keep in mind when you're planning healthy meal
The word diet often means
a temporary and restrictive eating plan
that helps you to lose weight,
but when you stop the diet,
you often gain the weight right back,
so I set out to make changes
that would stick.
In the past, I threw together
whatever convenient and low-calorie meal
I could get my hands on, but I quickly learned
that I needed to plan well-rounded meals
with a good amount of protein, fiber, and healthy fats
to satisfy my hunger and keep me full for hours.
Here are a few things
to keep in mind when you're
planning healthy meals.
