There is no bad fruit or vegetable.
Avoid all processed food, including deli lunch meat. Condiments are fine.
Try to buy organic as often as possible. Please see my post about that.
Take the time to pepare your meals and carry a cooler everywhere you go. Yes, I am serious.
The most important thing I can tell you is to eat an adequate amount every three to four hours. Do not go hungry- it will inevitably lead to bad food choices, and/or overeating. Most people can only process less than 500 calories at a time; anything extra will be stored as FAT. So watch your portion sizes- read the labels!
Great website, Liz! Its unfortunate that Chicago-style deep dish pizza did not make you food list, but I continue to believe that it is the nutritional food of the future.
Will see you soon,
Great food list! I will print it and keep it on my fridge so that I take it to the grocery store every time I go shopping. Keep the great ideas coming.
