What’s the take-home message? To start, make half your plate vegetables! That’s probably a big change for most people and one I think will deliver the most results. I also think in addition to that, if you eat the veg side of your plate first, then you’ll probably have less room to overeat the protein and carb sides of your plate. I also recommend eating your veg/salad first so you’re sure to get your veggies in before you start getting full (or bored).
So…from my plate to yours, happy eating!
