Why I want to be mentor: As a person who has struggled with being overweight my whole life, I feel like the success I've had with weight loss and a healthy lifestyle over the last few years can help others.
Lesson Learned: Healthy food can be extremely tasty, filling, and make you feel great. A lot of people don't eat poorly so much as they eat too much in general. Portion control is a huge factor in nutrition. Everything in moderation.
Tip: Eat the right portion. Yes, the first time you eat 2 or 3 oz. of pasta, you may feel like it's a kiddie portion. But bulk it up with a lean protein like chicken or shrimp, veggies and a light sauce and you'll be surprised at how much it fills you up.
