All of the info about what to eat and what not to eat is so confusing and contradictory. Is there an easier way to know what to eat to lose weight?

Eating healthy isn’t complicated, but people make it complicated. If you try to eat food that’s as close to its natural state as possible, and choose foods that don’t comes with a list of ingredients (especially ones you can’t pronounce) you are likely to make healthy choices.

Remember real food doesn’t need a label, it doesn’t last forever, it doesn’t have to make all sorts of nutritional claims with sneaky wording and it isn’t created in a lab somewhere. I believe in simplifying what you eat, and staying flexible in your mindset. And that’s why I consider myself to be a flexitarian, which means I eat a diet that primarily consists of plant-based foods, but also eat eggs and occasionally poultry and fish. We have the whole spectrum in my house. My sons fall in the carnivore camp (lol) and my daughter is a vegan, eliminating all animal products from her diet.

Whether you are a vegan, carnivore or somewhere in between, one of the healthiest things EVERYONE can do for their diets is to eat a plant-heavy diet.  Hundreds of studies indicate that diets high in fruits and vegetables can help prevent several types of cancer. Lean your food choices toward real and you will be taking control of your diet and your health!
