4. Eat good for you fats - extra virgin olive oil and omega 3, 7, and 9 fatty acids. Omega 3 is found in fish and walnuts, Omega 7 is found in salmon, olives, anchovies, macadamia and sea buck-thorn oils and Omega 9 is in olives, cashews, almond, avocado, walnuts, and peanut oils.


5. Choose only 100 percent whole grains. 


6. Eat high quality protein including legumes and brown rice, salmon and ocean trout, and non-fat dairy. Avoid red and processed meats. 


7. Limit alcohol intake to one drink a day for women and two a day for men.
