What do you consider a healthy diet?

I consider a healthy diet simply eating healthy food. Include some carbs, all the food groups, limited sugar and processed food. It's pretty basic, but everyone seems to have a different definition. So, I'm a little curious as to what YOU consider a healthy diet.

My philosophy is pretty

My philosophy is pretty simple....

Anything I can shoot, catch or grow. If it was food 100 years ago then it can be part of my diet. 

I am a human being so of course there are exceptions and I do take a side road on occasion.... I may be intense but I am not a social freak. ;)))

I consider all whole foods

I consider all whole foods healthy. We need to make a daily diet out of whole foods depending on our  goals.  For me, carbs can not be eaten after 2:00. I am playing with that now. I like to have my carbs in the morning. I will eat oatmeal on most breakfasts. I eat a 1/4 cup, Then maybe a lunch with white rice or yam but my carbs and fats are totally limited after all my daily activities are done. I just realized I cant eat any cheese again. I love cheese but I cant have it.. That simple...

JK, You can eat cheese. Shit,

JK, You can eat cheese. Shit, a 1" cube is 7 to 9 grams of protein. I have always had bad digestion and cheese screwed up my bowels. I switched my night time snack to Cottage cheese and never have the constipation I had with cheese.

I'll skip the cottage cheese

I have never had cottage cheese just because it reminds me of spoiled milk. I can't stand the thought of it. My boyfriend eats it on crackers with pineapple though, and he swears it's the best thing

Of course,it depens on goal

Of course,it depens on goal(bulking or cutin'),but usually I cut my day into 5 meals.Carbs I eat on breakfast of before 2-3 p.m. the same as fruits and nuts. I eat 10 eggs per day,3-4 salads and meat(fish,chicken,beef). I don't add sugar anywhere coz I got enought from fruits,Don't eat fast carbs like cakes or chocolate,but one time pere 1-2 weeks I do a cheating day when I eat almost everything. I have good methabolism so I can eat pizza every day, but prefer not to do that..if I want to see abs oneday :))
