“You have to feed your body good nutrition for it to run like it’s supposed to run. You have to have good maintenance,” says Joan Salge Blake, EdD, a nutritionist and professor at Boston University. “You have to start treating your body like you do your cars and your home.

“Sometimes, you forget that your body is a well-oiled machine.”

When these things keep you from eating well, your once well-oiled machine starts to sputter.

Talk with your doctor about any trouble you have as you try to eat a healthy diet. You may want to meet with a nutritionist, too. With a good health team, you can come up with a plan that helps get you back into eating well.
