Healthy Food Fattens Too

I would like to clear up a common misconception and a particular pitfall of which many fall prey. Healthy food fattens too, contrary to what it says on the label. It may be low fat low carb or just made up of more wholesome goodness than you should be able to fit inside one meal but the truth is that if you eat too much of that good stuff you will put on some weight. Let me give you some diet tips that will make weight loss mindless.
Eating clean has received a lot of press in the last couple of years and I think that it is a great way to look at your food. If you can’t imagine the food in its natural form you should probably stay away from that particular food. It is hard to imagine coffee creamer or pop tarts in their natural form and that indicates that they are highly processed and most likely not all that nutritious. But what about blue berries, salad, or lean meat?
Your diet should be based around the healthy close to nature, non processed foods, but if you eat too many of them you will not loose weight or even worse you will put weight on and not really understand why.
For years I would notice calorie percentages on nutrition labels and dismiss these suggestions because in my opinion basing consumption on a 2000 calorie a day diet was ridiculous. I simply did not comprehend that that a human could function or thrive on that little amount of food. And sure enough I had the body to prove that eating more than 2000 calories a day would not contribute to the lean beach physique that many pursue obsessively.
Sure I ate fairly clean and steered away from fast food and fried food most of the time but I would eat about as much healthy food as I liked. I would drink a couple of large glasses of juice a day and snack on cereal or what ever healthy food I could get my hands on. It was not until I realized that a calorie is a calorie and that your metabolism is a closed system did I understand how to control my weight
