In brief: Healthy choices

Avoid the center isles of the grocery.
Stay in the perimeter...Fresh vegetables, fruit, dairy and chicken.. 3 small meals and try to be more active. You can do it!

It is best to cook your own meals and to avoid eating out. I know that means a lot more work for you, but it's also the best food!!! Plan your meals out for the week (or at least a few days ahead). Make your lunches out of left overs from dinner. Focus on eating meat and vegetables. My favorite lifestyle / meal plan is Paleo. It will change your life!! You can do this!!!!

In brief: Calories and balance

Here are the basics - women, 1600 cal, men 1800-2000 calories.
You should not get more than 40% of your calories from carbohydrates. Drink your water - we are all chronically, mildly dehydrated. Regular exercise is part of the equation as well, at least 4 times per week, for 20-30 minutes. Lastly, be patient - it takes months to see effect. Good luck!

In brief: PORTION CONTROL

Portion control, moderation, variety and balance.
Portion control is important- especially eating out where portion sizes have grown. Fresh fruits, vegetables, should be half of your plate. Legumes, beans, whole grains, a 1/4 plate and lean cuts of meat, fowl and fish, low fat dairy products 1/4 plate. Processed foods, high in animal saturated fats and processed sugars should be avoided.
