    The Best Nutrition Tips are The Basics
    Henry S Lodge, MD posted:
    When I talk to my patients about nutrition, my message is pretty simple. Saturated fats, starches, and sugar are bad for you if you eat too much of them.

    Red meat and dairy products are the main sources of saturated fat. So be sure to limit how much of these foods you eat. Instead, eat more white meats like chicken and fish. But don't be fooled into thinking that's all you need to do. Your body was designed to run on a mixed diet. While you're cutting your portions of meat, fill in the gaps with more healthy fruits, vegetables, and whole grains

    You might have a hard time limiting your starch intake. In this case, it might be easier to stay away from starches all together. Try to avoid breads and pastas -- just for a few weeks -- and see how you feel.

    I know this isn't very exciting advice. But the basics remain the best.
