Extreme Healthy Eating Explained, Molly Kimball, Registered Dietitian

The fundamentals to healthy eating: Enjoy plant-based foods whenever possible. Limit added sugars and white carbs, and choose lean proteins, lots of vegetables and some fruits (especially antioxidant-rich berries, which are higher fiber and lower in sugar than most fruit). It is important that your diet fit your lifestyle, taste preferences, budget and schedule.

One benefit of these popular diets and challenges is that they provide an opportunity to replace not-so-good habits with better-for-you behavior. They can remind you to make conscious and healthy choices for yourself. Read more about Molly’s take on The Whole30 Program and The Keto Diet.
