Action Steps

  1. Focus on Portion Sizes: Use visual cues like your palm for protein and a tennis ball for carbs. 
  2. Balance Your Plate: Fill half your plate with non-starchy veggies, a quarter with protein, and keep carbs and fats in moderation. 
  3. Choose Complex Carbs: Opt for whole grains, beans, and lentils instead of simple carbs like white bread and pasta. 
  4. Limit Sugar: Reduce sugary foods and opt for whole fruits. 
  5. Use Smaller Plates: Serve meals on smaller plates to help control portions. 
  6. Daily Balance: Adjust meals throughout the day for overall balance. 
  7. Use the Food Log: Write down what you eat and drink for three days. Try to balance your plate for most meals and snacks AND minimize sugar intake. Mark any 20% cheats, like soda, desserts, or high-fat meals, to build awareness. Please send us a photo of your log so we can review it next week.
