Health Tip: Eat Healthier

By on June 1, 2016

The old adage that “you are what you eat” is true, nutrition experts say.

Here are suggestions for better eating, courtesy of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics:

  • Avoid diets that focus on avoiding one thing, such as sugar or fat.
  • Eat more vegetables, fruits, beans, nuts, seafood, low-fat dairy and whole grains. Reduce consumption of refined grains, desserts, sweetened beverages, processed meat and red meat.
  • Fill one-fourth of your plate with whole grains, one-fourth with lean proteins, and the remaining half with fruit and veggies.
  • Make sure you’re eating appropriate portion sizes. Choose healthier unsaturated fats.
  • Limit added sugars, such as those often found in desserts, coffee, tea or yogurt.
