When you’re trying to lose a few pounds by sticking to a healthy weight loss program like ReShape®, your typical grocery shopping trips can feel like walking into a situation full of temptation.
Here are some simple tips from Popsugar that will help you navigate the aisles without filling your cart with unhealthy foods. Try them out this week and see how quickly you can learn how to pick out food that will satisfy your appetite and weight loss goals.
Shop the Perimeter Method
The perimeter method means shopping mostly along the outside walls along the grocery store where you’ll find fresh produce, meats, seafood, dairy, and eggs. Skip the processed foods, chips, sodas, and other unhealthy stuff located in the center aisles.
Never Shop Hungry
Shopping when you’re hungry is a recipe for disaster. Usually, your hunger takes over and dictates what goes into your cart. Curb this type of behavior by grabbing a healthy snack or lunch before heading to the grocery store.
Make a List
It sounds simple but a list not only reminds you what exactly it is you need to pick up, it also works as a game plan,and sticking to a plan will help you out tremendously, especially if you’re new to this.
Choose the Right Packaged Foods
It’s important to stay away from packaged foods, unless it’s something healthy like precut produce. Also, be sure to read the labels, steer clear of processed foods and junk, and choose packaged foods that will help you save time while maintaining healthy eating habits.
Choose the Right Stores
Try to shop at natural food markets and local markets as often as possible as they tend to offer premium produce, organic ingredients, and grass-fed animal products that will fuel your body with the best nutrients needed to meet your weight loss goals.
