  • Cook at home
  • Swap your starches out for veggies at at least ONE of your meals
  • Volumize your meals (think foods that take up a lot of space but are not calorically dense like zucchini noodles, spaghetti squash, rice cake thins, salad greens, etc. 
  • At restaurants, ask for your meal to be cooked without butter/oil
  • Always carry a protein bar in your purse or car (so you don’t get hangry then over indulge later)
  • Eat at least 20-25g protein at EVERY meal/snack
  • Increase your water intake
  • Eat according to your individual needs (AKA. Macronutrient needs/portions/etc.)
  • Plan ahead when dining out (Look online for the menu & nutritional info)
  • Cut out sugar (We’re talking sodas, cakes, cookies, fruit juices, sugary alcoholic drinks, etc.)
  • Buy a food scale (This will help you learn portion control & you might be surprised how off you were at “measuring” portions)
  • Keep a food diary 
  • Pack a lunch to take to work
  • Quit having cheat meals (Just be strategic during the day and plan for that one meal you want that evening. Say it’s pizza, save yourself a good amount of carbs and fat and fill up on lean protein and veggies earlier that day. Be smart 😉 )
