(HealthDay News) -- Following a healthy eating plan may feel overwhelming, but starting with small changes can make it a more realistic goal.
The Weight-Loss Information Network offers this advice:
Eat breakfast each day.
Each time you fill your plate, make sure half contains vegetables and fruit.
Opt for fat-free or low-fat dairy products.
Choose whole grains more often than refined grains. Examples of whole grains include oatmeal, whole-wheat pasta and brown rice.
Limit consumption of candy, cookies and drinks high in sugar.
