Fat-free foods are making you fatI see you in the grocery store, carefully eyeing everything you pick up on the shelf. One phrase seems to be the determining factor of what goes in your cart and what goes back on the shelf: fat-free. What you don't know is that your careful dietary selections are only going to make you fatter. This is why and I'm praying that you will pay close attention...

Manufacturers are sneaky; they know weight loss is a huge market and that people are starting to pay more attention to their diets. How do they get their hands on a piece of the $61-billion-dollar Weight Loss Industry pie? They slap a label on their overly-processed foods that say "fat-free", then they sit back and watch the money start rolling in.

What these manufacturers don't tell you is that, while they skinnied-up the fat, they fattened-up the sugar to compensate for taste.  I'm not a conspiracy theorist, but my belief is that there is no such thing as fat-free processed food.  Guess what sugar turns into when it's done being processed by the body? FAT. See—while the body does need some sugar to function properly, all excess sugar beyond bodily needs is automatically stored as fat.

Not only that, but the fat is usually stored where most people are dying to get it off the most: the belly, hips, and thighs!

Not only do processed foods have an insanely-high amount of sugar, they also use way too much sodium to help preserve the food to allow for a longer shelf-life. Too much sodium in your body causes water retention to the tune of an added 2 to 5 extra pounds on the bathroom scale. Guess where your body is going to carry most of that water? If you guessed "my gut", you're right!

What are you doing to prepare for bikini season? Are you ready to rock a two-piece poolside this summer, or do you plan on sitting this one out again? If you’re wondering how to get a bikini body, look no further; help has arrived!

Getting your bikini body ready for the summerLove Handles, Muffin Tops, Belly Fat, Oh My!

First things first: Get your nutrition under control. If your diet primarily consists of processed foods, your abs will never see the light of day. It doesn’t matter how many crunches you do, or calories you count; putting crap in your body is going to add fat to your belly (and hips, and butt, and thighs). Don’t get me started on cellulite. Just remember this equation: Processed foods = disgusting belly fat.

Cutting out processed foods means cutting out roughly 80 percent of food sold in grocery stores. Thinking about what all you can’t eat may overwhelm you in the beginning; it’s best to concentrate on what you can eat: protein, dairy, vegetables, fruits, fats, and nuts. Get creative with it and learn to enjoy the benefits of eating a clean diet (i.e. void of processed foods).
