    What do you consider to be proper nutrition?

    I love living a very healthy and active lifestyle, and I believe I have a good handle on what proper nutrition is and what foods to eat and what foods avoid throughout my day. I have done lots of research (both on-line, in school, and by reading several books), but I want real peoples thoughts, beliefs, and comments.

    So, I am interested in what you believe proper nutrition to be. Leave your definition of nutrition with a list of foods that you deem healthy and nutritionally dense.

    Please and thank you.

    To keep it really simple, just stick to unprocessed food. Don't eat food from boxes or cans. If it's been packaged it has a whole bunch of preservatives in it that aren't good for you. As far as the definition of nutrution, I don't really know. That's a good question. My opinion is that it's providing your body with what it needs to operate and run.

    my take on Nutrition is it is the fuel the body needs to function correctly. A mixed and varied diet consisting of all the food groups (Carbs, Protein, Vitamins, Fibre,  Good Fats). I agree with BraidedZero, avoid processes foods as much as possible. A good inclusion of foods would be - pasta, organic potatoes, free range poultry, lean red meat, tuna, prawns, mackerel, avocados, tomatoes, carrots, peppers, celery, pineapple, melons, strawberries, limes, oranges, garlic, nuts, seeds, high fibre cereals and dried fruits.
