Here is an outline that can give you some ideas on proper food choices:
Always eat Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Make sure your food choices consist of:
Fluids: Choose fluids as close to water as possible. ( 6 - 8 ) 8 oz glasses per day. or 1/2 your body weight in fluid oz. i.e if you weigh 150 lb. / 2 = 75 fl.oz / 16.9 fl oz ( standard serving of water ) = 4. Therefore, consume (4) 16.9 fl oz bottles per day to meet your hydration needs.
Carbohydrates: All complex. Whole-wheat is not Whole grains. Whole foods = full energy.
Protein: land and sea based. Finger tip to Palm size servings
Fats: A serving of oil is 1 tbsp. or a pat of butter. In this order of usage ( Olive, Canola, Butter )
The key to changing your weight is to find foods that you like in the "food choices" and a create a variety of foods per group that can help you make wise decisions.
If you snack between meals: Snack on fruits, dried fruit and nuts, protein bars, No processed snacks in packages!
- 3 - 5 portion controlled meals a day eaten every 2.5 - 3 hours.
First create a chart and find out what foods you like per food choice group. When you have done that ,you can begin to see what types of foods you are eating and then you can make adjustments so that you when it comes time to consume foods you will be more empowered to make wiser food choices.
