I follow a natural foods/whole foods/nutrient dense/no refined sugar diet for my health.  I avoid refined sugars (use a little honey/maple syrup only), grains (low nutrient density, have anti-nutrients), legumes (anti-nutrients), milk (still use cheese), and processed foods (meals in a box, canned soup, frozen dinners, etc.)

I have all the veggies I want, low glycemic fruits (berries, apples, pears, some citrus, etc.), lean meats (and sometimes even bacon!), healthy fats such as coconut oil, avocado, olive oil, fatty wild-caught fish, butter....nuts and seeds (and their derivatives such as flours/butter.)

I do "cheat" once in a while, but not in a huge amount...usually just a few bites if that.

any granulated sugars such as white sugar, brown sugar, and HFCS or anything that isn't natural/I can't gather it or make it in my kitchen.

I also avoid artificial sweeteners.

I stick mostly to whole grains, fruits and veggies (could do way better on the fruits lately), low-fat dairy, and lean meats. I eat eggs and am planning on visiting a woman I know who gets meat from someone who doesn't use all the hormones and antibiotics on the animals. I'm going to look for a source for milk too because I haven't found organic milk in a carton less than one gallon and I can't use that much milk. It's just too much for me. So I'm in the process of finding better food sources but am doing the best I know how right now. 

I've been checking labels to make sure I buy nothing with high fructose corn syrup or the other sneaky names they hide high fructose corn syrup behind. I believe in eating a variety of good foods and by good I mean not processed into toxicity, not pumped full of hormones, antibiotics, covered in pesticides and herbicides, and you'd think it would be a no-brainer and easy to shop the right way but with our FDA it's easier to poison ourselves. Sad.

Ugh.. we're working on it! It seems like every time we get into a good swing of eating healthier and feeling better some type of holiday occurs and then our house is loaded with junk food! It's ridiculous.. next year I am definitely going to stress no candy to our family members for Easter. I was just going through the cupboard today thinking what I could possible do with all this candy to get it out of the house without throwing it away? I feel so bad just tossing it. They all spent good money on it.. and it was gifted to my son.. but I feel even worse having this much junk in the house! Not to mention it's taking up valuable space that I could be using for much healthier snack options!

I'm not on a diet but try to eat as healthy as I can.  I don't deprive myself either
