Article excerpt

1. In 2014, embrace all the wonderful, healthy foods you can eat, rather than placing your efforts and attention on the foods you can't.

Holly Smith, APD.

2. Cut your portion sizes, stick to basic foods like vegetables, salad and lean proteins, and build some exercise into your day's routine.

Catherine Saxelby, APD.

3. Eat clean and healthy 90% of the time, but allow yourself a portion controlled "occasional" treat. Avoid feeling deprived and stop the yoyo.

Kate Battocchio, APD.

4. When visiting the supermarket, walk around the outskirts of the store. Here you'll find most of your wholesome foods, including fruit and vegetables.

Dayna Jaeschke, APD.

Alison Baldwin, APD.

Allison Lord, APD.

Simone Van Den Berg, APD.

10. Control portions, choose fresh, listen to your appetite, drink water and avoid fatty takeaway foods.

Karen Beardsmore, APD.

11. Don't go anywhere serving high-kilojoule food when you're hungry - instead, to avoid over-indulging, plan to have a low-kilojoule, filling meal or snack before heading out.

Melissa Berryman, APD.

12. Make sure everything you put on your plate is providing your body with something good.

Kim Parsons, APD. …
