DIET – What comes to mind when you think about the word “diet”?

Like most people you may automatically think of the word diet to mean some kind of food restriction or program to lose weight. As a registered dietitian/nutritionist the word diet to me just simply what foods one eats.

I googled the definition of diet and this is what popped up:

noun: diet

1. the kinds of food that a person, animal, or community habitually eats.
“a vegetarian diet

2. a special course of food to which one restricts oneself, either to lose weight or for medical reasons.

Whittle Your Waistline

You don’t have to give into mother nature. You can keep your waistline as you enter into peri-menopause or menopause. Four important factors are:

  1. Choose the right foods including plenty of lean proteins (lean meats, fish, poultry, non-fat dairy, legumes and other plant proteins), 5-9 servings of a variety of colorful veggies and fruits, and include 2-3 servings of whole grains daily such as steel-cut oats, stone ground corn, whole wheat, brown rice and quinoa. Skip the refined starches and sugars that hide in so many processed and fast foods, baked goods and sweetened beverages.
