Mamita,

There are some simple things you can do to eat more healthfully if you don't understand the percentages. Do you eat 6-9 servings of fresh fruit and vegetables ? If not, one healthy thing you can do for yourself is to eat more veggies.

If people should be overeating anything, they should be overeating their spinach. Do you like spinach ? or peppers ? onions ? if you enjoy veggies, try eating more veggies. that will help you become a healthier person.

Do you drink soda ? If so, one way to decrease the amount of calories you take in would be to switch regular soda for diet soda. Ideally, you should be drinking more water. Drinking more water can also help you be a healthier person.

Why don't you tell some things you eat and we can help with suggestions. Right now, we don't know anything about you. So, why don't you tell us about the foods you are eating.

Are you saying it's hard to find low cal foods? Are you asking for food recommendations? I'm unclear. Eat fruits and veggies and lean meats for a start. Eggs and egg whites are good sources of protein as well, with the whoel eggs having a bit more fat and calories than the whites. There are tons of low cal foods out there. Try to avoid the processed stuff, but read labels. It's not as hard as you might think to find healthy food.
