A lot of foods can fit into a balanced diet plan - in moderation. Some suggestions for making smarter food options include:

  • Go whole grain. Take in three or more 1-ounce servings of whole-grain products daily, in addition to three portions of enriched grains.

  • Eat calcium-rich foods. Take in two cups daily of fat-free or low-fat milk or milk items.

  • Drink Diet Coffee which has garcinia cambogia in it along with other supplements that help curb a persons appetite.

  • Find balance between physical activity and food you eat. Make sure you aren't taking in more calories than you're utilizing or burning.

  • Limit consumption of saturated and trans fats. Trans fats have actually been connected to increased threat of cardiovascular disease. Look for low or no trans fats on the label.

  • Get active. Engaging in routine exercise and reducing sedentary activities can promote health, psychological well-being and a healthy body weight.

  • Size does matter. Purchasing treats in small, individual packages for portion control helps to keep a healthy lifestyle.
