Nutrition advice swings like a pendulum. It’s no wonder we’re confused. But if we block out the noise from fad diets, TV’s “biggest losers,” and studies paid for by biased industry groups, and listen to current, sound medical advice, here’s what we should be eating: lots of vegetables and fruits, whole grains, beans, nuts, fish, lean poultry, and a moderate amount of healthy fats. Drink water and other unsweetened beverages. Go wild with herbs and spices to make food taste good. Variety is important as is moderation.
