    A high nutrienal value to calorie ratio. I.e. fruits and vegatables. Lots of vitamins and minerals for the calories. Compared with soda or candy bar which pretty much has no nutritienal value.

    The goal is to get all the nutrients we need in the fewest calories to avoid excess fat. Of course for our mental health, a piece of cheesecake once in a while is worth the calories.

    they will generally be whole foods... non processed, man made, fortified with sugar bleached flower and lard (there was sarcasm there with fortified ) foods.

    like gakusei said fruits and veggies, but not limited to them. nuts, fish, lean meats, and heck even fatty cuts of meat. there are a lot of things in beef you cant get anywhere else except in a bottle at your local supplement store.

    its almost a common sence thing.
    an apple or a snickers bar?
    a tossed salad or a super omega giant biggie sized french fry?
