Make Healthy Food Choices

  • Eat three main meals every day.
  • Don't skip breakfast or other meals to try and lose weight; this can lead to over eating at the next meal or snack.
  • Choose a wide variety of foods from each food group. Learn more from ChooseMyPlate.gov.
  • Decrease your portion size – eat less at meals.
  • Wait 20 minutes after you have finished eating to decide if you need a second serving.
  • Enjoy meals with your family at the table with the TV switched off. Distractions such as TV can cause you to overeat.
