Simply healthy: Hi AMonroe, The good news is that you don't any specific diet restrictions. Aim to stay in a healthy weight range with a BMI of 20-25. Choose fresh foods, eat plenty of vegetables and moderate amounts of fruits. The majority of your nutrient breakdown should be protein and carbs. Fats should be more omega-3s if possible. Stay active, sleep well. Hope this helps.
