Focus on TONS of veggies and more protein. for example if you are doing smoothies you are probably mixing in as many as 3 servings of fruit, then having more fruit later in the day – Try and eat your food to its whole-ness. Try and avoid fruit smoothies and other smoothie type drinks if at all possible.
