Avoid Processed Foods
Stay away from fast food and frozen meals, Rich says. Even though some frozen dinners may be low in calories—about 350 or less—the quality of the food is unhealthy, he says. "You're trying to get yourself healthy and looking good and feeling good, and you're pouring pure garbage into your body," Rich says. "You will lose weight, but that doesn't mean you're going to be very healthy and look better. You're just going to be a deconditioned, unhealthy person."
