Squeeze a lemon in your ice water to help get rid of water weight after too much sodium. I usually sweeten mine with liquid berry stevia. Really refreshing on a hot day.

fresh fruit and veggies are always food. i like bell peppers and carrots are my favorite. any other veggies i will generally want some dip.

proper portions of dried fruits, nuts, cheese are also good. i generally don't crave for salty things, but sweets or chocolate.

I like a chia seed pudding because it is a lot of protein in it and very little carbs, as well. 1/4 c chia seeds and 1 c milk (I use coconut milk or almond milk). I add unsweetened coconut, and Stevia, sometimes I add a strawberry cut up in tiny pieces and/or some nuts.

Eating some almond butter that is just almonds is good, too. Most of thetimes I do not et anything for a snack before I go to bed.

Frozen grapes, pistachios and if you have a sweet tooth banana nut or peanut butter cheerios right out of the box. (measure them of course) These things work for me.

Try carrots, vegetable snacks, maybe even some celery with peanut butter, or even some fruit.

I've been on a great streak and intend to keep it up until I get into my rythem-so it's no longer a streak but a good habit :)

However, last night I felt a bit weak. Fortunately I stayed within my ranges eatting but ended up pondering two things.

One: Sodium. I fell for some Chili Cheese Fritos, with all the sodium that comes with it, and this morning I'm feeling it! What is the maximum sodium your should consume in a day? What is the best way to zap it if you have overconsumed?

Two: Night snacking. I work 12 hour shifts in a four day block, and when I am done, I have 1 hour before I head to bed. So my hubby and I like to sit down and watch a few shows DVRed. The issue is that he has very high metabolism and snacks up a storm. I used to join him but can't as much anymore. I am actually hungry then, but what are some satisfying snack alternatives I could munch on later, that I won't regret? Please advise.

Thanks for all who answer :)

Sincerely,

Jen in Milwaukee
