ID#:15032
Description:This white ceramic plate had been topped with some rather high caloric foods including a fried chicken breast, a serving of macaroni and cheese, and a serving of baked beans. This meal measured 607 calories in its entirety. Compare this to a lower calorie, healthier meal choice in PHIL 15030.
Research shows that people get full by the amount of food they eat, not the number of calories they take in. You can cut calories in your favorite foods by lowering the amount of fat and or increasing the amount of fiber-rich ingredients, such as vegetables or fruit.

Aim for a slow, steady weight loss by decreasing calorie intake while maintaining an adequate nutrient intake and increasing physical activity. You can cut calories without eating less nutritious food. The key is to eat foods that will fill you up without eating a large amount of calories.
