What to Eat — and Not Eat — to Stay Healthy

It’s not enough just to avoid things, like sugar, to stay healthy — especially if you’re hoping to give your immune system a boost. You need to make sure you’re eating the right foods, every day.

And while a balanced diet comprised of fat, protein and carbohydrates is a good starting point, it’s important to know which specific foods contain the right fat, the right protein and the right carbs.

For example, contrary to some opinions, you actually want your diet to include a lot of fat. In fact, there’s a diet designed to train your body to run on fat as opposed to carbs. It’s called the keto, or ketogenic, diet. Dr. Dusty explains which foods contain healthy fat vs unhealthy fat in the video.

As for carbs, you should get those from veggies. You specifically want to eat cruciferous vegetables, which include cauliflower, cabbage, kale, garden cress, bok choy, broccoli and Brussels sprouts.
