Eating Healthy

    • A variety of nutrients/foods
    • Increased fruits and vegetables
    • Non-processed, fresh foods as much as possible
    • A balance of lean protein, heart healthy fat and carb (from fruits/veggies and whole grains)
    • Enjoy all foods in moderation
    • Prevent cancer, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, etc.

Eating for a healthy weight is all of the above plus:

  • Balance of protein, fat, carb for stable blood sugar to prevent over eating
  • PORTION size (fist approximately 1 cup, palm approximately 3-6oz, and tip of thumb approximately 1 tsp)
  • Hunger and satiety NOT starving and stuffed.
