Three rules for healthy eating
By: Judy Davie
We all know there are a lot of rules or, as they are more leniently referred to as guidelines, for eating a healthy diet, but what if there were only three you had to stick to; three rules passed (and prosecuted on if not adhered to) for healthy eating? This was a conversation I had with a group of friends over breakfast yesterday. After some angst and deliberation these were my three. Eat five serves of vegetables a day.
Cut out all soft drinks and diet soft drinks altogether.
Cut out all white processed carbohydrates.
When I asked Naturopath Lisa Costa-Bir what her three rules would be, she, like I had done the day before struggled with her list. After great debate she came up with her list.
Drink enough water each day so your urine is clear and not smelly.
Eat foods that looks as close to their natural state as possible i.e. wholefoods.
Eat at least five serves of various seasonal vegetables in season a day.
Dr Joanna McMillan had similar issues narrowing down her three but finally came up these.
Minimise the amount of processed carbohydrates in your diet.
Fill half your plate with veggies at lunch and dinner
Never drink soft drinks
Would anyone else like to have a go?
