Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. This is adequate to the task of preventing the scourges of diet-induced disease, but more accurate and precise prescription is necessary to optimise physical performance. Finely tuned, a good diet will increase energy, sense of well being and acumen, while simultaneously flensing fat and packing on muscle. When properly composed the right diet can nudge every important quantifiable marker for health in the right direction.
Keep ingredients from a "whole" foods source. Natural, non-processed, non-frozen, stick to the perimeter of the supermarket. Ingredients that do not perish are not food. You don't see used by dates stamped onto the sides of apples.
Stick to a 80/20 rule! When the weekend comes eat what you want, you are just one meal away from goodness again. These "cheat" or "treat" meals are known as informed decisions and are not bad, they just allow you to ensure that your journey of good nutrition is one of longevity and not a crazed 30 day challenge where you have to perform burpees if you so much as sniff a chocolate digestive.
DO NOT be that guy at your sisters wedding sniffing macadamia nuts in the corner! Nor the one who when their 5 year old nephew approaches them with a slice of delicious three tier chocolate cake, slaps it out of little Jonny's hand whilst shouting "SCREW YOU JONNY...I eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar!!"
