“Aim for about 2 to 3 liters per day,” notess Lisa Moskovitz, RD, CDN. “Our bodies are roughly 60% fluid so it’s important that we stay hydrated and it also helps with nutrient absorption.
Limit Your Sugar Intake

Add Color to Half of Your Plate
Make sure one half of your plate is colorful produce.
“Get those veggies in,” says Amy Shapiro, MS, RD, CDN. “The easiest way is to fill half your plate full with veggies at every meal. And if you want to meet and exceed that goal, make sure there are a variety of different colors on your plate.”
“I want to challenge you to eat one or two more colors on your plate at each meal,” says Isabel Smith, MS, RD, CDN. “We want 3 to 5 colors from plants at your meal minimum. I’m going to challenge all of you guys watching to increase one to two colors for every meal.”
