Rethinking Portions

Rethink your dinner plate to whittle down your waist size. Aim for half a plate of veggies and fruits.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Department for Health and Human Services released their 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans this week. Topping the list of tools to help people stay healthy, combat disease and obesity is adjusting portion size in order to eat less. While this is easier said than done, the trick is to eat more fiber, which comes from whole foods and fills you up faster. Build your meal with 100% whole grains and half a plate of colorful fruits and vegetables.
