EAT REAL FOOD. NOT TOO MUCH AND MOSTLY PLANTS.
I tell all my clients: exercise will help control your weight, combat diseases, improve your mood, boost your energy and promote better sleep. However, your diet will truly change the way you look and feel. You can have a great six pack under a layer of bad food choices. I'm not a fan of 'fad diets' - I believe in moderation and finding what works for you and most important - it's SUSTAINABLE. I love food, wine and dessert - and remind myself constantly about moderation. I look at it as a challenge (and I love a good challenge!). If it wasn't challenging we'd all be fit and healthy. :)
I am trying to be a better cook. I want to make cooking and eating enjoyable for my entire family. Almost everything I make is 6 ingredients or less, easy and devoured by my family and friends. Some you can freeze for later, too.
And I always choose organic and/or local when possible. CHEERS!
