Right now, it seems like everyone is looking for the secret to weight loss. There are tons of diet pills to choose from at the mall, and the latest quick fix diets are heavily publicized. The truth is, there’s no healthy miracle diet that will help you take off 20 pounds overnight, but there are things that can give you that extra boost to finally take the weight off once and for all. One great “extra boost” is organic food. These are foods grown without hormones, preservatives, pesticides, or other harmful chemicals.
They are designed to grow naturally in the environment and work within the human body who eats them. Eating healthy with organics can help you finally take off those excess pounds naturally. When the nutrients in an organic fruit or vegetable are compared to their traditional counterparts, they’ve been found to have significantly more beneficial substances. In some cases, there are as many as three times the amount of certain beneficial nutrients found in organic foods. In one study, organic oranges were half the size of the traditionally grown oranges and still had more vital nutrients.
Eating appropriate amounts of organic fruits and vegetables can even replace your multivitamin, by giving you every essential nutrient you need. When foods are not genetically and chemically altered, they are nature’s finest. If you doubt that organics are healthier for you, consider the fact that the artificial chemicals used in many foods are relatively new and have only been consumed for a small fraction of the time humans have been around. Our bodies are not designed to process these artificial chemicals. Hormones, preservatives, and pesticides can not be processed by the liver and therefore place excess stress upon the organ.

It’s only since the beginning of the 20th century that a large number of new synthetic chemicals have become a part of our food supply. Increasingly people are searching for foods that are closer to nature. Unfortunately, new work out the University of Michigan finds that eating organic food diet actually serves to skew a person’s perceptions about food, and not in a good way.
We assume these items are lower in calories, so it’s fine to indulge. Exercise is also seen as less necessary after eating a so-called “organic” desert. The disturbing study appears in the journal Judgment and Decision Making. These findings follow through on earlier work that shows food labels do spur misperceptions. Calling a food “low fat” on the label makes buyers think it has fewer calories. Those items labeled as “low cholesterol” are often judged as having less fat. American’s as a whole have a strong tendency to associate “organic” with healthiness according to experts. Researchers Jonathon P. Schuldt and professor Norbert Schwarz of the University of Michigan conducted two experiments to see if “organic” labels translated into “fewer calories” in the mind of the consumer.
The first, involving 114 college students who were asked to read nutrition labels on cookies – they were described as either “Oreo cookies” or “Oreo cookies made with organic flour and sugar.” Both had 160 calories but participants were asked to rate whether they thought the cookies had fewer calories or more calories than other brands on a scale of 1 fewest calories and 7 most calories. Not surprisingly, the cookies described as “organic” were rated as having fewer calories than conventional cookies. The “organic” cookies got a rating of 3.9; the traditional ones got an average rating of 5.17. Participants also thought the “organic” cookies could be eaten more than the non organic ones.
