Plate Method- a nutrient dense and calorie controlling eating habit
Anytime you have a meal in the next 15 weeks I want you to ask yourself "Do I have non-starchy veggies as the largest portion of my plate or bowl?"
Making sure you can say yes to that question will be HUGE in helping you to have portion and calorie control without the hunger pains!
Making sure to have a PROTEIN source every time you eat along with the veggies will make those meals DIABETIC friendly as well as weight control friendly
EASY "no recipe" meal ideas!
Try other easy meals from this list. Remember to follow the Plate Method where you aim for the largest portion on your plate to be low calorie, non-starchy veggies! No portioning or measuring required because making those veggies the largest portion will naturally reduce the portions you eat of calorie containing foods!

Balanced Snack Ideas
Most of these will require grocery shopping.
Remember to pair a snack from the CARB side with a snack from the PROTEIN side! If you have a snack from the CARB side by itself you will have an energy CRASH
