Proven Tips for all diets

Plan your meals. Plan a weekly schedule and make your grocery list from this plan.

Eat before you go to the grocery store. This makes you less vulnerable to unhealthy impulse buys.

Take your lunch to work. Reduce the need for fast food.

Carry healthy snacks. Eliminate the need for vending machines and convenience store trips.

Choose restaurants wisely. Pick ones that have healthy options.

Watch restaurant portions. If the meal is large, consider splitting meals or saving extra for later.

Do not rush. Studies show eating mindfully aids satisfaction and lessens the desire to overeat.


Nutritional needs vary greatly. Consult with your Primary Care Physician before beginning any diet.
