“Eat mostly whole foods with the balance of carbohydrate, protein and fat that works for you,” says Bonnie Modugno, M.S., R.D., creator of Much More Than Food. “Include enough protein and adequate fat with the plant foods to provide a stable source of energy to fuel your day and minimize energy dips. Better energy and stamina leads to fewer temptations to tap into sugar, caffeine and other quick fixes that end up sabotaging the best of intentions.”
