Eating healthy and having proper diet is about feeling great, having more energy, and keeping yourself as healthy as possible. It's not about strict nutrition, staying unrealistically thin, or depriving yourself of the foods you enjoy. Healthy eating is about more than the food on your plate-it is also about how you think about food.
It is important to slow down and think about food as nourishment rather than just something to gulp down in between meetings or on the way to pick up the kids. Rather than worry about following a fad diet, think about your health and your lifestyle instead. Start by learning which foods are good for you.
