Healthy eating food diary. These are just 9 ideas of meals you can have on a daily basis and still lose weight.

**Disclaimer: I’m not a nutritionist or dietician. Please follow specific dietary guidelines based on your body. These meals represent a low calorie diet with higher than average fat percentages. Since I’m over 30, I feel that fat in the diet is more beneficial to my joints.

I do exercise daily if possible by going to the gym, power walking, jogging, kickboxing or light muscle work, squats, lunges, crunches, etc. If it’s raining outside I go to the gym or do a “Walk Away the Pounds” video with Leslie Sansone. These are super easy and really helped my weight loss.
