1. Eat foods from each of the basic food groups: fruits and vegetables, dairy products, cereal and grains, proteins.
  2. Limit your salt intake. An adult should only consume 250 – 500 mg a day
  3. Try to eat your main meal early. Breakfast IS the most important meal of the day. Not only do you need brain food for the rest of the day, eating earlier will provide you with lots of energy to carry you throughout the day.
  4. Avoid foods that supply little or no nutritional value. This means, eat less processed foods.
  5. Try eating six small meals a day instead of three large ones. This will keep your stomach filled and you will less likely to “binge” during your next meal.
  6. Try to eat in a relaxed atmosphere, and make your meals attractive and enjoyable. Eating is fun!
