  7. 7. Finding a Healthy Balance <br />Get at least 150 of moderate Or 75 minutes of vigorous physical activity each week<br />You may need more activity to lose weight or keep off weight you’ve lost (up to 300 minutes or more of moderate – or 150 minutes<br />Between <br />the <br />Calories <br />you <br />eat<br />And <br />Those<br /> you<br />burn<br />
  8. 8. Set yourself up for success (Lifestyle Changes)<br />Simplify<br />Start slow and make changes to your eating habits over time<br />Every change you make to improve your diet matters<br />
  9. 9. Simplify<br />Instead of being overly concerned with counting calories or measuring portion sizes, think of your diet in terms of color, varitety and freshness – then it should be easier to make healthy choices. Focus on finding food you love and easy recipes that incorporate a few fresh ingredients. Gradually, your diet will become healthier and more delicious.<br />
  10. 10. Start Slow/Make Changes Over Time<br />Trying to make your diet healthy overnight isn’t realistic or smart. Changing everything at once usually leads to cheating or giving up on your new eating plan. <br />As your small changes become habit, you can continue to add more healthy choices to your diet.<br />

  12. 12. People often think of healthy eating as an all or nothing proposition, but a key foundation for any healthy diet is MODERATION.<br />Despite what certain fad diets would have you believe, we all need a balance of carbohydrates, protein, fat, fiber, vitamins, and minerals to sustain a healthy body<br />
  13. 13. MENTAL BLOCK???<br />Trying not to think of certain foods as “off limits.”<br /> When you ban certainfood groups, it is natural to want those foods more, and then feel like a failure if you give in to temptation.<br />
  14. 14. Smaller Portions???<br />When eating out, choose an <br />Appetizer instead of an entrée.<br />Split a dish with a friend OR<br />Order off the kids menu<br />At home, use a smaller plate.<br />A serving of meat, fish or chicken. Should be the size of a deck cards. A teaspoon of oil or salad dressing is about the size of a matchbook.<br />And a slice of bread should be the size of a CD case.<br />
  15. 15. It’s not just what you eat, it’s how you eat:<br />Take time to chew your food and enjoy mealtimes<br />Listen to your body<br />Eat breakfast, and eat smaller meals throughout the day.<br />

Eat healthy Carbs and Whole Grains<br />Make sure you’re really getting whole grains.<br />Be aware that the words stone-ground, multi-grain, 100% wheat, or bran, don’t necessarily mean that a product is whole grain!<br />Look for the new Whole Grain Stamp. (If there is no stamp look for the words “whole grain” or “100% whole wheat” and check the ingredients<br />
