I try to have something to eat every 2 to 3 hours during the day. You want to keep them healthy for the most part and try to get all the different varieties of food into your diet. Eating your main meals then a snack in between.
This will help to keep portion sizes smaller because you will not get that real deep hunger feeling that pushes you to over eat. This also boosts the metabolism and is great for getting strong, lean muscle when adding in a good workout program.

When it comes to starting a new lifestyle of exercising, start small but be consistant. When I used to try to be a body builder on my first day back to the gym and run a marathon on the tredmill, I was way too sore the next day to even continue and I soon found myself in the bed rather than in the gym. When you set a goal to be consistant, you will soon make exercise a habit and it will not be so hard to slowly add to your daily routine and before you know it, your life has changed!
Be consistant and don't skip adding your exercise points... they really add up. Also add to the list of favorite foods by entering item you eat that aren't on the regular list. You'll only have to take the time once.
