Fill your stomach with the healthy items first – white turkey meat and plenty of vegetables. Then simply ‘sample’ the less healthy items in small portions. This is so easy to do, save you lots of extra calories, and you don’t have to feel like you are denying yourself, either.

Let’s not forget the importance of water into your diet as well. Your body needs the water for hydration and it also helps to keep the body satiated. Instead of reaching for the sugar laden drinks, consider adding some fresh fruit to your water for a hint of flavor. Smoothies are a great way to get the added nutrients your body requires as well and a favorite among children.
