You can eat your favorite dessert; just make sure you have plenty of fruits and veggies, a serving of protein (the size of a deck of cards), a small amount of fat (the size of a walnut), one-two servings of grains (one half or a full fist) along with it. food portions plate If you end up overindulging, it is important to not beat yourself up over it. Respecting your body and learning from your experiences will help you to make positive changes in nourishing yourself. 2) Stay Active! Getting motivated to exercise when it is freezing outside or on a day off of work can be tough, however, there are many exercises that are easy to accomplish inside. Pushups, sit-ups, jumping jacks, and squats can all be done in your living room.
