What’s on the Plate?

Taking control of your eating by identifying its food group can be a great way to know what to leave on your plate. Each main meal should contain a lean protein as the base (e.g. chicken or fish), a simple carbohydrate (the simple sugars, fiber and nutrients in vegetables and fruit), and a small amount of good fat as found in avocados, olive oil, and almonds. Recognizing that rice, beans, pasta, potatoes and bread are all complex carbohydrates, the slow-burning fuels that the body is designed to store and use last as its fuel, is key to weight loss. Choose only one complex carb if served a combination, preferably brown or wholegrain, or skip this group altogether for maximum results.
