Consume food from natural and/or organic sources when possible.women-kitchen

  1. Pay attention to protein intake. Seafood, beef, nuts, and beans are best choices.
  2. Choose foods with healthy fats; limit foods high in saturated fat. Avoid foods with trans fat. Plant oils (olive oil), nuts (flaxseed), and fish (sea bass, perch, red snapper) are the healthiest sources.
  3. Choose a fiber-filled diet rich in whole grains, vegetables, and fruits.
  4. Choose good carbs, not no carbs.
  5. Calcium intake is important. Okra, almonds, collard greens, spinach, kelp, broccoli, sesame seeds, and celery are best sources.
  6. Drink water to quench thirst. Skip sugary drinks (including 100 percent fruit juices), milk (including flavored), or sweetened teas. You may drink one to two cups 100-percent fruit juice as part of daily fruit consumption, but only if freshly squeezed.
  7. Consume less salt. Choose more fresh foods, fewer processed foods.
  8. A daily multivitamin with vitamins C, complex B, and K may add an extra health boost.
  9. A daily probiotic supplement restores the balance of microflora, contributing to immune function. Discuss options with a practitioner familiar with probiotics.
