 Ditch “Diet.” Instead, “Edit”

Yes! Eat healthy without sacrificing pleasure. Yes, you can!  Instead of focusing on “dieting” and taking away foods, try “editing” and adjusting how you eat and not just what you eat. I believe you can eat, drink and stay healthy. Here are five tips. I call it simple M.A.T.H. Here you go:

Moderate your portions. Try eating off smaller plates and bowls and stick to one serving versus second helpings.

Add in more healthy foods like fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, healthy fats and lean protein.

Take away or trim unhealthy foods from your diet such as processed food, added sugars and salt.

Hydrate: Drink plenty of water, herbal teas and unsalted broths throughout the day. For every glass of wine you consume, drink one glass of water.
