Summer was filled with barbecues, desserts, fruity drinks, and wine. Now it’s time to limit some of these sugary and high fatty foods.

Note: You need at least 5 servings of fruits and veggies daily for a healthy diet. The darker the fruit or vegetable, typically the more nutrient dense it is.
Eating from a salad plate instead of a dinner plate will also keep your portions in control. It helps to trick your brain into thinking you are eating more than you actually are.
