“But I don’t want to eat processed food”

“But I don’t want to eat processed food.”

I get it. It’s an excuse, but I get it.

My goal is to teach you how to eat whole foods in a way that you will maintain, once your hit your goal weight. There is a big difference between eating cheetos, and something processed with perfectly balanced nutrition so you don't have to do all that calculating and can use that mental energy on the real work which is your mindset.

OPTAVIA Essential Fuelings do not contain colors, flavors, or sweeteners from artificial sources and OPTAVIA Select Fuelings do not contain colors, flavors, sweeteners or preservatives from artificial sources. Each Fueling is a good source of high-quality complete protein and is full of essential vitamins and minerals.

I realized I had no problem eating processed food. That is partially the reason we find ourselves needing to get healthy in the first place. We eat way too much junk and it makes us crave more junk and we feel like crap and we self soothe with food and the cycle continues. I had no problem eating a “healthy” vegan chocolate chip cookie, or Annie’s Mac and cheese... what are those things? Everything for the most part that we eat is prepackaged and processed in some way. We just aren’t used to viewing them that way.

So... want different results? Try something differentšŸ™ƒ When I started losing weight EASILY for the first time in my entire life and I felt THIS GOOD... I began to care less and less about it being pre-packaged and more thankful that I had a great nutritional product that was delivered to my door and I could throw in my bag and go do all the things.


Processed foods can be healthy
