Unjunk Your Junk Food - Book Review

These days it seems like everyone is on diets. I myself jump on the wagon and quickly fall back off. I truly enjoy food and don't like to deprive myself of anything. That's why the book, Unjunk Your Junk Food, is such a fabulous book to have!

Unlike many other books about eating right, this book doesn't want you to necessarily cut things out. This book focuses on helping you make better choices. They take a closer look at what is actually going into the foods you are eating. You would be shocked to see how many harmful ingredients are being used in every day foods that you find in your own cabinets.

I read through this book and realized how many healthier options there are out there. You don't need to give up cheesecake, but you could look into a different brand that offers a healthier selection of ingredients. There's a chart in this book that breaks down "The Scary Seven," which are ingredients you should be looking for when buying a product. I used this chart and went through my own cabinet.

I was shocked to see how many foods include artificial colors and artificial flavors. But I think what surprised me the most was how many foods use artificial sweeteners. I had heard some things about Aspartame and how you should try and avoid it. Little did I know that the yogurt I eat every morning for breakfast is actually sweetened with Aspartame. Here I thought I was making a healthy choice but was in fact containing a major ingredient that is not good for me.

Reading this book has opened my eyes and taught me to look at labels. I can still enjoy my favorite foods by exploring other brands and paying attention to what ingredients are present. I am very interested in exploring a healthier way of eating. I am paying more attention to labels but the hardest part is finding the brands that offer better ingredients. I can't seem to find all that much at my regular food store, so I need to do some more exploring.

I would really encourage you to take a look at this book, examine what you are currently eating, and reflect on how you could potentially make some healthier choices while still eating the foods you love. Check out Naturally Savvy for more information.

You can purchase this book at Barnes and Noble, Amazon, and other online retailers.
