Diet & Fitness

Good Diet for Staying FitFruits and vegetables are typically some of the most nutritious foods you can consume; they’re loaded with vitamins, minerals, and free radical fighting .But you’ll want to know where your product came from before you take a bite – many are loaded with pesticides, herbicides, and other chemicals you probably don’t want in your body.

One way to tell if your produce is organic is to look at the code on the product. Organic products are five digits long and start with the number 9. Conventional products are four digits long and start with the number 4. So an apple labeled 93525 would be organic, whereas one labeled 4878 would be conventional. Organic food is typically much higher in nutrients, sometimes as much as ten times more than those treated with chemicals.
