Weight Loss Challenge – 8/20/2010 – Week 33

August 20, 2010 at 3:48 pm in Healthy Living by trumpnetwork

This week’s topic:
Food Shopping

This week, let’s pay attention to our food purchases. What choices are we making when we go food shopping? What about when we’re at a restaurant? How many times this week will we stop at a “fast-food” joint? (Hopefully, none.)

When you shop for food this week, I want you to read the food label on everything, even if you think you already know what it says. Look, not only at the nutritional breakdown, but also at the ingredients. Pay special attention to the following:

– Salt content

– Calories

– Fats (especially saturated fats)

– Protein content

– Fiber

– The presence or absence of anything “partially hydrated”

Hopefully, you’re not buying many things that have a food label, but if you are, try scaling back and going for fresh foods instead.

Tell us how it goes. Next week, we’ll look more closely at how our food choices affect our weight loss and health.
