CAUTION: THIS POST IS ONLY FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO BE SUCCESSFUL WITH LOSING WEIGHT AND BODY FAT. ALL OTHERS WILL NEED TO MOVE ON RIGHT NOW!
I found a bunch of shopping lists and lists of clean foods to shop for online (all saved and filed on my external hard drive), but I’ve found that the way I put together a shopping list is quite easy and it takes no thinking really. With my approach you won’t have to write down and carry a list around the store.
There are only 4 groups of food you should be shopping for when you’re shopping for a cleaning eating diet (only 4 – only 4 – 4g people 4g!) and here they are:
1. When I go into the supermarket I hit up the fibrous carbs section first because it’s usually located at the entrance and it makes me happy. I pick up:
NOTE: A yam or any root vegetable is a starchy carb and is located where the fibrous carbs are so I pick up my yams at this point too. Also, an avocadosis a fat and is located in this section too so yeah, I pick these up too at this point as well.
2. Next I move onto the proteins section which is located in the very back of the store and I pick up:
ie, chicken breast, eggs and fat-free feta
NOTE: At the moment I’m not consuming any fresh water fish or seafood, but I if I was I’d pick these up too.
3. Then I move onto fats which are located in a few sections of the store…
ie, natural peanut butter (ingredients are just salt and peanuts) and almond milk (both items are considered good source of protein as well)
4. Lastly, for my clean eating list I pick up the rest of my starchy carbs like:
ie, quinoa (also a good source of protein), brown rice (sometimes I’ll buy this, but not a lot), a box of Heritage Flakes by Nature’s Path (processed but their impressive ingredients list and nutrition facts are located HERE )
If you think in 4g terms you’ll be successful at the food stores all of the time. If you divert from these 4 groups then you’re most likely picking up foods that are not clean or not as clean as we like them to be. Make sure to read your ingredients lists and nutrition facts before you buy anything. Clean eating means eating as close to natural as possible.
