Healthy Diet

Myth: In order to be fit you have to eat a specific way. Fact: There is no such thing as “the right way to eat”. Your body responds to the foods you eat in different ways and the best way to address your health is to learn what foods are healthy for you.

You probably already know that good eating habits is the key to good health, and that eating whole foods, fruits, vegetables and drinking plenty of water helps you to maintain a healthy diet.
