How about a game of “MORE or LESS” to get you started?
Try to eat:
- MORE fruits and vegetables (aim for at least five servings a day).
- LESS solid fat (like butter and cream).
- MORE whole grains, wheat bread, and brown rice.
- LESS food high in saturated fat (like pizza).
- MORE fish.
- LESS alcohol.
- MORE water (instead of sugary drinks).
- LESS food overall.
ChooseMyPlate.gov is a great online resource to start you on your way to a healthier diet.
If you make eating healthier a daily habit, you’ll have a better chance of reaching and maintaining a healthy weight and avoiding cancer.
