HEALTHY EATING CHOICE: Cutting back on the amount of food that you love is one of the healthiest ways to stay fit. Many people are under the false impression that when you have a lifestyle change, that this indicates you will not be able to eat any of your favorite foods. This is inaccurate. When changing your lifestyle you really can indulge in some of your secret pleasures, the key is to not overdo it. Decrease your portions with a small bowl OR even when you choose to go out to eat at a restaurant, try ordering off of the children's menu. The children's menu generally has great food but significantly less on the plate than you order. Now this trick will only work if you order "one" children's meal for yourself. Ordering multiple dishes could possibly "increase" your caloric intake. And never be embarrassed to order a kid's menu without the kid - many restaurants will allow it (some for a small surcharge). After all, this is about maintaining a healthy lifestyle!
