A Grocery List to Begin Your Weight Loss Program!

January 8, 2013 - By Nautilus Plus

Temps de lecture 3 minutes

A significant step to begin your weight loss process on the right foot is to clean your fridge, freezer, and pantry. It is necessary to clear all reserves of foods with poor nutritional value or unhealthy foods to make room for more nutritious choices. Before going to the supermarket, always plan ahead the meals and snacks of the week, and make your grocery list accordingly. Once you get to the supermarket, stick to the items on your list. This way, you will not buy foods out of impulse, have fewer losses, and save money!

To give you a little help, here is a grocery list made of healthy foods among which you can choose to start your weight loss process:

Vegetables and Fruit
Make sure that you change them on a weekly basis, with a rainbow of colors in order to get a wide range of vitamins and minerals. I challenge you to get out of your comfort zone, and try a new kind every week!
