Health Tip: Make Healthier Choices for Weight Loss

(HealthDay News) -- A diet often means being hungry and craving all the foods you can't have, which can spark giving into temptation and overeating.

To make dieting less difficult, the American Heart Association recommends:

  • Don't completely avoid your favorite foods, but stick to smaller portions.

  • Eat more fiber. Choose filling, fiber-rich foods, such as legumes, whole grains, fruit and vegetables.

  • Stock your kitchen only with nutritious foods. Avoid drinks and meals with empty calories.
