How many times have you heard someone say that they need to start "eating healthier?" But what exactly does eating healthy mean?
Sure, you can jump on the kale bandwagon or find the nearest retailer and begin to start juicing everything in sight, but for some "eating healthy" can be transitioning from regular soda to diet soda or taking your carbohydrate rich diet and deciding to limit the number of those carbs you eat on a regular basis.
Simply put, eating healthy is a relative phrase that means different things to different people, depending on a variety of factors. What makes eating better even trickier and more challenging is so called unhealthy foods masquerade as healthy alternatives.
Everything from that morning orange juice to the healthy drinks you consume before, during or after a workout, you may be sabotaging your healthy eating by choosing food and drinks that pretend to be something they're not, but yet are marketed as being optimum choices.
Take for instance that aforementioned juice or healthy drinks. Have you ever checked the sugar content of any type of juice, such as orange or cranberry? Those numbers are remarkably scary, so you're better bet is to juice your own fruit or find an alternative that is sweetened with Stevia, an all natural sweetener that beats aspartame or sucralose.
