5 tips to tame your baby bump

1. Trim Your Plate. When filling your plate, make sure you have proper portions sizes. Using a smaller salad plate will help you keep portions in check.

2. Grab Your Toes.
When you're feeling tired or stressed out your first instinct may be to grab a snack, but try stretching instead. Stretching can help you feel rejuvenated and provides long lasting energy.

3. Go Dutch.
When you're out on the town, try splitting a meal with a friend. Most restaurants serve portions that far exceed our dietary requirements for a single meal. Sharing food minimizes the chance you'll overeat.

4. Wake and Weigh.
Set a goal to step on the scale at the same time each week. When you stick to a routine it keeps you accountable and makes it easier to track you progress.

5. Get Less Comfortable. Ditch the sweatpants and hair rollers! Opt for something that makes you feel amazing. Studies show that you're less likely to overeat if you
feel confident.
