Meal Wraps

To honor this festive holiday season I've decide to actually POST on this blog again! Obviously, because there is so much food to sample this time of year we who try to diet and keep in shape generally force ourselves to eat more healthy. We increasingly telling ourselves we've got to stay away from too many calories by eating less or not eating certain foods. The key to successfully stay in shape is actually eating more meals of the right kinds of foods, combined together. However, this does not mean you can not eat certain foods to be victorious with the Small Step Diet.

"Meal Wraps" are a term I created when I was trying to develop meals around the three basic foods of dieting. Protiens, Fiber, and Starch. Eating 5 times a day, every three hours with the right proportions is so important to not only eating healthier, but helps change your lifestyle eating habits for the better.
