Weight-Loss Wednesday #4

I'm back for week 4 of my weight-loss Wednesdays! If you haven't seen this weekly thing I am now doing, you can check out my first entry HERE. As I mentioned in week 1, I am going to be sharing Bob Harper's Skinny Rules over the course of the next 13 weeks and I am going to share my progress on meeting his rules and trying to incorporate them into my life! 

Last week I shared Rules 4 and 5.

All of that being said, I am now moving on to the next rule.

Rule #6 - Eat apples and berries every single day. Every. Single. Day!

Bob's section for this rule included some helpful tips that I wanted to share regarding fruits and vegetables. 
Worth it organics
-          Apples
-          Asparagus
-          Celery
-          Cherries
-          Lettuce
-          Nectarines
-          Peaches
-          Pears
-          Spinach
-          Strawberries
-          Sweet bell peppers
-          Tomatoes

Not worth it organics
-          Avocados, bananas, broccoli, cabbage, frozen peas, kiwi, mangos, onions, papayas, pineapple

Berries and apples are good because they have phytochemicals that restore balance. Also Bob talks about how frozen berries are just as good as fresh and can often be cheaper, if price is your main issue. Just be sure they don’t have extra added sugar!

  1. I probably would rethink the Avocado. That is one of the best of the best food to eat. I know it has good fats, all you have to do is eat 1/4 to 1/2 at least three days a week. its nutrient is to important to dismiss it. check out this site.
