The other day one of my patients asked me what my “rules for eating” were as we discussed diet. I think we all have to make our own rules.
The things I hope my patients would think about as far as what to eat include:
Eat foods that occur naturally, like real meats and fresh fruits and vegetables
Make as much as you can at home which will help you avoid preservatives
Eat the best food you can
When you make changes, make them count. It doesn’t help to switch to organic oatmeal if you never eat oatmeal. Make choices that offer a lot of payout.
Remember no two people or two families will make the same choices
Certainly this isn’t an optimal rules for eating, but it offers some guidelines to help patients who are working towards a better diet.
