Eat healthy!  What does this mean???  As always, my advice is to eat real food.  If you can identify every item of food on your plate by proper name, then chances are, it is real.  First and foremost, steer clear from the packaged and refined foods as much as possible aka if the only work that dinner requires is opening the box and nuking your "food", then a plan B might be in order.  Another great indication of whether your food is real or not is to read the label of ingredients.  If there are many names that you do not recognize or cannot pronounce then there is a heavy possibility that you might not be ingesting the necessary nutrients needed for your day.  Do please remember though to empower yourself by doing some detective work.  We are in the age of technology so take your little hand-held device and do some Google~ing of those monstrous words in order to decipher if these are ingredients you want to put in your body. 

Another clue to healthy eating is to consume a ton of fresh fruits and veggies.  These gems of nutrition will provide sustenance and are low in calories.  They will also fill you up and, hopefully, prevent you from reaching for another pint of ice cream.  Additional items on the menu should include: whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats.

These are the fundamentals of healthy eating.  If you are just beginning on your journey to optimum health and are interested to learn a few basic rules check out: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/02/04/rules-for-healthy-eating_n_4675842.html?utm_hp_ref=food&ir=Food.  If you are a veteran in the world of healthy living, congratulations, keep up the good work, and continue to enjoy the sweet rewards of proper digestion, good heart health, weight management, and an abundance of energy.
