Moderation Is Key
A healthy, balanced diet includes a variety of foods…yes, even carbohydrates and fats! Size up your portions and you can indulge in all your favorites. Remember: Half a piece of cake has 50% of the calories of a whole piece, and can still satisfy us.
Drink lots of water! Our body often tricks us into thinking we’re hungry, even though it’s simply thirsty, so have a glass of water prior to eating or start your meal with some light broth-based soup.
Avoid temptation lurking in your pantry by not purchasing irresistible high-fat and high-calorie items or buying individual-sized items rather than family-sized packages.
Having healthier snacks like cut fresh fruit or protein-packed nuts on hand instead of chips and such will satisfy your crunch-cravings, especially if you find yourself eating when you’re bored!
Burn off calories with your favorite outdoor or indoor exercises.
