Real food. Fruits and Vegetables in the produce section. Meat. Fish Eggs. Are much better for you, and less fattening, than foods that are very starchy like pasta, potatoes, bread etc.
The worst foods to eat are those that come in packages with a seasoning packet included and such.
Foods that are processed, instant, pre packaged, easy to cook, etc, are loaded with preservatives. Preservatives works against your body. They actually slow down your metabolism. Sadly children that grow up eating crap like that are at a disadvantage from the start. Their metabolism is being stunted in childhood making them doomed to be overweight as adults.
The key is to shop mostly on the outer edges of the grocery store. Limit yourself when it comes to the stuff in the middle. Don't even go in the frozen section unless you're only buying veggies! Or veggie burgers
Cut up some carrots, green beans, peppers, squash, maybe a few tomatoes, whatever veggies you like - put them all in a roasting pan, shake some Mrs Dash on it (they have a bunch of flavors and they're salt free) drizzle with olive oil, stir to coat it all, put in the oven at 400 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes.
You want chicken? Put some in a pan on medium heat with some Italian dressing. Cook about 10 - 15 minutes (til you see the bottom edges turning white) and flip it. Once its cooked halfway throw some dried cranberries and walnuts on top to cook the rest of the way. Very easy. Make some rice and green beans. Boom. Dinner.
Cooking doesn't have to be complicated. Get a crock pot and look up some crock pot recipes. Makes cooking even easier!
Processed food is not good stuff. Bagel bites will kill you, man.
