Healthy to me consists of "better bad choices". Minimal commercially processed foods, but not eliminated. Minimize fast / restaurant foods that are pretty much sky high in salt, sugar, fats and more or less everything bad for you. (There are good fats, and bad fats, not all fats are bad, minimize the bad ones, enjoy the good ones in proper portions). Artificial sweeteners are bad, but not as bad as high fructose corn syrup. Both are a lose lose situation... How fast do you want to lose? Simple carbohydrates? I'd rather not, but I will work with it as best I can.
