What do you mean there are no whole foods? If you buy produce, dairy, meats and grains, those ARE whole foods. Try to buy items that don't come with a list of ingredients. The item itself IS the ingredient. ie fruit, veggies, fish, poultry, oatmeal, whole wheat flour, etc.
I'm sure your local grocery store must sell those things... also look for whole grain breads...

That's exactly where I would start (Thanks Tia). Get the "Eat Clean Diet" book by Tosca Reno. Read it. It's a colorful book w/ plenty of pictures and it's easy and fun to read. There are even a few recipes. I haven't even been to a whole foods store. All you have to do is basically shop the perimeters of your grocery store getting your lean meats, veggies, fruits, nuts, lentils, etc. My local grocery store (Kroger) has a natural foods section and I picked up some ground flaxseed, brown rice, and some organic salad dressing. Everything else, I got from the perimeter of the store. Clean eating doesn't REQUIRE you to go to a whole foods store; however, there may be some special items that your grocery store does not carry that you may want to try. I hope this helps you get started. Also, there is a grocery list on www.eatcleandiet.com. I will try to attach the link but if it doesn't work, you know how to find it! Good luck and welcome to the team!!!! =) www.eatcleandiet.com/grocery_list/ec

I was recommended to order the book and cookbooks. Go to www.eatcleandiet.com and the info is there, or you can order from www.amazon.com. I'm just ordering my stuff, but from the website, and if you search the topics on this Team, you'll find a lot of great information. Wish you well! - Tia

Just joined this team and I have no idea where to start. I want/need to lose a large amount of weight, but just as importantly I want to be healthy. There is no Whole Foods where I live - what's the best first step? Thanks so much...
