Quick Nutrition Tips

Eating healthy simplified:

1. It’s more important what you DON’T EAT than what you DO EAT.

MORE: vegetables and fruit

LESS: caffeine, sugar, and junk food

2.  When shopping at the grocery store, buy products with 5 INGREDIENTS OR LESS


*I don’t recommend dairy but the product name FIVE for “five ingredients” was too good to not post


3. Whenever possible buy and eat FOOD (live, fresh plants, seeds, nuts or animals) rather than FOOD PRODUCTS (usually in a box or plastic processed with lots of ingredients, additives, and chemicals)


4. PRACTICE reading nutrition labels: 4 grams of sugar equals one teaspoon.  12oz can coke has 39 grams of sugar, therefore almost 10 teaspoons of sugar.


5. Get enough sleep, exercise, and drink plenty of water (preferably filtered).


Finally, check out the book, “How Not to Die” for hilarious and evidence-based nutrition advice. Just reading chapter 15, “How Not to Die from Iatrogenic Causes” (How Not to Die from doctors) is worth your time…and it just might SAVE YOUR LIFE.

    Dear Mandy,

    Your searching is a fantastic sign (despite your frustration after 6 hours!) about your determination to find what you seek. Sometimes what is most lacking to get where we need to go, be it our food goals or otherwise, is the ability/strength to keep on trying. Please let me know if there is anything that I can do to assist your healing journey!
