– Every meal and snack should contain some protein and fiber to help fill you up & keep you full.

– Your protein sources should be lean (e.g. fish, chicken, beans & legumes (also a source of fiber), tofu, nuts & seeds…)

– You should eat a wide variety of fruits and vegetables… in their whole form is best. Also, keep in mind that they lose nutrients the longer they sit after being picked, so sometimes frozen is a better option. and be careful for pesticides… always wash your fruits & veggies before eating them!

– If you consume dairy products, make sure to keep them low fat or fat-free. You could also substitute milk alternatives such as soy, almond, or rice milk (and cheese, yogurt, etc…)

– The majority, if not all, of your grain products should be whole-grain. This can be whole wheat, oatmeal, quinoa, bulgur, amaranth, barley, brown rice, etc… the possibilities are virtually endless! Don’t eat refined grains! This is one of the biggest downfalls for people trying to lose weight. They spike your blood sugar and make you hungry again in an hour. Not to mention they have much fewer nutrients than whole grains, and the ones that are there are added in artificially… yuck!

Hope I helped & good luck!

Question by Sunshine: How do I lose belly fat from my pregnancy?
My pre pregnancy weight was 106 and I gained about 30 lbs during the entire pregnancy. I lost all the weight but still have some belly fat that I really want to tone and flatten:) I can’t get to the gym so I need exercises that I can do around the house. I also need ideas for a healthy eating habit while exercising. The more answers the better:D Thanks a bunch.
