Poor nutrition: You cannot undo your prior choices but you can concentrate on your future choices. Remember, the body has a miraculous ability to compensate for some unfavorable insults that we incur.

Eat right, be active, get a good amount of sleep. 5-7 fruits and vegetables a day is recommended from the government. Avoid more than 10% of your diet as saturated fats. Eat lean proteins, in variety, moderation and balance
