"Incorporate good nutrition habits - eating fruits and vegetables, low-fat dairy products, whole grains and lean protein sources - to get the calories you need to maintain an exercise program," Lee said.
"If you restrict calories too much, you could start to feel burn out," Lee stated.
To bolster the burn, Lee suggested: Fill up on lower calorie fruits and vegetables, choose water over high calorie sodas and decrease high calorie, high fat options.
The expert suggests switching up food preparation: Instead of steaming vegetables, grill them or toss unique vegetables like skewered okra or fresh asparagus on the grill.
"The one important thing to remember is to limit the fat source you use. Try different herbs and spices to season your veggies instead of heavy amounts of olive oil, canola oil, or butter," Lee said.
Restaurant meals can be deceptive and pose a special challenge to healthy eating.
"Even meals you think are healthy in restaurants are loaded with calories because of cooking methods that add a lot of fat and sodium, so ask to have foods prepared as light as possible to avoid extra calories," Lee suggested. ...
