Tip
Healthy, low-fat recipes and guidance are available in bookstores and on the internet.

Read nutrition labels. Pay attention to saturated fat, sodium, and sugar. The higher their numbers, the unhealthier they are.

Step 4: Eat breakfast
Eat breakfast every day. Breakfast helps to rev up your metabolism. Make it a habit to eat something within the first hour after you wake up.

Step 5: Eat every three to four hours
Try to eat small meals every three to four hours. Aim for three small, balanced meals and two snacks.
