With the Bright Line Eating food plan, it may seem like the amount of food you’re eating doesn’t vary. But actually, you can dramatically vary the “amount of food” you’re eating (the calories in the food) by picking either heavier or lighter choices in each category. For example, both 6 oz. of steamed broccoli and 6 oz. of roasted butternut squash count as a vegetable serving, but the butternut squash is a much heavier choice, packing about three times the punch (in terms of calories or food energy) as the broccoli. On a day with lots of activity, just include more heavy choices in your food plan.
