Ready to start eating healthy and not sure where to start?

The key is to consume the right amount of calories from the right kinds of foods to support your activity level. Activity levels determine how many calories a day you can eat without gaining weight. If you are not moving much or expending much energy, you will want to decrease your calories to prevent those pounds from creeping up.

·       Enjoy indulgences less frequently or in smaller portions.
