If you want your diet and exercise effort to work the way you intend for it to, then eating right has to become something that is as automatic for us as it was for our ancestors. It may seem like an insurmountable achievement, but really, it’s a lot easier than you may initially imagine. According to a study from the Journal of the American Medical Association, for example, this process is much simpler and more straight forward than most diets and eating plans, because studies do not lie:

Two groups were assigned to two different diets. The first group went on a diet that was rich with foods that are good for you, including whole grains, nuts, vegetables, fruits, olive oil and other similar foods that are normally found in the traditional Mediterranean diet. The second group was not given any specific direction pertaining to what foods to eat, but rather this group was told how much fats, carbohydrates and proteins to eat, so they had to put way more thought into preparing foods based on these amounts rather than simply eating foods from a specific list.

Neither group was given any specific information regarding how much or how little to eat, but rather each member was instructed to eat based on their own natural hunger patterns. Without trying, the first group that only ate from a list of “good for you” foods ended up eating less in terms of calories, losing weight, and losing inches. So what is the point of this study and others like it? The truth of the matter is, the people that eat from the good-foods group ate the foods that would naturally keep them feeling satisfied, so their bodies would naturally find the healthy weight they were meant to be at.
