Busy But Healthy show host Kristine Fretwell answers your health & fitness questions. This weeks question is from Christina. She writes, “I’m a mom and have a husband trying to gain weight, I’m trying to lose, and we also have kids? What’s the best option for dinner?”

My advice: For the main course, always make a higher protein, lower carb meal.  Examples: Turkey Meatloaf, Chicken Breasts, Lean Steak, Stir Frys etc. Check the recipe index. For the person trying to gain: Large serving of the main, plus a serving of carbs on the side (eg. brown rice).  For the person trying to lose, just 1 serving of the main course, plus veggies on the side (no additional carbs like rice).  As for the kids, they can have a small portion of the main course, plus rice, then if they have their milk, and fruit for dessert. Hope this answers your question!
