  • Whole foods. Fresh fruits, steamed veggies or raw. Simple carbs (whole wheat pasta and breads). STAY AWAY FROM DAIRY. If you can altogether, that;'ll be great. Cow milk is not necessary. In fact, there are alot of health risks assoc. with it. If you have to have dairy, do low fat.

  • Make sure that you are drinking enough water, at least 8 8oz glasses a day.
    Eat an apple or big pile of veggies before meals.
    Eat 7-8 servings of fruits and vegetables a day, in at least 3 different colors
    Eat 6-7 servings of whole grains a day
    Replace meat and dairy with bean, lentils and tofu (all loaded with calcium and iron). Be sure to eat a vitamin C source with an iron source (like kale or beans) to increase the absorption of the iron.
