When it comes to food, E.R physician Dr. Travis Stork is the first to admit that he doesn’t like diets. “Over 90 percent of people will put the weight back on,” he says. “Diets don’t work. Diets are not the answer. It’s about a lifestyle.”
Ask yourself four simple questions before you choose the food on your plate:
1. Is it delicious?
2. Is it healthy?
3. How will I feel 30 minutes from now?
4. Will a steady diet of this make me healthy 10 years from now?
If you answer no to any of these, don’t eat it! Indulge in healthy foods like vegetables, fruits, nuts, fish and whole grains. Avoid excess sodium, sugars, fats and processed foods.
