Calories Under Control

  • Reducing serving sizes. Stick to moderate portions of food. Savor each bite. Eating slowly lets your brain get the message that your stomach is full, before you over eat. You'll find it also allows you to appreciate the flavor of the food.
  • Cut dietary fat and cholesterol by selecting low-fat foods; switching to low-fat dairy products; and limiting use of eggs and cheeses.
  • Increase fiber by eating whole-grain products; dry beans; peas; fruits and vegetab;es.
  • Minimize sodium by cutting back on salt in food preparation and at the table; and processed foods high in salt.
