  5. 5. Following the Dietary Guidelines <ul><li>Increase nutrient density </li></ul><ul><li>Add more vegetables and less mayo to your turkey sandwich. </li></ul><ul><li>Snack on fruit and nuts rather than on chips and cookies. </li></ul><ul><li>Have a whole grain such as bulgur, quinoa, or brown rice rather than packaged, flavored white rice with dinner. </li></ul><ul><li>Stir-fry a variety of vegetables. </li></ul><ul><li>Have strawberries rather than strawberry shortcake for dessert. </li></ul><ul><li>Balance intake with activity </li></ul><ul><li>Don’t skip breakfast; if you do, you’re more likely to overeat later in the day. </li></ul><ul><li>Pass on that second helping. When you eat out, split an entrée with a friend. </li></ul><ul><li>Walk an extra 1000 steps; the more you exercise, the easier it is to keep your weight at a healthy level. </li></ul><ul><li>Ride your bike to work or when running errands. </li></ul><ul><li>Lift some weights or walk on a treadmill while watching the news. </li></ul><ul><li>Limit nutrients that increase health risks </li></ul><ul><li>Look at product labels for sodium and saturated and trans fat content before making a choice. </li></ul><ul><li>Choose lean meat, fish, and low-fat dairy products in order to limit saturated fat. </li></ul><ul><li>Have water and skip the soft drink—it adds nothing but sugar to your diet. </li></ul><ul><li>Pass on the salt; instead, try lemon juice or some basil and oregano. </li></ul><ul><li>If you drink alcohol, stop after one drink. </li></ul>
