I filmed a video that should inspired all of you to eat healthier, and to avoid junk food! :)
Sometimes it's hard to say "no" to certain foods that actually aren't good for your body, (but hey, they taste good!)...or we have "a sweet tooth" and we just get these sugar cravings...it may taste unbelievebly well for a few sec. but in the long run, it won't do us anything good!
At the beginning, it may be hard to stop these bad food cravings, but it is definitely possible! You just need to have a strong will and be determined!
You need to slowly start introducing healthy substitutes for the junk food you're currently addicted to...for example...if you have the habbit of eating chocolate every day as an "afternoon snack", buy a pack of dried apples instead, mix them with some dried cranberries...and to your snack add a slice of bread with jam (make sure it doesn't have any sugar added!)...
You can also enjoy preparing delicious fruit salads, mixing your favourite fruits together, adding some cereals and honey...
After a while, I promise, you'll realize that you don't crave those bad, junk food you used to crave so much!
Your body will simply adjust to this new, healthier way of eating, and you'll feel a certain gratification, not to mention that you'll be healthier & overall, feel so much better (and look better!)
Mind me, I'm not saying that from now on you should only eat fruit salads!!! I'm all for a variety when it comes to my meals, so I do eat meat, fish, vegetables, pasta, dairy etc., all with moderation!
I would stay away from fried food, greasy food, food with many colorants, conservants and added sugar...I try to focus on unprocessed food (as much as I can) and prepare my own meals from scratch!
To give you an idea, here is my grocery shopping (+ some extra tips on how to eat healthy & how to stop bad food cravings!)
I hope this video was helpful & inspiring!
