8/25/09 Tuesday


It is definitely not realistic to always “control” the foods you eat.  Whatever the reason maybe you just may not be able to have access to the foods you would prefer for a healthy diet.  This doesn’t mean you just don’t eat.  Jenny Craig always advised me to make sure I had this same “routine” of foods per day.  Don’t let yourself go hungry.  Really.  It just slows down your metabolism and causes your brain, body, and energy level to feel sluggish.  I was told to just take 1 tbsp. of each item so that they fill your plate adequately.  The largest portion of the plate in the morning should be the fruit.  If it is lunch or dinner it should be the veggie.  For example, I filled half my plate yesterday at the staff breakfast with mixed fruit.  I gave myself one dollop of the egg casserole for protein and a ½ of a whole-grain bagel for a starch.  Just try to be smart about how your plate looks even when the “menu” is out of your control.  Fruits and/or veggies should always be the largest part of your plate.  Good luck!  You definitely can do it!  It just may take a little practice! 

 Find out tomorrow.  What does Jenny Craig suggest you should have for breakfast out of these three options:
  1. donut
