The pages of every magazine are filled with the latest ways to shape up for summer. With so much information on how to eat healthy, it is difficult to know where to start.
Liz Applegate, PhD, RD from the University of California at Davis, points out one key factor that's often overlooked when it comes to healthy eating. "It is important to recognize that we don't just eat for nourishment. We also eat because food tastes good. To help you stick with any diet program, you need to include foods your body needs for good health that taste good too," she says.
No matter what type of diet plan you choose to follow - low calorie, low fat, low-carb or even vegetarian - it is easy to suffer from "diet boredom": eating the same few things over and over in order to control your food intake.
That's why we've developed a whole new section dedicated to food that is FIT and FLAVORFUL, full of simple ways to help start you on the road to better health.

The key is umami. Sometimes referred to as "the fifth taste," umami is a savory, delicious taste. The umami of soy sauce enhances foods' natural flavors, without adding unwanted fat, calories or carbohydrates.
We invite you to visit our new Healthy Eating section. You'll find recipes and more advice from Dr. Applegate that will help you discover just how pleasing eating well can be!
