1. Double your veggies.

Make the vegetable portions on your dinner plate twice the size of your meat portion. Mother Nature's gems, vegetables, are chock full of vitamins, minerals, and fiber, and typically, low in fat and heart-unhealthy, saturated fat. More importantly, high bulk, low calorie veggies fill you up before they fill you out, crowding out the opportunity to overeat the higher fat meats at dinner. Eating 3 to 5 servings of veggies daily can help appease your hunger, yet please your waist. Keep your meat to no more than 3 ounces (about the size of a woman's palm) at dinner and double up on the veggies on your plate.
