    Fitness expert John Basedow shares his 4 favorite tips for becoming a healthy eater in no time.

    John Basedow: Hey guys, John Basedow here with some habits to help you become a healthy eater.

    Number one; try to stick with four to six small balanced meals a day. This helps you stay in a muscle building, fat burning mode and also decreases cravings that lead to binges later on. Number two is you want to practice portion control during those meals. Your protein portion of the meal should be about the size of your clenched fist or the palm of your hand, your carbohydrate portion should be the same. If you are still hungry, fill the rest of your plate with vegetables, steamed vegetables or raw vegetables I find to be the best.

    Number three is stick with natural choices. It's made by man; you don't want to put it in your mouth. Natural choices are processed more readily by the body lead to less fat storage and also help you function better.

    Number four, don't starve and stuff which is a typical habit of many dieters. For instance you start starving yourself when you are beginning a diet when you can no longer tolerate the misery that you are creating you stuff yourself. This is a horrible practice.

    What it does is it basically creates preoccupations with food cravings and also binges and increases fat storage. Instead, stick with those three first tips, natural choices, portion control and four to six small balanced meals a day.

    It's that simple, you all know it, now practice it, your waistline is going to thank you and you are going to get the body that you want.
