Do you wish there was a list of foods someone could give you that detailed exactly what you should eat to lose weight, build muscle and cut fat? I am sure everyone does. But that is where the problem lies. Healthful eating does not start and stop with such boundaries.

Getting the most out of the foods you eat may not always be easy, especially in the winter months. A daily multivitamin compliments a diet that may be lacking some essential nutrients. Always choose a multivitamin that is age and sex appropriate. This is because all ages have different demands for a variety of vitamins and minerals.

 As a general rule of thumb, the majority of foods that you eat should consist of fruits and vegetables. The closer the food is to its natural form the more readily available those nutrients will be when the body beings its processing. For example, jellies and jams are typically a blend of the fruit and its juices mixed with sugar and food dyes. Using a whole fruit spread or simply taking a fork to your favorite fruits would provide you with the most benefit.
