Check out this awesome video (above) from Fitperez contributor and certified nutritional therapy practitioner, Margaux J. Rathbun, who takes a moment to teach us how to shop for food like a nutritionist!
First of all, NEVER go food shopping on an empty stomach!
That's when we let all of our cravings get the best of us and buy food that are unhealthy or we don't need, contributing to weight gain.
Another great tip, that we never really considered, is to always shop the PERIMETER of the grocery store where all the "living foods" like produce, meat, and dairy are located.
While Margaux recommends to buy organic produce, she realizes not everyone's budget allows for this healthy luxury. If that's the case, she advises to at least buy organic strawberries since they grow low to the ground and are often loaded with chemical pesticides.
Like what you hear so far? So do we! Watch Margaux's video above to get more great advice!
