Here are some food strategies that work:
- Learn the basics of nutrition. Even if you think you know them, go over them again, ensuring that you know how to put them into practice.
- Understand portion control. You don't have to be manic and weigh and measure everything you eat, but get comfortable with what amounts -- like a handful or spoonful -- look like.
- Try making a large batch of your favorite healthier meals to freeze for later use.
- Take advantage of the newest convenience foods, such as pre-cut veggies for stir-fries or salads.
- When you're eating packaged food, learn to decipher its nutritional information and beware of serving sizes, which are usually much smaller than you think.
