Eat wisely!: You need to eat a balanced diet of lean protein, plenty of vegetables, fruits, complex carbohydrates, and healthy fats (omega-3's, monounsaturated fats like olive oil, avocado, etc). Even with this, though, you might miss out on some minerals or others -- so a basic multivitamin is generally a good idea as a supplement, not a substitute.
