One Week Later

Monday, May 20, 2013

It was a week ago today that I visited the dietician. I had a crazy-busy rest of my week (in Atlanta for meeting of about 30 people that I was in charge of) and couldn't even begin to think about the lessons the dietician talked about with me. Today I sat down with her list of fiber+protein and thought about combos that appeal to me for my end-of-workday snack.

applesauce cup + almonds
celery + Babybel
carrots + hardboiled egg
blueberries + cottage cheese
apple + peanut butter
cucumber + Greek yogurt

And then I thought about the strategies to simply eat less. Here is what I know I can do.
1. No seconds
2. Put fork down while chewing
3. Fill half my plate with veggies

The hardest one for me will be to fill half my plate with veggies. Tonight, however, I plan to make it easy on myself by making a stir fry (tofu and veggies)!

How have you all been? emoticon

    i love the idea of putting your fork down as you chew. I tend to eat really quick ... inhale my food. Those fiber and proten combos sound appealing also. Good luck!

    Those snacks sounds amazing!!! Filling half of the plate with veggies could be so simple...if the other half wasn't full of pizza. ;)

    Glad you made it through your work trip!

    A great trick i have is to take a sip of water in between each bite - not only do you get your water in (I average 3 glasses for one meal) but it fills you up faster!

    Great choices! Ugh portion control! I have to work on no seconds and take time to CHEW!!! I feel like I shovel my food in my mouth. Exercise is so much easier than mindful eating!!!
