7 organic foods NEVER to buy

Here's something controversial, but extremely true: You don't have to buy EVERYTHING organic to obtain a flat belly. 
That's great news from my friend Joel. He's going to save you money with these tips today...
7 Organic Foods NEVER to Eat
Some foods are important, and others you can definitely get by with the regular stuff. For example, I always choose organic meats to avoid being exposed to the synthetic hormones that non-organic livestock is generally treated with throughout their life cycle. 
Sure, it's a little more expensive, but some things are just worth paying for -- protecting the health of my family is definitely one of them!

That said, I'm all about saving cash, and that's why there are certain foods we NEVER buy organic.  Why?  Because for some foods, there is no additional benefit to the organic vs. the non-organic version.  Let me explain.

When it comes to produce, the benefit of buying organic is to avoid ingesting pesticides and chemicals that are generally used on non-organic fruits and vegetables. 
That said, foods like bananas, avocados, oranges, melons, and grapefruits have a thick skin barrier between the outside world and the fruit itself so the pesticides actually never come in contact with the fruit that you eat, and of course these are fruits where the outer layer is typically discarded.

Contrast that with apples, tomatoes, pears, and other fruits and veggies where you eat the skin, and you'll see why it's important to choose organic for some and not for others.

Rule #1: If a fruit has a thick skin that you discard and don't eat, save some cash and go with the non-organic version.

Next up, there are other veggies that pests simply aren't attracted to due to their high sulfur content, such as onions and garlic.  Don't bother spending the extra cash here either as these veggies aren't typically treated with pesticides in the first place.

In the end, spend the money where there's benefit, and pinch those pennies when there's not!

Speaking of controversial topics, did you know there are certain foods (including several fruits and veggies) that when you eat them, they actually SLOW your fat loss results?  In reality, eating these foods could be the difference between losing 10 - 20 pounds quickly, or it taking WEEKS to lose even a single pound.

Do you want to lose flab SLOWER than you could be?  I don't think anybody wants that!  That's why it's critically important that you never eat these waist-expanding "healthy" foods, EVER.

Fortunately, my good friend Shawn Wells just wrote a brand new report that you can download for free today, showing you 8 of the absolute WORST health foods for your waistline.

Thanks Joel, great advice.
When I'm not getting spinach and kale from my garden, or local blueberries and apples from a friend's farm, I happily invest a little more in the organic version. But it's great to know I can save $$$ on my avocado and bananas.
Bally the Dog loves it when I save money, too, because then he tricks me into spending the pinched pennies on organic treats for him. Ha!
Hope that helped.

Stay strong and slim this weekend with those tips,
