This article will inform you about the world of organic food dieting, and aid you in making an informed decision to choose whether you would prefer to eat organic or non-organic food to lose weight. The definition of organic food is food that has been grown or produced in a natural way, which does not include the use of chemicals or pesticides.
The easiest way to ensure that you are getting organic food into your diet is by cooking yourself from home, as you can guarantee that what you are putting into your pan or oven is organic. And in terms of diet food, you can keep a close eye on the calorie content and fat content. It is easy to find organic foods at your local supermarket as they are clearly marked as being organic (USDA Organic labeling), as this has started to be seen as a selling point of food produce over the past few years.
Alternatively, go to your local farmers market and the farmer will be able to advise you there and then if he uses chemical and pesticides on his farm. In this way, you will also be supporting local business in your area. Another benefit is that you will find that you are getting a more varied diet, as you will discover yourself eating seasonal fruits and vegetables, and “variety is the spice of life”.
There is scientific research that encourages people to eat more organic food as diet food, because natural foods are easier for the body to process; which means that your body can burn more fat in the same period of time. The benefit of this is that you can still have that plate of steak and fries once a week as long as it is organic steak and the fries are home cooked from organic potatoes. Remember the best way to lose weight is to have a balanced and healthy diet, which also means that you can have a bit of cheese alongside your stereotypical diet food like fruits and vegetables… everything in moderation. Here is a great video for you to watch that talks about the effect on your body when changing to an organic diet.
If you need more persuading to go organic, you will be protecting the environment as the chemical and pesticides used to make fruit last longer or to make corn grow taller damages the environment overtime.
Now, of course, it could be quite challenging to remove non-organic and processed foods from your kitchen, and start going all organic. However it can be done by taking small steps, slowly integrating organic foods and committing your time and energy in preparing your own meals into your daily routine.
