Sample Day of Eating

Keys to Remember:

Portion is key! Men and women of different sizes may all need different amounts to eat. The following plan is an example . Your body works most efficiently with the right amount of fuel. Balance is the idea- we want to eat a balance of lean protein, fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and low fat dairy.
