Actually, I would just add on to the tooth brushing that brushing right after eating each meal helps me not want dessert. I want to end the meal with a good taste in my mouth--especially after a spicy meal, my favorite type of food. If I brush my teeth, I am in a better mind set to decide whether I really need dessert.
Also, putting down my fork between bites, and being sure I put less food on my plate than I put on my husband's plate are great tips. (Plus, don't snack with my husband)
If you have health, you probably will be happy, and if you have health and happiness, you have all the wealth you need, even if it is not all you want.
That's a great one - fresh teeth! Keep on commuting in Montreal. Even winter cycling is great.
If you feel like munching all evening after dinner, brush your teeth earlier. I'm so lazy sometimes that just the tought of having to brush again before I go to bed will keep me far away from the kitchen :)
Recording every bite is what is the most helpful to me. I have a program on my palm devise to enter food and exercise. Even though I know this helps I still don't do it every day.
A great Spark article that I read yesterday, Stop & Chew Your Dinner, has some great advice!
I happened to finish last at Outback Steakhouse last night and it was awesome. We all had more time to talk about the fun times that were had on New Years.

My favorite tip is "portion control". I couldn't believe how much I was overeating when I started measuring my food. I don't need to measure my food as much now, but at the beginning it was an eye opener. It has definitely helped me make progress!
That is an excellant plan. Wait until you sit down at the table, not during cooking. I'll try it.
With the beginning of a new year, lets take time to post some tips that have helped us towards our goal.
One of my favorite is to only eat at the table. Not in front of the TV, not while I cook, not as I pass thru the kitchen. Even snacks are placed on a plate and eaten with determination. I eat 5-6 times a day, small meals and snacks, so I eat about every 2-3 hours. It is much easier to tell myself to just wait, you get to sit down and eat in xx minutes.
Lets hear some more goodies.
One Day at a Time:
1) 10,000 steps daily
2) fruit & vegie at every meal
3) aerobic or strength train every day
4) 7 hours sleep daily
5) check in with SP daily
June 2014 goals:
1) lose 4 pounds
2) finish walk way
3) finish blocks for Forest Service quilt
4) scan old photos
It's never too late to be what you might have been.
