Eat 80% real foods (whole foods, nutrient-dense): whole grains, vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds, some quality animal protein.
Make the other 20% the best of the rest – meaning the unhealthy food options.
Eat them as close to their natural state, meaning choosing raw over steamed over fried. And when in doubt, eat the rainbow – meaning a variety of colorful vegetables and fruits!
A – Adjust Portions Sizes – eat slowly and in smaller plates and refill if needed.
