Week 4


GOAL | Nine daily servings of fruits and vegetables

  1. Add fruit to your morning cereal. 
  2. Fix salads for lunch three times this week and pile them high with at least three kinds of vegetables or fruit. 
  3. On days when you don’t have a salad, have a piece of fruit with your lunch. 
  4. At dinnertime, before you put anything else on your plate, start with a salad or a heap of green beans or other vegetables. After you’ve eaten your vegetables, start on the rest of the meal. 
  5. Keep sliced vegetables in the fridge in ice water for convenient snacks.
  6. Throw frozen vegetables (no need to defrost) into soups or stews.
  7. Make a stir-fry and use twice the vegetables and half the meat.
  8. Have a fruit-based dessert.

Tip | A serving is a piece of fruit; 1/2 cup cut-up fruit; 1/2 cup cooked, raw, or frozen fruit or vegetable; 1 cup raw greens; 3/4 cup 100 percent fruit juice; 1/4 cup dried fruit.

GOAL | Practice the art of spinning

  1. View a challenge or setback in a more positive light this week—as a cue to change your approach, an opportunity to learn, or a bit of lousy luck that just may have an upside to it.

Tip | Remember, it’s not a stressful event that raises your blood pressure and heart disease risk, it’s your reaction to that event.
