Walking into my local supermarket this morning I couldn’t believe the products being offered as “organic” and the advertising that goes with it. Just because something says “organic” ABSOLUTELY does not make it healthy. It also does not mean all of the components in it are organic. You have to read the label to uncover the truth. For example, a lot of “organic” yogurt with “fruit” is riddled with sugar and additives and preservatives. This product, therefore, is not what I would recommend to my clients to lose weight or to help maintain a healthy lifestyle. Is it the worst thing? No but don’t be fooled by the organic label. Look for foods that have only a few ingredients–with all those ingredients being actual food.
When you see “enriched” or “fortified“, that’s packaging that’s meant to mislead you. If a food product is enriched and fortified it has been stripped of its natural goodness and fortified and enriched with crap. Don’t be fooled by deceitful marketing and clever advertising. Look for food that is clean food. By clean food, I mean it should be able to survive on its own with no preservatives, additives, or the need to be enriched or fortified.
