Like the athlete in this article, my husband discovered the same truth. Even though he had always been a very physical, athletic guy, he struggled for years with an extra 10+ pounds. But ever since he switched to eating a diet of “real” foods (mostly organic), his weight has pretty much remained in his optimal range.
As a nutritionist, I have always told my clients that if they eat a healthy diet, consisting mostly of real, natural food, their weight would fall in line. That’s not to say that just by eating organic a person will be thin. Calories still count in organic food. Too many organic cookies can still pack on the pounds. But when you eat organic, or at least real, unprocessed foods, your whole metabolic system works more efficiently.
