Local Diet

[ad]

Farmers Market

Forget all those expensive fancy fad diets. Lose 30lbs in a month? Who are they trying to kid?

The average sustained weight loss is about two lbs per week over time. Some weeks you may only lose a lb, other weeks perhaps you’ll lose three lbs.

Fruit & Vegetables

You’ll find that the flavors of really fresh fruit and vegetables, farm-fresh new laid eggs,  lean meat direct for local farms, and locally baked whole grain breads, will have you eating a bit slower, which will make you fill up on less food.Still one of the best ways to lose weight is to eat good tasting food. Instead of consuming bland salt and fat and preservative laden convenience or fast food, why not try out your local Farmer’s Market?

You see, your brain doesn’t tell you you’re full until about twenty minutes after you’ve eaten, so when you scoff down that 1,500 calorie huge burger and large fries, it’s not until those twenty minutes have passed, that your stomach tells your brain that you’ve eaten too much. Eat slower, and you will be fuller on less!

Supermarket – NO, Farmers Market – YES

Fruit & Vegetables

While many supermarkets are selling more and more fresh fruit and vegetables, and for many this is the only option, if you can, go to your local farmers market, or even some of the local roadside stalls.

They will have the freshest produce, much of which is locally harvested, often organically, and it’s quite often cheaper (and sometimes considerably cheaper) than the supermarket.

Remember too, that the farmers market will usually only have the produce that is in season right now locally – as it’s going to be at its best for taste and longevity once you get it home.

We have found that produce bought at the farmers market will stay fresh days longer than that bought at the supermarket, which is often the best part of two weeks old by the time you buy it in any case.
