Make at least half but preferably two thirds of your plate vegetables for lunch and dinner. The other third is for your carbohydrates or whole grains and protein. Healthy carbs would be brown rice, quinoa, millet, buckwheat, pasta made with kamut or spelt, potatoe, or sweet potatoe.
This is the healthiest and best way to eat bar none. Yes fruits are healthy, but again it depends on the person and their body type. If you crave sweets a lot you would do best by reducing the number of fruits you consume to 2 or 3 per week, until you get your sugar cravings under control.
If you need more specific healthy eating guidelines for food portion size, say when eating out, you can roughly measure things using the palm of your hand. A piece of chicken or fish can be a little smaller that the palm of your hand. Whole grains the same thing. A slice of bread, (preferably made with kamut or spelt flour) is one serving. And there is no limit to the amount of vegetables you can eat.
Following these guidelines you will easily be on your way to achieving optimal health and your ideal weight.

Hi, I'm Sue-Anne... As a naturopath and weight loss specialist I do consultations by Zoom all around the world.
I created the Bodytypology Program for lasting weight loss. Eating right for your body type is a natural way to lose weight. But I found that unless we address the underlying emotional eating triggers or stress eating triggers, that are causing the uncontrollable cravings, weight loss will be temporary.
That is why in 2020 I trained to be a licensed R.T.T practitioner.
It stands for Rapid Transformational Therapy. It's basically a very powerful and efficient modality using deep relaxation to accesses the subconscious mind. We go back to scenes in your life where you picked up limiting beliefs.
We change the interpretation that you made, and we let go of all the thoughts, beliefs, and emotions that have been holding you back. We reframe them and give you new beliefs and a more positive mindset, that align with your desires. Typically in less than 3 sessions!
