Guide to healthy eating

Don’t skip meals—plan for meals and snacks.

Avoid sugary foods and drinks.

Trim the skin and fat off your meat. It’s more nutritious and heart-healthy.

Try dried herbs to spice up your food, instead of using butter, margarine or gravy.

Make meals last at least 20 minutes, since it takes that long for you to feel full.

Fat-free and other dietetic foods aren’t necessarily lower in calories. Many have more sugar added to replace the fat.

If you feel you are overweight and want to make changes to your diet, consult your health care provider for further information.
