    Well in a brief summary: high protein and vegetables, moderate carbs., healthy fats, natural sugars (e.g. from fruit) and plenty of water

    One which incorporates all the food groups in appropriate amounts, without rigidity, obsession, persistent overindulgence or starvation. The number of people who develop eating disorders in their teenage years is depressing.

    What do you mean? Eat broadly without sticking to a diet, like most normal people do? I considered that, but, I want to take care of my body. I might be missing the point entirely mind.

    My advice if you want to do this: do 2 days of your new 'superhealthy' diet followed by a day where you eat like your friends. Maybe once a week or two have a true cheat day (whatever the hell you like). But if it's not perfect then it doesn't matter. Love your body the way it is, don't try to drastically change it (though if you want to get fit, that's fine, but balance it with everything else like studies, friends, your non-health and fitness related hobbies.) Don't sweat the small stuff, it's not worth it!

    That does sound good, and way to have a 'mixed' diet as they say. Um, the small stuff?

    You should read up on nutrition it is actually very simple. There are 5 food groups, fats, proteins, carbohydrates, fibres and I forgot the last one. All you have to do for a healthy diet is to eat all of them. If you arrange those foods into a pyramid with the fibre and carbs at the bottom and the fats and sugars at the top you end up with a rough guide to the amounts of each that you should eat. I.e less fats and more fibre. Also lots of water. I personally fail at this, i need to try harder.

    Lower you keep the carbs/sugar, the easier you'll loose weight.

    If you don't smoke or do drugs and don't get pissed every week then you're already healthier than most.

    Avoiding processed/hydrogenated fats/highly refined sugar is good though.
