Good Nutrition

Jane wants to lose weight. She asks her doctor for help. He tells Jane about good nutrition. He says, “Good nutrition is the best way to be healthy. Avoiding junk food will help you lose weight and feel good.”

Jane asks, “What foods should I eat?”

“Fruits, vegetables, whole grains, chicken, and fish,” the doctor replies. “These are all good foods. Eat them every day. Plus water: drink lots of water.”

“What is junk food?” asks Jane.

“It is food with a lot of sugar, salt, oil, fat, or caffeine,” says the doctor. “Candy and soda have a lot of sugar. Chips and ice cream have a lot of fat. These are types of junk food. You should eat very little of it. Junk food is not good for you.”

“Ok. Thanks, doctor,” says Jane. “I’m going to practice good nutrition. I’m going to eat less junk food and more good food.”
