I have started eating Kellogg`s frosted mini wheats for a healthy snack. 1 cup serving has 90% of your daily allowance of iron. I am a blood donor and eating things rich in iron is important. There are many flavors out there and I would encourage you to give it a try. I took 1 1/2 cups to the movies today and it was very satisfying where eating the much coveted buttery popcorn would have left me feeling guilty and miserable. There are 200 cals in a 1 cup serving.
ETFON4, I like your ideas. I eat Greek yogurt each morning and put in my blueberries and banana. Plus I add my flax seed and a small bit of cheerios. Never tried chia seeds. Keep wanting to do the lemon water but my brain does not function in the morning to have it first like the experts suggest. I am usually at work for lunch. Usally have a grilled chicken breast and a side salad with a plain tea to drink.

I count servings, not calories. With the right # of servings of the right types of foods, the calorie count will be within range. Before I did this, I drove myself crazy planning meals, looking up calorie counts and all that.

I put lemon in my water. I also put 2 drops of tabasco sauce and sometimes fresh ginger. It helps me drink my 8 glasses of water a day. I put 1 tsp. chia seeds in my oat bran. Gives me more then half the calcium I need in a day. I am lactose intolerant so cannot drink milk. I also eat raspberries, blackberries and blueberries and I feel they have been beneficial in speeding up my metabolism. I was just wondering if anyone else does anything they do daily that they think has helped them.
