How to Eat Healthy…

And Do It Without Willpower

  1. Eat breakfast – make it a habit.  Set up the plates etc. on your kitchen counter before you go to bed (we all know that “morning minutes” fly by!)
  2. Avoid vending machines – take your snacks with you. Carry nuts, carrots and celery in ziplock bags.
  3. Avoid drinking sodas – wastes your calorie allocation. Avoid even zero cal ones, sugar replacements are generally not good for your health.
  4. Drink plenty of water – take a water bottle with you. Thirst is often mistaken for hunger.
  5. Reduce portion sizes. The size of plates has increased over the years, so we are actually eating too much, so use smaller plates.
  6. Increase your consumption of vegetables – make vegetables account for at least 75% of the space on your plate.
