Nutrients are responsible for our health--not calories, and certainly not the latest dietary trend. It's not about calories, grams, total fat, or daily percentages; and it's not about alkaline, paleo, vegan, sugar-free, gluten-free--you name it.
When eating right, you can put the amount out of focus. It's difficult to overeat when consuming nutrient-dense foods because your body is able to reach its nutrient quota that it requires to survive and function. No one is going to have to pull you away from eating an entire bag of carrots.
So, go for it. Eat as many nutrient-dense foods as you want. Just eat anything REAL. That's what it's all about.
