    Managing meals

  • COLUMN: Weight control issues? Enjoy your food but eat less

    You can enjoy your meals while making small adjustments to the amounts of food on your plate. Healthy meals start with more vegetables and fruits and smaller portions of protein and grains. And don’t forget dairy — include fat-free or low-fat dairy products on your plate, or drink milk with your meal.

    Use a smaller plate at meals to help with portion control. That way you can finish your entire plate and feel satisfied without overeating.
