What healthy food choices should I make?

Eat Less Saturated Fat

  • Eat baked, broiled, or stewed fish and meats instead of fried.
  • Use nonfat or low-fat salad dressing, mayo, and margarine.
  • Try a food lower in fat in a favorite dish—for example, make mac and cheese with fat-free or low-fat cheese and milk.

Eat Less Sugar

  • Drink water, sugar-free soda, or unsweetened iced tea instead of fruit drinks, regular soda, or sweet tea.
  • Keep cold water in the fridge.
  • Share dessert with someone else when you’re eating out, instead of having a whole dessert.

Eat Healthy Portions

  • When eating out, share a meal with someone else or put half in a box to take home.
  • Eat slowly and take a break between bites.
  • Do not skip meals—when you skip a meal, it’s easy to overeat at the next meal
