6. Serve healthy foods first

At meals, begin your dishing-up process with the healthiest food FIRST, that is the salad and veggies.

Cover at least 75% of the plate with veg and you’re already on track to a lower calorie meal. This is also just the best ratio to eat for general health. Just be sure not to cover the veg in cheese sauce or mayonnaise!

… and don’t pile up your plate with only potatoes. A VARIETY of vegetables is important for a healthy, balanced diet.
