  2. In your mind, divide the plate in half (like shown at right.  Fill one half with vegetables like beans, salad, broccoli and cauliflower.

  3. Take the other half and divide it in half.

  4. Fill one quarter with lean protein like turkey or ham.

  5. Fill that last section with starchy foods like sweet potatoes, stuffing and mashed potatoes. Limiting your carbs to this part of the plate will help keep them in check.
