Dieting? Veggies Should Make Up Most Of Plate

Are you dieting and trying to lose weight?

The traditional American plate, which contains a large piece of meat, a large helping of mashed potatoes and a small serving of peas, won’t give you any weight loss benefit.

To lose weight slowly but surely, simply fill at least two-thirds of the plate with a variety of plant foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grains and beans, and leave only the remaining room -- one-third of the plate or less -- for animal protein.

Adopting the two-thirds to one-third proportions effectively reshapes meals so they are higher in fiber and lower in fat and calories than the traditional American meal. As a result, they can help people maintain a healthy weight, and offer a healthy strategy for those trying to lose weight safely, gradually and effectively.
