I often get asks where girls tell me they are eating “healthy” and not seeing results. When they give me examples of their diet… what I tend to find is that their “healthy” is not the same as MY “healthy”
Just because you’ve been told by a friend or read in a magazine that a food is “healthy” doesn’t mean it is. Packaging can also be VERY misleading. “Fat Free”, ”Whole Grain”, “All Natural” are all words thrown around to make the outside of the box appear to contain a quality product.
