“If a little is good, more is better.” Many people believe this motto, especially when it comes to eating healthy food. Consuming a lot of one particular food or food group can cause two potential problems. One, you may be depriving your body of necessary nutrients; and two, you may end up eating too many or too few calories.
Here are two examples:
1. We can all agree that kale and spinach are good healthy foods. If the majority of your diet was made up of these two greens, you most likely would not be taking in enough calories or nutrients.
2. Eating multiple servings of almonds, walnuts, sunflower seeds, dried fruit, avocado or whole grains will lead to an excess of calories, and may leave you too full for other foods like fruit and vegetables.
Everything in moderation.
Love, Health & Happiness,

Good advice. I’ve experienced the nut thing for myself – easy to overdo it!
