A few basics....

Yesterday the thought was introduced in regard to what is your knowledge level on nutrition fitness etc.!

The premise was mental fitness at times trumping physical fitness and nutrition.  Here are a few building blocks....these are guidelines and there are many different guidelines but these are a few basics.

Try to eat Daily:

Fruits and Vegetables    At least 4.5 Cups
Fiber Rich Whole Grain     At least three one ounce servings

Try to eat Weekly:

Fish (Preferably oily fish like salmon or tuna)       At least two 3.5 ounce servings
Nuts and Seeds                    At least four one ounce servings

Limit These Items:

SALT     less than 1500 mg of sodium a day
Sugar      No more than 36 ounces (450 calories) of sugary beverages a week
Processed Meat     Limit to two servings a week

Again these are simply guidelines but do a quick analysis and see hwere you fall in regard to these guidelines......if you are way off you may need to make a few little tweaks to see some results!
