Gradually Eliminate Processed Foods From Your Diet

If you prefer to avoid anything that has undergone artificial modification, then you are probably already aware of the facts about processed foods. Many people choose to forgo extensively processed foods that are commonly found in grocery stores. They instead try to shop at farmer’s markets for local sourced nutrition. How to go about cutting out processed food? Take a look at these “mini-pledges” that you can try over the course of several months instead of going cold turkey.

For example, one mini-pledge is to only consume locally-raised meat for a week. “Local” is within 100 miles of your hometown. It certainly sounds like that could be more of a hassle than simply going to the grocery store, but for some, this is a challenge worth the effort!

Another example is to avoid all foods if they are advertised as “low-fat” or “light” (or any variation of that trend). This is a compelling pledge because the decades-old attempt to sell these reduced-fat alternatives has actually backfired. It turns out that taking the fat out of foods increases the carbohydrate concentration, which in turn can lead to increased incidences of diabetes.

Want to start cutting out all processed foods? Review these pledges to get started!
