HIGH FIVE
The Canadian Cancer Society and the Heart Fund say that we need to eat at least five servings of fruits and vegetables a day. But Nutritionists have always said we need 9-10 servings a day. The truth is that lots and lots of fruits and vegetables will make you feel full and help you feel full and help you lose weight by replacing high-calorie foods. The reason why we need to eat so many fruits and vegetables is because they alkalize our blood and tissues. All other foods that we eat make our bodies acidic. Nutrients need to be in an alkaline environment for the body to be able to utilize them. A slightly alkaline pH is most important. We don't want acids building up in the blood, tissues, joints, arteries, skin, nerves, etc. Our biochemistry needs to be alkaline.

EAT THE RAINBOW
While you are enjoying those fruits and vegetables, notice their beautiful colors. The ripest, most vitamin-rich and antioxidant-rich foods are the most colourful. When you look down on your plate, you should mostly see bright colors. These colors of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple from fruits and vegetables make up a rainbow of great energy and nutrients. Try to eat from each color group daily for optimum health and weight stabalization.

LOOK AT YOUR PLATE
Look down at your plate of food. You should see more vegetables on it than the other foods. Divide your plate into quadrants. Your protein should take up one quadrant, your starch, another quadrant, and your vegetables the other two quadrants. If you want seconds, best to have more vegetables.

EAT HEALTHY FATS
The fact is that fat is necessary for human health and it contributes greatly to a sense of fullness. Researchers actually found that people who ate moderate fat diets were able to lose as much weight and keep it off longer than those who stuck to a low-fat diet. But the quality and type of fat is important. Bad fats are processed fats. Look for cold-pressed, raw oils. They could be olive oil, flax oil, walnut oil, safflower oil and coconut oil as long as they meet this criteria. Sprinkle these raw oils on your foods after cooking. Fry only with Macadamia Nut oil. It is the very best cooking oil as it has a very high smoke point. This means that it has a high tolerance to temperature before it gets destroyed. Eat small amounts of butter. Keep your fat intake to about 25% of your total calories. Keep these oils, including your butter, in the refrigerator.
