  • * It’s important to remember that “orange” doesn’t mean bad and “green” doesn’t mean good. We like to think of our color system as a portion guide. “Orange” foods can raise a “red flag” for foods that contain a lot of calories without filling you up. So while you can eat “green” foods in larger quantities, you need to be more mindful of how much “orange” food you’re eating.
