Eat a snack before bed.It's a myth that eating late causes weight gain. As long as you don't overeat, you can enjoy a snack close to bedtime without worry.

Chew on schedule. Too much time between meals can drop your energy levels, decrease your metabolism and result in overeating. Space your meals evenly throughout the day and eat a healthy snack between each meal.

Start at the perimeter of the grocery store. Fruits,veggies,dairy and grains,which should make up the bulk of your diet,are located here. Eating these unprocessed foods boosts your nutritional intake and promotes health.

Avoid trans fats. They increase your risk of heart disease. Foods with "partially hydrogenated oil" as an ingredient contain trans fat(even if the label says 0 grams) and should be left on the grocery shelf.

Eat breakfast. It boosts your energy, metabolism and mentalfocus. Plus, breakfast eaters
consume fewer calories throughout the day than people who skip this meal.

This month I will post a daily tip on how to work towards a Healthier Diet.


You've probably heard the phrase "you are what you eat."While it's true that food is fuel, it's also true that food is broken down and transformed into cells, hormones, muscles and YOU! When you think of food in this light, it can make it easier to make healthy and nutritious choices for your body. March is National Nutrition Month--a time to focus on making informed food choices for a balanced and healthy diet.



emoticon ........DAY 1


Keep a food diary. Before you can improve your diet, you have to know where you stand.
Record everything you eat and drink for five days and use these tips to improve your diet a little bit each day.
