In brief: Nutrient dense foods

By focusing on nutrient dense foods, you can get all the "stuff" you need without exceeding your caloric budget.
Nutrient dense foods include fruits & veggies, plus lean protein sources. There are scoring systems that are being developed to help measure the nutritional value in relation to the number of calories (eg andi & erni scores).
