10 Tips for Your Health and Your Waistline:

  • Trade in your sugary beverages and drink water (8 glasses a day) instead. One can of soda per day = 10 extra pounds per year!
  • Stop snacking during TV time. Mindless eating while watching TV is a recipe for weight gain.
  • Do away with larger-than-life portions by asking your waiter to wrap up half your meal before he serves your food. This way you’ll cut out half the calories!
  • Say bye-bye to white bread and look for labels that say “whole grain” instead. Eat brown rice instead of white rice, and oatmeal instead of sugary cereals.
  • Go for skim milk over whole milk—you get the same amount of calcium but way less fat.
  • IF you choose to eat fast food, be smart! Super-sizing may be better for your wallet, but it’s definitely bad for your body.
  • You can get plenty of protein from low-fat dairy, beans, eggs, nuts, and fish, so make red meat a treat.
  • Fresh is best—pick fruit instead of ice cream. Your body will thank you.
  • GREEN is a beautiful thing! Make green the color of choice on your plate for nutritional value and lighter meals.
  • Slow down! It takes about 20 minutes for you to feel full after eating. Listen to your body so you won’t overeat.
