If you’ve ever done any research into a healthy diet, you’ve probably heard over and over again that eating too many unhealthy, processed foods can lead to chronic conditions like diabetes, heart disease, obesity, and even cancer.
Most guidelines are good at telling you what not to eat if you want to stay healthy and live longer. You might even feel a pang of guilt when you reach for a donut, or another french fry, or a sugary soda. How many times do you hear the nagging word “no” in your head as you put an item in your cart at the grocery store?
But did you know that those same chronic conditions are also caused by not eating enough of the right foods? By turning toward “yes” foods and away from “no” foods, you can actually eat well and stay satisfied, while adding years to your life.
