Top 10 Benefits of Eating a Whole Food Diet
Have you been trying to eat healthier? It can be hard to stick to any diet when brownies, potato chips, and fast food tempt us with the promise of something deliciously sweet or salty. But while processed foods taste good, they can leave us feeling sluggish and moody for the rest of the day.
If you want to live a happier and healthier life, try to say goodbye to processed foods. The whole foods diet focuses on cutting out “fake” and processed foods, in favor of their natural counterparts.
Any diet improvement will benefit your health; even if you can only follow a whole food diet for one or two meals a day, it is better than eating processed foods 100% of the time. When I was still seeing clients for nutrition consultations (before I became a textile designer, read more about me), I often suggested patients follow an 80% whole food regime, which allowed room for 20% of the diet to be less healthy. I found that once people noticed how much better they felt eating well, this 20% would get smaller and smaller until they no longer felt the cravings for junk food.
Just like with any diet, there will be a challenging adjustment period where you’ll probably crave cookies and crackers like crazy. But, if you can commit to the whole foods diet, you’ll reap many amazing benefits.
