Eat Smart: Try to incorporate fruits, vegetables, protein, carbohydrates, and healthy fats into your everyday diet. Eat small meals throughout the day so that you won't overeat all at once. If you have cravings allow yourself to have them every once in a while, otherwise you will crave them more. You can eat healthy and still enjoy yourself!
