Processed Food

"Avoiding processed foods will not only help you lose weight, but since you will be substituting them with healthy alternatives, you will be leading a far healthier lifestyle too."

"Processed foods are most of the store bought packaged stuff that you get at any kirana store or grocery store, which have a lot of preservatives and have been altered from their natural state in order to make them convenient to buy and consume. The methods used for processing foods include canning, freezing, refrigeration, dehydration and aseptic processing."

"This list is endless. Starting from pizza, white bread, and pastries (flour is highly processed), it goes on to the mayonnaise or tomato ketchup that you have lying in your kitchen to the packaged cereals and cornflakes that you may be eating for breakfast, to the biscuit packets that you munch on.
