Tip 1:  Increase calorie intake.  Some people increase the calories by a couple 100 or increase the intake of vegetable to keep from being hungry.

Tip 2:  Some wants a more substantial dinner so they will save both portions of meat for dinner and both portion of vegetable for lunch.

Tip 3:  Rearrange the portions to better fit your eating habits.  I enjoy a mind morning snack and I lover deserts.  I would eat one fruit portion mid morning and use the other portion of fruit and melba toast as a desert.
