Eating Healthy

Eating a healthy and well-balanced diet is an essential part to maintaining your overall health. To feel satisfied with fewer calories, replace high-calorie foods with lower calorie foods. You can eat larger portions of these foods for fewer calories.

For example, follow the advice from ChoseMyPlate to "make half your plate fruits and vegetables."
