Tip of the Day

Spot a Faulty Fad Diet

No carbs? No fat? Any fad diet or extreme weight loss plan that requires cutting complete food groups out of your nutrition plan will not provide you with the proper nutrition you need. Despite the fact that they claim cutting carbohydrates and fats will lead to weight loss, your body needs these nutrients to stay healthy. In fact, eating whole grains high in dietary fiber and healthy oils has been shown to help manage a healthy weight.

Carbohydrates

These are your body's main source of fuel. Eating whole grains that are high in dietary fiber is important in intestinal health and waste elimination. Try healthy carbohydrates like sweet potatoes, celery, peaches, beans, yogurt and whole-grain pastas, breads, cereals, and crackers.

Fats

These are essential for normal growth and development, absorbing certain vitamins and providing your body with energy. Add olive or canola oil to your salads, snack on a handful of nuts, spread nut butters on whole-wheat toast, and try cooking fatty fish two times a week.
