Cooking at home is once again trending. Box companies that send you all the ingredient to cook at home have made dining in the new “thing.” A little planning and a trip to the grocery store can help you do more cooking at home, and have food for the whole week.

And it also helps with portion control, so you won’t overeat either.
2. Food journals. Basic calorie counting is a great way to know what you’re eating. So often we fill ourselves with empty calories and wonder where the weight came from. When you keep a record, you’ll have more authority over your food.
