Advice For Healthy Eating

After exploring the Atkins diet, Nutrisystem, and various other diets and diet advice, this is the best diet advice I have to offer. This simple advice will keep your weight in check and ensure that you have good health and energy.


Eat mostly grilled or baked chicken and seafood and fresh or steamed vegetables and fresh fruits. Buy the best that you can afford, avoiding seafood that is high in mercury. Seriously, we buy the best pet foods for our dogs and cats. Shouldn't we make sure we are feeding ourselves the best as well?

Eat everything else in moderation. Nuts, tofu, soy milk, brown rice, cheese, eggs, yogurt, beans, chick peas, extra virgin olive oil, whole grains - especially sprouted grain breads are all good add-ons. Don't give up the dark chocolate, just keep it to one or two pieces per day. Don't give up the occasional so-called bad food because if you feel deprived you will end up going on calorie overload. Plus people who turn down even a small piece of birthday cake are a little screwed up.


Experiment with spices - rosemary is amazing on baked or grilled chicken; garam masala is delicious on grilled fish. My meals are always aesthetically pleasing and I don't have to be an expert cook to prepare them. Seriously, sometimes I pause to admire the beauty of a colorful plate of steamed veggies, the oranges, greens, yellows or reds, and the golden grilled fish or chicken beside it. Think of how blessed you are to be able to eat healthful food. Why eat heavily processed junk with ingredients our grandparents would never have heard of?

Obviously, if you have food allergies or special dietary needs, you have to adjust accordingly.
