Fruits & Veggies More Matters

I Learned a Lot About Portion Sizes

I decided to count and record calories as well as fruit and vegetable servings, and I learned a lot about proper portion sizes. I wanted to lose about a pound a week, and actually lost 10 pounds over the 8 weeks. With the knowledge I gained from tracking all my eating and recording the calorie count, I feel well prepared to continue to eat in a healthy manner and maintain proper weight.
