Ideally, your plate should be two-thirds vegetables and one-third good quality protein. Get some good fats, like those found in olive oil, coconut, nuts and avocado and don’t be a bread-head. If you are a soda-drinker (including diet) or packaged cake-gobbler, please understand you are making a poor investment in diet and health and you are actively pursuing the list of dreadful diseases mentioned earlier. You can change and enjoy real food just as much. It can take time and courage, but you can do it.
Perhaps the best, most succinct healthy diet advice I’ve ever seen appears on the cover of Michael Pollan’s book, “In Defense of Food,” “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.” Bon appétit!
