Needed Only 3 Times A Week
- Sweet Potatoes
- Oily Fish
Foods Needed Only Once A Week
- Red Meat
- White Starch
Foods Never Needed
- Fast Food
- Processed Foods
- Canned Soup
I know there are going to be people looking at here saying, “I CAN’T give up soda” or whatever your guilty pleasure is. The truth is, you could give it up, you just don’t want to. Think about this small list, is there one thing new that you could incorporate in your life with you and your family? If you “feel” you can’t give it up right away, start small and do one less day of something you do everyday. So if you are a soda drinker (I’m a water drinker and I’ll have a glass of wine every now and again) drink one less soda than your usual each day. Take the baby steps you need to get there.
