Start your morning with a healthy breakfast that includes lean protein, whole grains, fruits and vegetables.
Balance your plate
Make half your plate fruits and vegetables which add color, texture, nutrients and fiber.
Watch portion sizes
A good tip is that one cup of food is the size of your fist and a cooked serving of meat is the size of the palm of your hand.
Pay attention to how many carbohydrates you’re eating and choose foods that are lower in calories and higher in healthy nutrients like fruits and vegetables.
Cook more at home where you can better control your ingredients and can be cost effective too.

Cut back on added sugars

Sugar substitutes to the rescue
To help with your sugar cravings in drinks and sweets, use a sweetener like Equal 0 calorie sweetener.
