I’m not sure how much you are eating each day. Click here to see how much of different foods you should be eating each day.  If the amount seems too much, try spreading out over the day in small meals and snacks. For fruits, dried and 100% juice might be less filling. You might find that raw vegetables are more filling than cooked. Lastly, consider what your portions are of other foods and see if they can be decreased slightly without compromising nutrition.
