Food Rules

“What kind of food should I eat?”

Nutrition expert Michael Pollan provides a simple answer to that question that is worth memorizing:

“Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.”

Let’s unpack each part of this advice:

  1. Eat food — Be a nutrition hunter: Look for real food and avoid processed stuff.
  2. Not too much — Stop eating when you’re about 80 percent full, and you’ll avoid over-eating.
  3. Mostly plants — Eat a lot of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, legumes, nuts, and seeds.

If you follow these simple guidelines, you’ll help your body stay energized, strong, and healthy.
