The Connection Between Organic Food and Weight Loss

Literally millions of dollars in advertising money has been spent on everything from the spectacularly celebrity endorsed to the mundane. Every other week there seems to be a new breakthrough in dietary science. If it is not a pill, it is the extract of some weird food or another. Most of us settle on a reasonable choice somewhere in the middle.
Diets are More about Sensible Choices than Types of Food
Many of life’s everyday foods can be considered diet food if eaten in the right combination and moderation. Over the last few years, most of the diets are sensible, containing many of these foods. What many do not realize is that they can take the diet that they are on now and supercharge it so that it is even healthier and will help you lose even more weight.
Going Organic Supercharges your current Diet
If you take your diet that includes the healthy choices that make perfect sense, and swap those healthy foods for their even healthier organic counterparts, you get a diet that makes more sense than any diet ever has. If you could lose 10 lbs in a month on your old diet, you should be able to lose twice that by switching to organic and be healthier for it. Here are the common sense reasons why.
- Organic foods have more of the health benefits than their chemical soaked counterparts have
- Organic foods are free from the chemicals that make most foods so dangerous and downright deadly
- Your body processes organic foods more efficiently
The Misaligned Egg
For years, the myths surrounding eggs have kept them out of the limelight as a super food. That veil has recently been lifted. The egg is a super food.
Myth one: Eggs contain cholesterol, which causes heart disease.
This is simply not true. Eggs do contain cholesterol. Eggs have more cholesterol than most other foods. A large egg has around 212mg of the cholesterol about which people speak. However, it has been proven many times that the cholesterol in eggs does not have an effect of the cholesterol level in the human body except to raise the good cholesterol levels…, which is a good thing.
Myth two: Eggs have no nutritional value.
The truth is that eggs are teeming in Lutein and Zeaxanthine. These are antioxidants that help fight off age related disorders of the eyes. And that is a good thing.
Why should eggs be a diet food?
A large egg only has 77 calories, 9 essential amino acids, and 6 grams of protein. Eggs are also brain food in that they contain Choline, which promotes brain health and alertness. In an egg, you also find many of the vitamins you need to stay healthy during a diet, plus… eggs are filling, helping you to eat less. An organic egg is all of this, plus a little bit more and it is free from the harmful chemicals we feed our chickens with and shoot into our chickens to preserve them. It is scary how we treat chickens.
Like the super egg, most foods that are farm fresh are wonderfully good for you and have the kind of nutrients we need to live long and healthy lives. Organically grown food have more of this natural goodness, our bodies were made to process foods that are grown organically and do so better than those with added chemicals, which our liver and kidneys must work to filter from our systems.

Why Organics Make Better Diet Foods
- Organic food tastes better
- We digest organic foods better
- We get more nutrients from organic foods
- We naturally eat less because our bodies crave less
Chemical pesticide levels build up inside each of us as we go through our lives. Eventually, we develop cancers and other illnesses that could have been avoided if we could only eat the way God and nature intended. The chemicals, which cannot be washed off our foods, kill hundreds of farm workers and cause birth defects in their families. Organic farms, which only make up 5% of all the farmland, are far better for us. If organic food and produce is better for us nutritionally, it only makes sense that they make far better diet food than their chemically hindered counterparts do.
