DOn't eat any processed food, meaning- any food in a box, or freezer food, or dried hamburger helper type foods, or macaroni cheese using fake processed cheese, or anything with a load of ingredients.
Just don't do it.
If you have to eat- eat the whole foods, you know what they are because they are one thing- potato, apple, orange, rice, pasta ( well, OK it's flour and salt and a few things but you know, keep it simple), tofu, soymilk. Just one thing- the "whole" food- nothing has been added to a potato- it is not a "processed " food.
Reason they are bad is there is High Fructse Corn Syrup in most of them, also too much salt, too much added fat, all kind of E numbers and additives.
So, eat whole foods.
no chips, candy, pizza pockets, crap food.
Eat plain rice, plain potatos, not covered with junk, just eat fruit, veg, and write a list the person buying the food can follow.
Vegetables= broccoli, corn, beans, tomatoes, potatoes, sweet potato, peppers, carrots.
Fruit- apples, orange ( insiert your fave fruit)
WHolewheat bread ( not "wheat flour"- that's just white flour)
no sugar added peanut butter and jam
fava beans ( make salads and soups with these last four-)
NO SODA- just juice or water or tea.
I dont know what you mean by " I dont buy the food for the house" but if you live with your parents im sure they would be really excited about this if you told them. If you live in an apartment with roomies or something try to find someone else who might be on board with this idea and maybe try it with you. Or if no one wants to here are a few tips:
1.Avoid soda anywhere you can. Water isn't hard to get and soda is full of sugar and other things. And once you don't have it for a while, you don't even like it.
2. Exercise. Alot of times a good diet won't do alot if you don't exercise, plus it will help you lose wait by itself. Maybe run or even go to the gymn.
3. Don't just eat to eat. Alot of times people eat because they are bored or nervous.
4. Salads are always good anytime you can get them, in the house or eating out.
5. Just plain watch what you eat all the time. At work or at home... avoid donuts, candy etc.
read the labels. if the ingredients list is a paragraph of alphabet soup, don't eat or drink it.
stay away from high fructose corn syrup and fizzy or fruity drinks (100% natural juice being an exception...but try to stay away from concentrate, if you can.)
on fruits and veggies, if the upc number starts with '9' its organic, if it starts with '8' its genetically modified...everything else is spray with pesticide and other shiz. DO NOT eat genetically modified food, they haven't been out long enough to determine long term effects.
AVOID name brand meats...they raise the animals in horrible conditions (they literally spend their lives standing knee deep in their own sh*t), and pump them full of steroids and immune boosters to keep them 'healthy'. oh, they also feed chicken poo to cows.
these three are the main culprits:Tyson, Smithfield, and Perdue.
as a general rule of thumb: if it wasn't around when your grandparents were kids, you shouldn't eat it.
get ahold of this video, and make whoever it is that buys the food watch it with you.
finally, start a small garden. that's the only true way to determine what goes into the food you eat.
considering it healthy, if u wanna lose weight, try sports. Doing some sports would do and eat normally, equal amount of meat and veggies.
you must eat 3 meals in a day and do sports and if you felt hunger you can eat fruits and vegetables but dont eat between meals if you want to eat something between meals it will be fruits or vegetables.
