Healthy Diet Plan and Obesity Statistics by State


Search by Keyword



Some say the best Healthy Diet Plan is Intuitive Eating.


Many experts agree that an intuitive diet is best for the average healthy person. People who develop intuitive eating habits end up consuming more fresh fruits and vegetables, less fried food, less sugar, less fat and fewer carbs (bread, pasta, potatoes and rice) than people who rigidly stick to specific diets.


The good news is that most foods are healthy in small, occasional portions.
