I used to eat huge handful of baby spring mix with every meal. I didn't put any dressing or add other toppings, I just ate it alongside whatever else I was having.

For me it was 100 calorie snack packs ... I needed to have the same taste but i needed them to be less than the real thing .. not sure that makes much sense though .

At the beginning I kind of ate crappy food. Mostly frozen meals...I had to relearn portions and I also worked full time and went to school at night, so I heavily relied on pre-prepared foods to get me to stay in my calorie ranges.

But, I'm rediscovering carrots and celery with hummus or some other kind of dip. Sounds silly but I hadn't actually eaten them for months. I had some out at a party the other night and now I keep eating them. Right now I'm eating them with an onion sour cream dip from the store, which happens to only be 60 calories for 2tbsp...about the same as hummus.

So many great reminders.....salsa on anything instead of fat laden sauces and dressings. oh, and peanut flour to make into a very lowfat and healthy peanut butter - lots of tasty filling protein!

Nectarines and red pears. But they are seasonal and I try to get them when they are available.

Brussel sprouts have been an consistant favorite. New favorite? Frozen fruit.

veggie soups. i ate 0.5-1 litre as my dinner. Fatless, of course.

I'm doing a 21 days no binge streak. FOR ME, it's been TREMENDOUSLY helpful to be accountable to other people and to compete against myself. Please join us if you think it'll work for you too:

Spinach salad for me. With a variety of berries and a small amount of dressing. Still a favourite.

I ate more green vegetables with my dinner than I did before -- more than I do now.

I love brussel sprouts too! I try to prepare a new vegetable each week. Sometimes that is a grain or fruit instead, but the idea is to get more nutrition and flavor and variety in my life.

Celebrate every day.

Grapefruit! Love it, and it's just getting to be the peak season pretty soon, when they're sweet and juicy and loaded with vitamins :) Mmmm

I've only been at this for 6 months, but nothing really sticks out in my mind. I just try to get as much variety as possible in the fruit and veggie catgory. I never used to eat veggies and now I can't get enough.

It was so long ago I can barely remember. But I did eat a lot of Laughing Cow Light cheese and egg whites.

Trail mix because of the protein.

Mine was carrots and celery with Peanut butter. I still eat them now as part of a healthy raw food diet, but the pb is now nut butter.

grapefruit salad for snack. One grapefruit sectioned out, one banana, and few strawberries. Grapefruit just came in season but strawberries are incredibly high priced.

Did you have a favorite go-to food when you first lost weight? Now that I track on line I find it harder to go back to see what I ate when I was most successful...not impossible though.

For me it was melon - either watermelon or cantelope. Also low fat string cheese.
