This visual food diary reveals every bite he ate during a 24-hour period.
A glimpse at Jeff Halevy's 24-hour diet shows how occasional indulgences can easily fit into a healthy lifestyle. In between his three nutrient-rich meals, Halevy snacks on treats like fat-free pudding and good-in-moderation guac. The behavioral health and fitness expert and CEO of Halevy Life in New York also understands the importance of simple, nutritious meals for busy nine-to-fivers; he prepares low-fat dinners like grilled chicken and broccoli to accommodate his own schedule.
"A Mediterranean salad with chickpeas, hummus, tomatoes, cabbage, feta cheese, and tomatoes. For the weight-conscious, feta cheese is one of the lowest in fat, and cabbage is full of vitamins, minerals, and fiber."
"Fat-free chocolate pudding curbs your sweet tooth and holds you over until your next meal, while still remaining low in calories."
"Admit it, everyone cheats a couple times a week! Since you're going to do it, replace those Cheez-Its and Doritos with fiber-heavy chips and fresh guacamole dip. Other substitutions could be fresh salsa, hummus, and low-fat cottage cheese."
"Grilled chicken with a side of roasted broccoli. When you get home from a busy day, the last thing most people want to do is slave over the stove. Pre-made grilled chicken and fresh broccoli can be made in under 20 minutes. With the right seasoning and portions, it will be enough to last you into the next morning."
