Choose your plate

Most of us eat off plates. We often wonder why there are so many people who struggle with portion control and what can be done about it.

Yesterday when I worked in the Pediatric Weight clinic I noticed again how most families appreciate it when I show them my favorite resource on this topic:

www.choosemyplate.gov

It is like one-stop-shopping for nutrition. Click on it and on one page you will get all the information you need on how to fuel your body well.

Remember that pilots check which fuel goes into their planes. They take zero chances. Some planes have been known to crash or stall simply due to human error—wrong fuel.

As Zig Ziglar once said, “ If you have a million dollar race horse will keep him up all night, expose him to smoke and feed him junk food?” The answer is obviously no.

So why will you you do that to your body or allow your kids to do it to their bodies?
