Diet Tips for Success

A Simple Guideline For Healthy Eating

Foods to Seek Out

Animal Proteins
It's great for you! Focus on lean proteins like fish and chicken, but don't be scared to eat lean cuts of beef or other animals either.

Good Carbohydrates
Many fruits and vegetables offer your body a clean source of carbs that will give you proper energy, without the crash. Many of these will also give your body the fiber it needs to operate smoothly and efficiently. Also, eat foods with high potassium, like dark and leafy greens, avocados and bananas. These fruits and vegetables are great sources of plant phytochemicals, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Eating these, along with things like nuts and green tea, will help boost your immune system, and will help balance out the natural chemicals your body needs to operate at its optimum level.

Healthy Fats
While you want to avoid saturated fats, small amounts of some fats are okay, and some fats are even beneficial. A controlled amount of monounsaturated, polyunsaturated, is allowable. Everything in moderation, though. You also want to seek out the healthy omega 3 and omega 6 fats.

Foods to Avoid

Sodium

Focus on foods with a low sodium content. That also means don't add any sodium to your foods. Don't pick up that salt shaker!

Some of the more typical carbohydrates (where possible). Grains, starchy tubers and refined sugars can be very damaging to your body.

As you may have noticed, there are many more options for you to eat than there are things you have to avoid. So go, be healthy, and enjoy!
