2. Fill Up on Fruits and Veggies
Losing weight—and keeping it off—isn’t just about the number of times you eat during the day: It won’t do you a lick of good to reduce your meals/snacks from six to three if those three meals could feed a suburban neighborhood. First, you need to re-familiarize yourself with a “serving” really looks like. One trick to control your calories is to fill your plate halfway with fruits and veggies. Eating more of these nutrient-packed foods have been shown to be one of the most important predictors of weight loss. Then, fill the other half with healthy proteins and carbs, which we’ll cover in the next slide. Vegetables are important part of healthy eating and provide a source of many nutrients, including potassium, fiber, folate(folic acid) and vitamins A, E and C. Options like broccoli, spinach, tomatoes and garlic provide additional benefits, making them a superfood!
