Although I try to eat healthy, I don't always eat the best kind of foods lol :P Anyway, here's a quick list of some eating do's and dont's when it comes to the food groups you should be eating daily.
Eat 3-5 servings per day.
DO: Include atleast one serving of raw, leafy greens.
DON'T: Overload a salad with dressing, croutons, bacon bits, etc. This detracts the nutritional value of the actual salad.
Eat 2-3 servings per day.
DO: Eat atleast 1/2 cup of chopped or sliced fruits; this is one serving.
DON'T: Eat only jello with fruits in it, or fruit cups, etc. These are often full of added ingredients that make it taste better, but do not constitute a serving.
Eat THREE 3-ounce servings a day, try to make 2 servings turkey or chicken. One serving of fish per day is ideal.
DO: Cut off ALL fat!
DON'T: Eat MORE than THREE 3-ounce servings of meat per day.
Eat 2 servings daily.
DO: Have 8-ounces of milk or yogurt; this is one serving.
DON'T: Eat ONLY icecream, cheese, flavored yogurt, or flavored milk! These are often full of added ingredients that are sweet but fattening.
DO: Eat ONLY 2 servings a day (things like salad dressing, cooking oil, butter, mayonaisse, etc).
DON'T: Over-eat junk food, fast food, sweets, or desserts! These are full of fats and oils and may taste good, but are not always good for you.
