The best choice you can make is to eat foods the way they appear in nature. You should choose fresh foods over canned or frozen foods, and natural unrefined foods over more processed foods. For example, vegetables, potatoes, fruit, rice, and oatmeal are less processed and more nutrient dense than crackers, enriched bread, pretzels, or bagels. Remember the "acid-test" question for whether a food is natural or not: "Did this food come out of the ground or off the tree/plant this way?"

Indeed, it’s not uncommon to overhear people talking about their struggles or triumphs over the holiday bulge or love handles in terms of whether their metabolism is working, or not.
