Eating a diet that consists primarily of whole foods (that is, foods in or close to their natural state) helps to promote long-term, sustainable weight loss. This is true for a number of reasons, including these.

– Whole foods tend to be rich in fiber and water, which make the body feel full sooner and signal the brain to stop feeling hungry after consuming fewer calories.
– The refining that many processed foods undergo strips important nutrients that otherwise support the immune system and healthy brain function. These nutrients remain intact in whole foods.
– Whole foods are inexpensive and easy to find, meaning that dieters can eat wisely in any situation.
– Whole foods are free of additives (such as refined sugar and monosodium glutamate) that are known to hinder health.
– Whole foods are naturally low in sodium and often low in fat. Consuming a low-sodium, low-fat diet has been shown to prevent hypertension, obesity, and heart disease, among other conditions.
