Important points that you should know (Emily Bollinger)

Important fact: It is a myth that you should never eat saturated fats. Fats (even saturated) are a necessary part of your diet.

What should be included in your healthy diet?

~55-65% carbs

~30% fats

~10-15% protein

~6 cups of water

~Breakfast is VERY important: first meal of the day, gets metabolism going, and it wakes up your brain

~Eat 4-6 times a day!!! Keep that metabolism working all day

~Watch your sugar intake... you don't need that much

~Please cut back on the salt, it's not good for your heart

~And if you MUST eat out, then choose a meal with LITTLE TO NO saturated fats
