What is a regular diet?

Heather R. Mangieri
Nutrition & Dietetics
A regular diet is one that does not include any dietary restrictions. It should include all of the characteristics of a healthy diet, which means it should be balanced, adequate in nutrients, moderate in all foods, include a variety of foods and be calorie controlled.

The diet should include a healthy foundation of whole grains, fruits and vegetables, lean proteins (including beans and legumes), low-fat daily and sources of healthy fats, but it still allows for the occasional favorite treat.
