Eat at least 30g of fiber a day

The foods highest in fiber are the foods that are best for you - fruits, veggies, lentils, and whole grains. A high fiber diet is important for your body's health and proper digestion. Studies show that a high fiber diet can also lower cholesterol.

Eat your veggies first

By eating your vegetables and salad first, you are able to fill up faster and eat less starches and proteins.

Eat less more often

Rather than eating large meals, chop up your eating into smaller portions throughout the day. By eating three meals and three snacks over the course of the day, you will help speed up your metabolism and shed pounds quicker!


A few years ago we had a revelation: chicken and mushrooms go extremely well together. Since then, we’ve tried many recipes using these two main ingredients, and this one is one of our favorites.

Chicken and Mushrooms recipe - Servings: 4

4 small boneless chicken breasts
2 1/2 cups sliced mushrooms
1 tablespoon minced onion flakes
1/2 cup chopped red or green pepper
1 dash garlic powder
2 teaspoons honey
1/4 cup soy sauce

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Place the chicken breasts in a 9×13 baking dish.
3. Sprinkle the chicken with the onion flakes.
4. In a small bowl, combine the honey, soy sauce, and garlic powder; pour the mixture evenly over the chicken.
5. Cover and bake for about 30 minutes.
6. Spread the mushrooms and red or green peppers evenly over the chicken and continue to bake, covered, for about 20 more minutes (or until the mushrooms are tender).
