EatingWell's Healthy Aging Meal Plan is designed to provide an overall healthy-eating program that meets the U.S. Dietary Guidelines for Americans at three different daily caloric levels: 1,200, 1,500 and 1,800.

The kitchen is usually the last place that people think needs a makeover. Most women are more concerned about their closet than their kitchens. Many people also just don't know where to start.

My proposal is to look at your fridge, your pantry, and any other kitchen crevices where you like to pack unhealthy, packaged, and processed foods. Just follow the easy steps below.
There are no two ways about it: The contestants on "The Biggest Loser" know -- or rather, come to find out -- that their weight-loss journey and the path to health is not a result of a "diet" or fad, but a medically sound lifestyle modification program that includes exercise and a sensible, healthy eating plan.
