Here are two weeks’ worth of menus that will give you an idea of the many healthful combinations of meals that can be prepared. These menus are not rigid formulas. As long as you eat lots of Super Foods, a wide variety of other healthy foods, and small amounts of low-fat dairy products, fish, poultry, nuts and seeds, you’ll do all right.

I haven’t indicated how large each serving is because this isn’t a weight-loss or weight-gain diet. The serving size depends on your appetite. The menus simply show you some of the different possible combinations of healthy foods. These menus aren’t written in stone; feel free to experiment. Since the point is to eat a variety of foods, a meal composed of several small servings is fine.

I tell my patients to drink 64 ounces of water every day. That comes out to eight, 8-ounce glasses or four, 16-ounce glasses of water a day. Drink water with every meal, as well as at other times during the day.

SNACKS—Snacks are fine as long as they are healthy foods. I suggest a carrot for a snack every afternoon. Carrots taste great, have plenty of beta carotene and other nutrients, but contain no cholesterol and only a little fat. Other raw vegetables are also good.
