Learn What’s REALLY hiding in your food? Expert explains how to read nutrition labels
Eating healthy means consuming whole foods in their most natural state, and avoiding anything processed. Therefore learn as much as you can about the food you eat. Choose food that comes from plants—vegetables, fruits, beans, lentils, peas and whole grains. Buy meat that is grass-fed and don’t drink your calories. Water is the best way to keep your body hydrated.
Remember that healthy eating is not about depriving yourself of the foods you love. Rather, it’s about feeling great, having more energy and maintaining your weight and health.
