Eat Organic

If you’re not completely sold on the farmers markets yet, here’s another argument for you: “Research shows that dieters with higher levels of pesticide chemicals stored in their fat cells had reduced metabolism,” says Elizabeth Lombardo, Ph.D., author of A Happy You: Your Ultimate Prescription for Happiness. “It appears the toxins in non-organic food can cause your body to store fat rather than metabolize it.” So if you don’t want to carry last night’s dinner around your thighs, your best bet is to stick with organic fruits and vegetables.
