First and foremost, we believe that all foods have a place and can fit into a healthy, balanced diet. In general, we recommend eating a balance of fruits, vegetables, lean protein foods, nonfat or low-fat dairy products, and whole grains, the majority of the time. While the journey to weight loss is complex and different for each individual, a great place for information on general healthy eating recommendations is ChooseMyPlate.gov. MyPlate, a visual meal-planning tool offered through ChooseMyPlate.gov, helps ensure you are getting a proper balance of these nutritious foods.
Finally, a diet rich in plant-based foods has proven effective for individuals who are trying to lose weight. Please remember there is no such thing as a "one size fits all" diet. We are here to help you find healthful options.
