1. Drink water: Water is the most essential nutrient for cells. For added flavor, try adding fresh fruits, cucumber slices or lemon and lime wedges to ice-cold water.
2. Eat a “mixed” breakfast that includes foods containing a little carbohydrate, a little protein and a little fat. For example, eggs and a bowl of fruit or a protein shake with soy milk and a banana includes three essential macronutrients, provides energy and tastes good, too.
3. Eat less fat. The average American eats the equivalent of a stick of margarine a day, most of which is hidden in processed foods
4. Increase the amount of fiber in your diet. Fiber helps maintain colon health
1. DON’T rely on pills for nutrition. Pills cannot substitute for a whole food. Foods contain much more than just vitamins and minerals.
2. DON’T become dehydrated.
3. DON’T eat sugary foods in the morning. A burst of refined sugar on an empty stomach will trigger a flood of insulin that suppresses the immune system and feeds any abnormal cells.
