A Healthy Diet

  • A healthy diet is one that provides you with enough calories to sustain your bodily functions.
  • It allows you to be active and alert so that you can enjoy the activities that you like to undertake on a day to day basis.
  • It is one that you can follow for the rest of your life, not on a temporary basis while you lose weight.
  • You should take pleasure on what you eat, you should be able to savor sinful treats every so often as long as you are not allergic to them.
  • A good diet should provide you with good amounts and quantities of macronutrients (carbohydrates, fats, protein, water) and micronutrients (vitamin and minerals) to repair and rebuild damaged tissue and to fuel up your metabolic needs.

Other considerations

  • The health food industry, though initially well-intentioned, also responds to economics laws. One should not take anything from a health food store no matter how reputable with blind faith. Read labels!
  • Organic laws vary from state to state, federal research has found no more nutrition and slightly lower pesticide and chemical content in organic food. Try it objectively and decide. (I find organic food to have better taste, though). A more expensive item is not necessarily better. Try new things, but do not discard what’s readily available to you .
  • Finally, most importantly of all, no matter how nutritious the food in the items you choose, a great diet is no good if you are dissociated from your body cues. Do not allow your mood, stress, thirst or any other cue guide your food habits. Let hunger guide your eating. If you do so, you will always be at a healthy weight.
