Elements of Healthy StyleHealth Rule
Eat well. Get your nutrition -including naturally occurring vitamins and minerals – from real, whole food that is as close to nature as possible. Don’t trust anything that comes out of a blender, juicer, or glass jar. Buy frozen fruits and vegetables or “fresh flash-frozen” over what many supermarkets sell as just fresh. It’s hard to summarize nutritional recommendations in a list, but below is a list of general recommendations. Understanding the complex nature of nutrition is a more important principle, but lists can be helpful tools:
2. Eat on a regular schedule – it doesn’t matter how many meals, just regular timing. No snacking. (You’ll learn the importance of maintaining such strict regularity shortly.)
3. Eat cold-water fish a minimum of three times per week (e.g., salmon, sardines, tuna, rainbow trout, anchovies, herring, halibut, cod, black cod, mahimahi, etc.).
Exception: It’s better to avoid fish than to consume any fish that is not recommended by SeafoodWatch.org, which keeps a running record of safe, ocean-friendly seafood.
4. Choose a multicolo(u)red diet.
5. Drink red wine (one glass a night) five nights per week – unless you’re at high risk for breast cancer.
6. Eat a good-fat diet – not a low-fat diet.
7. Read Michael Pollan’s In Defense of Food – it’s the best book on food.
