Remember this basic concept if you're struggling with your diet.

There are so many fad diets out there, that you may be getting lost, heck even OVERWHELMED by what to pick and how to eat.

Just remember the basics.

  1. It’s all about portioning. (Size always matters.) If you’re finding yourself overeating or snacking on too many occasions, then you’ve identified problem #1. Try to maintain consistent portion sizes of your meals of the day i.e. lunch/dinner. The food you consume should fill the same proportion of plate, even if the plate gets larger.

  2. Pile as much color on your plate as possible. If your plate doesn’t look like a rainbow, then change it up! You brain and body needs superfuel to make it through the day. The more color you add to your plate, the higher the absorption of nutrients that fuel fast thinking and creativity.

  3. Remember to pick something from each category (protein, fats, healthy grains) at each meal- even breakfast! The more you do this, the less likely you are to fill up on empty carbs, sugars and things that make your body and energy levels crash!
