Do you have a hard time keeping up with your diet when trying to lose weight? If so, here are 5 tips to keep in mind when you’re shopping at your nearest Katy and Houston area grocery stores.

Tip 1. Stay away from the middle isles

Usually when you go searching in each isle, you find a lot of foods that taste great but bad for your health. Things like cookies, chips, and other foods that are highly processed and full of fat are in these isles. The outer isles are where you find fruits, vegetables, proteins, and dairy, which are essentials for women’s health.

 

Tip 2. Have a grocery list

When you go to the grocery store, always have a healthy grocery list by your side. This will ensure that you don’t go to the unhealthy things because you don’t know what else to buy. Plus, you’ll have more time for your fitness activities.

 

Tip 3. Frozen vegetables are ok

If you’re not a big vegetable eater, or you just always seem to buy vegetables and they always go bad; buy frozen ones! Don’t make a habit out of buying them, but as long as they don’t have any ingredients aside from the vegetable itself, it is a great and healthy buy.

 

Tip 4. Buy some fruit pre-cut

Often times at grocery stores, there is a small section that have fruit that is already cut up and ready to eat. If you are always on the go or you don’t like cutting fruit, this is a perfect way to get your daily serving of fruit.

 

Tip 5. Buy snacks

Snacks are essential when you’re hungry but not hungry enough to eat a whole meal. Buy things such as mixed nuts, Greek yogurt, string cheese, a protein bar (make sure it doesn’t have a lot of sugar), baby carrots, and you can even eat a little bit of dark chocolate!

Remember that we all have different taste buds and you have a variety of options; figure out what works best for you.
