      ================== ARTICLE START ==================
      Ok, you've decided that you are going to eat healthily.

      But with so many "experts" and reports on hand, what really
      counts as healthy food? There's so much conflicting advice,
      it's difficult to know where to start. Use this simple guide to
      set you on the right track.

      1.Fruit and Vegetables.

      The recommendation is at least 5 portions a day. That's a good
      target (but don't beat yourself up if there are occasional days
      when you miss it). An apple, orange or banana counts as one
      portion. Fruit like this is easy to "count". But what about
      vegetables? Don't get too hung up on what counts as a portion.
      If it looks right on the plate, it's probably correct. The
      trick is to eat fruit and vegetables regularly and to ring the
      changes so that you're not just stuck on 3 apples, a portion of
      frozen peas and a tomato each day.

      2.Bread, Cereals and Potatoes

      These are generally considered healthy (although some diets
      that go back to ancient times, as well as low carb diets, would
      argue differently). If your chosen diet includes them, aim for
      whole grain breads and cereals as well as jacket potatoes. The
      best rule here is the lower the amount of processing the food
      has undergone, the better. Brown rice is more natural than
      white, for instance.

      3.Milk and Dairy Products

      Again, go with your chosen diet on these. Most diets will
      include milk and dairy products as they contain essential trace
      nutrients that are difficult for you to get elsewhere. Beware of
      too much fat though. Whole milk obviously has more fat than
      skimmed or semi skimmed. If you're used to whole milk, consider
      making the trade down to skimmed milk gradually, otherwise it
      will just seem watery.

      4.Meat, Fish and Alternatives

      You need to get protein in your diet and these are all good
      sources of it. Of course, if your chosen healthy eating plan is
      low carb then meat and fish will be heavily featured. Check out
      the fat content and if necessary, trim off excess fat or skim
      it off it you are cooking. Broiling rather than frying will
      help to keep the fat levels down as well.

      Keep your sugar intake to a minimum. Learn to read the label,
      especially the umpteen different names that food manufacturers
      use to disguise the high sugar levels in many foods.

      Try to keep your fat intake biased towards the healthier fats
      that are unsaturated, such as olive oil. Avoid hydrogenated
      fats if at all possible. If you're tempted to use margarine,
      read up on how it's produced and then decide. You may well be
      better to use real butter in moderation than a highly processed
      substance like margarine.
