DIET (five-a-day and good fats!)

Eat five servings of fruits and vegetables each day.

Replace bad fats with good fats. Avoid foods high in saturated (bad) fat on most days (eat red meat and whole milk dairy servings on 3 or fewer days per week).

Replace bad fats with unsaturated (good) fats from fish and vegetables whenever possible (examples: eat avocado instead of sour cream; eat almonds instead of packaged snacks with trans-fats).

Replace processed snacks with fruits and vegetables and natural nuts.

Replace sugar drinks and candy with sweet alternatives such as diet drinks and dried fruit. Use artificial sweeteners if it helps you cut back on sugary foods.
