This information provides a general overview on this topic and may not apply to everyone. The information is NOT a substitute for you visiting your doctor.

Food & Nutrition
Good nutrition is one of the keys to good health. This means making sure you regularly eat foods that have a lot of vitamins and minerals in them, as well as foods that are not high in fat. You should drink milk every day to give your bones the calcium that makes them strong. For most people, foods that are high in fiber are a good choice, and almost everyone should eat several fruits and vegetables every day.

Foods that are high in fat and added sugar have lots of calories. Fat has almost twice the calories of carbohydrates and protein. Also, compared with calories that come from carbohydrates or proteins, calories that come from fat are more easily used by your body to make body fat.

High Calorie Foods
Foods high in calories from fat and/or added sugar Pastries, doughnuts, cakes, cookies, sweet rolls, pies Most crackers and chips Cheeses Cooking oils, margarine, butter, lard, shortening Cream, ice cream Fried foods, hot dogs and luncheon meats Regular soda and fruit-flavored juices.
