This living plan puts to use the quote by Aristotle: "everything in moderation". It is something that American society seems to have forgotten in recent years. If you do eat things that are bad for you, eat small amounts. Try to follow portion sizes-- they are in place for a reason! If you are on a diet that does not permit you to eat certain things, find appropriate supplements. In regards to exercise, try to get at least two (2) thirty (30)- minute sessions in a week. If you eat more unhealthy things that week, exercise more. The goal of this lifestyle is to be balanced in your intake of vitamins and minerals, fruits, vegetables, carbohydrates, proteins, and even sugars and fats.
Current accepted portion sizes: One serving of meat is three (3) to five (5) ounces, or about the size of a deck of cards. One serving of cooked carbohydrates should take up the area of the your hand. Vegetables and fruits are around the same. Fatty products, such as cheese, should only be about one half (1/2) to one (1) ounces.
Watch your caloric intake, and try to take in only about two thousand (2,000) to two thousand and five hundred (2,500) calories a day.
