Learning to balance your meals is the first step.

Add more vegetables and fruits to your plate, limit red meats and add more beans, chickpeas, lentils and grains. If you are lactose intolerant, choose products that do not contain lactose but have calcium.

Eating healthy is not about counting calories or subtracting components from your food. It's about eating balanced.

How to Eat Healthy

Eating a healthy, balanced diet plays an essential role in maintaining a healthy weight, which is an important part of overall good health. Being overweight or obese can lead to health conditions such as type 2 diabetes, certain cancers, heart disease and stroke. Being underweight could also affect your health.
