To your car, gasoline is energy. To your body, food is fuel.
An orange contains potential energy, which we call calories, as
does a doughnut. But the orange is nutrient-dense, while the
doughnut is just energy-dense.
To increase your nutrition-to-energy ratio:
Foods to eat daily: Fruits, whole grains, nuts, carrots, leafy
greens and green tea.
Food to eat three times a week: Broccoli, avocado, sweet
potatoes, oily fish, yogurt.
Foods to eat just once a week: Red meat, pasta, all desserts and
Do not eat: Fast food, soda pop, processed meals, canned soups
and anything with the word "diet" in it.
