Don’t eat healthy foods.

Eat a healthy diet.

Eating a few healthy foods, does not make up for an overall poor diet.

You can easily overdo healthy foods, and take in way too many calories.

As a dietitian, I have often heard people say that they eat lots of healthy foods. That’s often the problem. They are eating enough for six healthy people.

For example, a heaping bowl of unsweetened oatmeal (2 cups, cooked) can be the equivalent of 4 slices of bread. That’s a lot of calories if your overall daily routine is sedentary.

Before starting on a new plan, many of my clients have been drinking tons of juice, eating heaping portions of berries, or overdoing high calorie salads.

Get a plan. Get the right amount of calories. Choose healthy foods, according to your plan and calorie needs.
