What should you be eating?
Before I started focusing on a healthy diet, I thought I knew what wasn’t good for me.
What I learned surprised me. The stuff that I thought was healthy was just as bad as the unhealthy foods. In fact, they were worse because they disguised themselves as “good for you” foods.
I’ve listed some basic guidelines and the recommended amounts of what we should be consuming.
