  9. What’s for lunch??? • 10 French Fries and 1 hamburger with 8 oz. of soda • 3 oz. of a specialty salad (such as cob or Caesar) with 2 tsp. of salad dressing • 6 oz. of soup with 8 oz. of pasta with sauce

  10. Dinnertime!!! • ½ cup of rice with 6 oz. of stir-fried vegetables and 3 oz. of meat • 1 medium baked potato with1 tsp butter and ½ cup of beans

  11. Tips: • When eating a meal stop when your satisfied, not when your full. • Eat only when your hungry. • If you feel hungry between meals, eat a healthy snack, like a piece of fruit or a small salad, to avoid over eating during your next meal • When snacking in front of the TV, put the amount that you plan to eat into a bowl or container instead of eating straight from the package. It's easy to overeat when your attention is focused on something else.
