(HealthDay News) -- With so many diets and eating plans to choose from, deciding which plan is best for you can be challenging.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics offers these suggestions:

  • Follow a diet that's rich in fruits, vegetables and whole grains, and also incorporates low-fat dairy and lean meats, fish, poultry, nuts, beans and eggs.
  • Limit saturated fats, salt, trans fats, cholesterol and added sugars.
  • Look for nutrient-rich foods.
  • Choose a variety of healthy foods for better nutrition and to prevent dietary boredom.
