In The Washington Post article, “Bad Eating Habits Can Be Corrected By Using the Right Workarounds”, I offer some insight on how to banish bad eating habits and win the battle against temptation and everyday excuses. Click here for original article.
Here is an excerpt from the article:
The excuse: I don’t always know what’s healthful at the store.
How to fix it: Use the 50 percent rule.
Blatner offers this advice for grocery shopping: Your cart should contain 50 percent produce (canned, fresh or frozen), 25 percent lean protein (eggs, beans, fish, chicken, leaner cuts of meat and low-fat dairy) and 25 percent whole grains (breads, cereals, pasta and wraps). Read nutrition labels on packaged food and compare serving sizes, calories, saturated fat, sodium and fiber among similar products to make the best choices.
