no food is good, no food is bad. Depriving yourself of food you like is counterproductive and makes you crave it all the more.
low fat and diet foods fool you into thinking you can eat twice as much because they've only got half the fat, or it's the fat you want and after eating the low fat, you feel dissapointed.
smaller portions of favourites, and being more creative in the kitchen with herbs and spices makes dieting seem more of a pleasure than a punishment.
But, that's only my opinion.
I've heard Herbalife is awesome. My sister in law loved it so much she started selling it. 6 kids and 5 months later (after the birth of her last) she is weighing at around 135.
-Replace EVERYTHING you make with ground beef with ground turkey.
-Stop buying tuna with oil go with tuna with water.
-If you are on the go and dont have time for a healthy meal or to really think about your hunger instead of going to the drive through go to the gas station and pick up a slim fast (or something like it) and a string cheese. That kept me going till dinner yesterday.
-Mix turkey chilie with those little oyster crackers you can have 36 for like 60 calories that way you wont get carried away with regular crackers.
-At dinner load up on veggies and other low fat items to go with your main dish that way you can have less of the main dish and still walk away full.
-Make tuna salad (and everything else that calls for mayo) with mirical whip it takes some getting used to but I like it better now.
-Only have diet snacks in the house (weight watchers makes some yummy diet brownies)
-If you are going to bread use shake and bake it seems to be healthier if you can avoid breading do so and completly avoid frying.
-Have one cheat meal a week (this will give you something to look forward to and you wont cheat throughout the week if you know you will get that BK for lunch on Saturday..:0)
-Replace sugar with sweatner, butter with spread, Vit D milk with 1%, get low fat cheese, and lite yogurt...this adds up.
Hope this helps
Homemade vegetable stews
low fat cottage cheese
low fat plain yogurt
Lots...Egg beaters with a slice of cheese on a bagel thin; protein shakes; a small minute rice with a barber foods chicken kiev or one of the other flavors(600 cals but fills you up and no overdoing it-regardless easy meal) or you can do the minute rice with Gordons grilled tilapia and it is only 310 calories; lots of chicken breast from deli (low sodium); skinny cow ice cream cones; crabcakes (surprisingly only 130 cals each-frozen section; string cheese, yogurt, atkins peanut butter cups (yum)
Clean Eating has been a key to my success! It is not for everyone, but if you can commit to 80-90% of the time you will see results! Check out one of the Clean Eating teams here on spark, google Tosca Reno or Clean Eating. Tosca Reno has a great little book called: Just the Rules.
