So what are the things you should eat and not eat? How can you maintain a healthy diet?
Tip 1: Limit your intake of processed foods

So, try as much as you can to limit your intake of processed foods, if you want to eat healthy.
Tip 2: Increase your intake of fruits and vegetables
Fruits and vegetables are rich in vitamins that help build the body. Their place in your diet cannot be emphasized enough. Try to integrate fruits and vegetables into your meal plan every day. You can do this by making smoothies, adding vegetables to your meals, or just taking the fruits plain.
Tip 3: Eliminate Soda, Drink Water
