We have access to more nutritional information today than ever before, from magazines to the Internet to newspapers and television. But unfortunately, the resulting information overload creates more confusion than clarity when you add to the mix the hype about fad diets.
Many people are still unclear about what they should eat and think they end up believing that good nutrition is complicated!
Throughout the year, we will demystify the essentials of intelligent nutrition. First, we will identify the nine most critical nutritional issues that affect how we eat. And we've put together information from the top nutrition, public health, culinary, and food marketing authorities to help guide us in translating complex science into real-world knowledge that you can use. Finally, we will share their strategies to bring smart nutrition to your plate. Here's a preview of the nine topics we're going to cover:
#1: Eat smart, be fit, and live longer.
Eat a predominantly plant-based diet that provides a healthy fat balance, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and high-quality protein sources low in saturated fat. And finally, exercise daily. Activity balances the calories consumed, helping to keep your weight in check.
#2: Choose the carbs that satisfy you and utilize them to your advantage
