Over weeks and months …you will get addicted to the awesome taste of healthy food…and start wondering why you never did it earlier!”Anonymous
Welcome to HFO! Healthy Foods Only is a modern solution to the prevalent lifestyle-induced problems, such as obesity, malnutrition, type-2 diabetes, stroke, and heart diseases. While we acknowledge the existence of other etiological factors, we also support the existing scientific studies that point to poor dietary choices as being a primary cause of declining population health. This site aims at promoting welfare by providing advice and recommendations about healthy foods, weight loss tips, and general healthy living.
Obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.”Michael Jordan
Proper nutrition is one of the most fundamental things on which anyone’s healthy and happy life can be based. If you want to radically change your being for the better, to feel satisfied about who you are, or to look…attractive no matter what age is stated in your passport, start with changing unhealthy eating habits to healthy ones —and make them your favorites.Sahara Sanders, Slim And Healthy You
More importantly, we acknowledge that health is not necessarily the absence of disease. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), health refers to a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. As such, Health Foods Only is committed to helping you form a habit of finding, preparing, and eating wholesome and nourishing meals that will promote your physical, mental, and social welfare.
Moreover, HFO also lists the best weight loss gear, gadgets, supplements, guides, recipes, and ingredients for people who want to save the time and stress of figuring out what to buy. Whatever sort of thing you need, we make shopping for it easy by telling you the best one to get. Consider our reviews as a best-of list for weight loss items, a curated gallery filled with only interesting, useful objects.
So you focus on only the best things?
We look for what we think is best for most people. We don’t look for the most feature-packed gadget, or the finest finishes, or highest nutritional value. We pick the things that will fit best into the lives of everyday people who are shopping for it—and that’s what takes work. These are the same gadgets we’d recommend to our friends and family, and these are the same things we’d choose for ourselves.
Do your affiliate commissions make you biased?
If readers choose to buy the products we recommend as a result of our research, analysis, interviews, and testing, our work is often (but not always) supported through an affiliate commission from the retailer when they make a purchase. If readers return their purchases because they’re dissatisfied or the recommendation is bad, we make nothing. There’s no incentive for us to pick inferior products or respond to pressure from manufacturers—in fact, it’s quite the opposite. We think that’s a pretty fair system that keeps us committed to serving our readers first.
The most important thing to us is the trust we have from readers. If we were to recommend something because we are biased or lazy, readers like you wouldn’t support our work. We also invite you to fact-check our pieces, which carefully outline the time, logic, and energy spent researching, interviewing experts, and testing the gear. Often, this takes dozens—sometimes even hundreds—of hours. Each guide plainly lays out all the evidence for why we made our picks so you can judge for yourself.
What if the thing I want isn’t on your site?
Email or tweet at us to let us know if you need help figuring out a particular buying problem. Our staff—made of smart and curious people who love to investigate reader questions—may be able to help.
