Frankly speaking, I didn’t use to be a healthy eater.I used to have a lot of junk food, fizzy drinks and precooked and canned food which were really fattening. However,
I radicallychanged my eating habits. Now I try to make more
healthy choices.I have more veggies and fruits, and lessred meat. I try to eat in moderationand watch my portion sizes.Actually, I try to eat a balanceddiet including nourishing meals. I’ve also cut
down on dinner. If I feel hungry, Ihave a light meal earlyinthe evening.
