Food Cleanse

I love to watch the Dr. Oz show while I am exercising. I also enjoy his website, and want to share a challenge that he gave about what food to get rid of in my home.

Dr. Oz’s Rule of 5, which forces you to throw away all the food in your house that list ANY of the following within the first 5 ingredients:

1. Simple sugars
2. Syrups
3. White flours
4. Saturated fats
5. Trans fats

So now my dejunking will move to the kitchen.

I have been told that 80% of weight loss success is due to the foods I eat and 20% is due to exercise. Honestly I find it easier to exercise than to always eat healthy but that means that I need to get serious about label reading and follow the Rule of 5.

What a great challenge. I have been reading labels a lot more now that I have kids (I guess I am okay with putting junk in my body) but I need to do better than I am.
