Renee’s Rules For Healthy Eating

Renee’s Rules for Healthy Eating Nutrition is just as important as exercise when it comes to being healthy. The idea is getting accustomed to foods that will maximize the results of your physical activity. Proteins and carbohydrates play an important role in healthy eating. You should always include good sources of protein in each meal. Examples include:

  • Chicken Breast
  • Turkey Breast
  • Fish
  • Lean Beef
  • Lean Pork
  • Eggs
  • Yogurt
  • Cottage CIheese
  • Nuts
  • Beans


Carbohydrates play a role in giving your body energy. Try to stick with complex carbohydrates (which are slow burning) which provide fuel for your body for longer periods of time. Examples of slow burning carbohydrates include:

  • Oatmeal
  • Brown Rice
  • Yams
  • Whole Grain Bread
  • Green Leafy Vegetables
    (green beans, broccoli, asparagus, etc.)
  • Fruits
    (apples, grapefruit, berries, etc.)


For maximum benefit, you should have a protein and a carbohydrate for each of your meals and your meals should be at around every 2 – 3 hours (5 – 6 times a day). This is because eating proteins plus complex carbohydrates fuel your body more efficiently because they both require more energy to be digested, thus leaving you satisfied longer. Additionally when you eat them together, they work synergistically to enhance each other.
