Make smart choices
You don’t have to give up all your favorite foods and drinks. Learn to make smart food, drinks choices, and simple substitutions instead. Discover healthy snacks and how vegetables, fruits, and whole grains help keep you fuller longer.
Understand how much and why you eat.
Use a food diary or tracking app to understand what, how much, and when you are eating. Being mindful of your eating habits and aware of your roadblocks and excuses can help you get real about your goals.
Manage portion sizes.
It’s easy to overeat when you’re served too much food. Smaller portions can help prevent eating too much. Learn the difference between a portion and a serving and how to keep portions reasonable.
Set realistic goals
Know where you are today so you know how to get where you want to be. Learn your Body Mass Index (BMI). Set yourself up for success with short-term goals, like “I will make lifestyle changes which will help me lose more kilograms”. Short-term goals can seem more achievable and keep you on track toward your long-term goals.
Be physically active
Physical activity is anything that gets your heart rate up, like walking, dancing, riding a bicycle, running. Aim for at least 150 minutes of moderate activity a week. Move more, with more intensity, and sit less.
