Protein is essential for healing wounds and injuries.

There are two kinds of carbs: complex and simple. Complex carbs contain more fiber and take longer to digest compared to simple carbs which are converted to energy more quickly.

Dieters ruminate on food and eating more often than non-dieters.

The Environmental Working Group, a nonprofit organization in Washington, DC, recommends going organic on produce that is most susceptible to pesticide residue, like peaches.

Diet ads are everywhere in various forms of media suggesting that they have the “cure” for any body issue.

As a general rule of thumb, if a diet sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

Avocados are loaded with dietary fiber, potassium, magnesium, and folate, and vitamins B6, C, E, and K. This fruit is an excellent source of good-for-you monounsaturated fat. But an average-sized avocado has about 227 calories. To be extra careful, wash the skin before cutting into it.

An excellent source of vitamins C and K, a medium kiwifruit contains about 46 calories. Pineapple is a great source of vitamin C and manganese. One cup of the fruit has about 74 calories. Scrub and peel the skins of these fruits before enjoying the sweet flesh.

Good sources of fat (unsaturated): Raw or roasted nuts, Avocado, Oils- Olive, Canola, Walnut, Flaxseed, Sunflower, or Safflower, Nut butters- Almond, Peanut.

Kids tend to eat a lot of peanut butter, and peanut butter made from just organic peanuts and salt is better than conventional peanut butter with added hydrogenated oils and sugar. The natural oils in organic peanut butter may separate and form a layer on top of the jar. If so, just stir it all up so it's creamy again.
