Dr. Geo’s 12 easy steps to eating healthy



This morning at a parent function at my daughters school, a group of daddy’s were hanging around talking about how difficult and confusing it is to eat healthy. On my way back I thought about this and thought they were right. Diets almost all the times confuse people and are unsustainable.  I figured I’d post these 12 easy ways to eat healthy and hope to demystify some of the confusion. Bon Appetit!

  1. Don’t eat ANY food with guilt
  2. If your grandmother doesn’t or wouldn’t recognize the food, it’s probably NOT A FOOD.
  3. If insects or bugs would not eat it, it’s probably not good for you
  4. If the food takes a long time to spoil or it doesn’t spoil, it’s not the best for you.
  5. If the ingredients list is more than 4 unpronounceable words, it is probably JUNK. Best foods have just one word as an ingredient, e.g. broccoli, tomatoes, etc.
  6. Limit ALL sugars, fruit juices and white flour as much as possible
  7. If eating anything that had a face and a heart beat, make sure they ate their natural diet e.g. Cattle eat grass and hay NOT corn or grains.
  8. Drink 6 to 8 glasses of CLEAN water a day.
  9. Portion control – it’s OK to leave food on your plate – your mom will never know.
  10. Eat some kind of GREEN food with every meal – it helps with digestion, its loaded with nutrients and important plant chemicals – some even fight cancer.
  11. Forget diets of exclusion – low-fat this, low-carb that, low- sugar the other. If you are going to have ice cream, have the real thing. The fake stuff is more damaging.
  12. Buy and eat foods from LOCAL FARMS, FARMERS MARKETS, HEALTH FOOD STORES and REGULAR MARKETS– in that order.


Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
