# 1 – Suggestions to help with weight control:
- 3 meals per day
Eat 3 meals a day, even if small.
[Food is fuel for the body and in burning will burn calories. Therefore, eating three times is recommended.]
- Fall favourite, corn
Corn, a favourite fall food, should be limited in consumption as a starch that is very high in sugar content. [one or two cobs a week is a good limit.]
Fruit should be consumed prior to one’s meal or a 1/2 hour after a meal. Fruit’s high sugar content is a problem that needs control.
Carbs consumption should be reduced to a bare minimum and preferably eaten in the early half of the day.
One needs protein every day but again moderate the amount.
Water, ideally 6-9 glasses each day, should be consumed throughout the day. Sip it instead of trying to drink your daily quota all at once at the end of the day.
