The US government shows how to eat your favorite foods to be healthy!

March is Nutrition Month 2013 is that there’s no one way to eat healthy.

However, there are some simple dietary guidelines that Health.gov recommends everyone follow:

  • Balance calorie intake with physical activity: If you move less, eat less.
  • Eat more of the right foods: fruits and vegetables, whole grains (like brown rice, oatmeal, whole-grain bread, and popcorn), seafood, and low-fat dairy foods.
  • Reduce your intake of refined grains, trans fat, saturated fat, added salt and sugar, and cholesterol.
  • Replace some of the sugary drinks in your diet with water.

HealthyBut following these guidelines doesn't have to mean a complete overhaul of your diet. Just choose healthier versions of some of the foods you already love and add more fruits and veggies to go with them.
