Can organic foods assist you in loosing weight?

Can organic foods assist you in loosing weight? Well, I'm no doctor, but I have made some personal observations. In recent times, many people have resulted to eating healthy, by insisting on organic foods. Some of those who changed their eating habit and kept to this habit of healthy eating have testified that they have been able to naturally loose some excess fats which they have struggled to loose over the years.


Why is this so, one may ask. Some nutritionist have explained that since organic foods are made up of natural ingredients and are devoid of artificial ingredients, they are naturally more benefitial to our bodies. Our bodies can easily process natural foods. However, when we take unwholesome foods, the body is given extra stress in processing such junks. Eventually, the junk food deposits more fats in the body than the body can burn off. Well, this point has remained a controversial subject, with proofs and counter-proofs.


Many farmers are begining to invest in organic foods production. Several companies are also promoting the habit of eating wholesome organic foods. Even though organic foods tends to be more expensive, the claim that they can help one to avoid excessive weight is a good reason to invest in them. It is better to eat well, than to spend money on weight loss program and supplements.


Due to the increase in awareness of this benefits, some dubious fellows have started peddling stuff that are not really organic. It is therefore advisable to check what you want to buy before parting with money.


The fact is that for foods to be called "Organic" it means that it was grown without fertilizers or pesticides. And the animals that are organic had to be feed with food grown without pesticides or fertilizers. One of the requirements for the feed for animals that are organic is that the crop must be fertilized without sewage sludge. ]

Personally, I agree with those who claim that organic foods and products can help with weight managment. My observation that the generations before us have less weight issue is enough reason to consider the fact that organic foods may actually be better for a healthier body. Eating stuffs that are manipulated in a science lab has never appealled to me. I'm no guinea pig, so I prefer eating wholesome food for a healthier body.

Instead of spending a fortune on weight loss pills and diet programs, maybe you should just invest a little in organic foods and find out by yourself, the answer to the question. I'll love to hear your thought on the question, Can organic foods assist you in loosing weight? Cheers.


Organic Foods

What are organic foods?
Perhaps you’ve heard the word “organic foods” and you were wondering if it is a new invention of the scientists! Well, here is a simple explanation without the usual technical jargons. Organic foods are foods which are produced in the most natural way possible without the use of artificial ingredients. Well, it is quite difficult to get such except you live in the remote villages of Africa or Asia.

So, in the developed nations, foods are classified as organic when their production is regulated to comply with acceptable standards that ensure that the production is as natural as possible. i.e. minimal introduction of production boosting chemicals are introduced. In most cases, pesticides are not allowed during growth and non-organic fertilizers are prohibited in the case of crops.

In the case of livestock they must be reared without the routine use of antibiotics and without the use of growth hormones. Even then feeds must be natural. No genetic manipulation in whatever sense.

Organic foods are usually much more expensive than the common foods. Due to this, organic food production is heavily regulated. In developed nations such as the European Union, the United States, Canada and Japan organic food producers are required to obtain special certification before they can label their produce as organic products.
