​How to eat correctly


Many of us at some point in our lives consider our dietary habits trying to change or improve our lifestyles and choose good food habits. However, our lack of sufficient knowledge often leads us into a state of inertia, not knowing what to do or how to do it. We are constantly baffled by the bombardment of nutritional messages that are seemingly complex. Despite the information explosion many of us still don't understand the simplest basics of good nutrition. We want to understand the basics. The general public is asking, "How do I eat healthy?". We want to know what to do and how to do it. We want simple answers to sensible nutrition.​
