How sugar is hidden on food labels
Check food labels carefully.

*******Sugar is often disguised using terms such as:

cane sugar or maple syrup
corn sweetener or corn syrup

honey or molasses
brown rice syrup
crystallized or evaporated cane juice
fruit juice concentrates, such as apple or pear
maltodextrin (or dextrin)
Dextrose, Fructose, Glucose, Maltose, or Sucrose

To set yourself up for success, think about planning a healthy diet as a number of small, manageable steps rather than one big drastic change. If you approach the changes gradually and with commitment, you will have a healthy diet sooner than you think.

Boca Burgers flame grilled original burgers (veggie burgers) taste kinda like burger king. My boyfriend even likes them! I also use fat free cheese, and healthy life makes wheat buns that are only 80 calories each! However, I refuse to give up the mayo! It's my guilty pleasure. emoticon

I already use skim milk and low fat meat. Next time I make a BLT I will use mustard. I haven't had anything this week with Mayo since I prefer mustard on my sandwhiches.

I am eating beanburgers.

Happiness is remembering what I really want.
Laughter is the best medicine. The best things in life are free.

Learn to say 'no' to the good so you can say 'yes' to the best.

Dream with no action = wishful thinking
Action with no plan = chaos
Dream + action + persistence = success

The ego tells me you can't do it. The spirit tells me I can.

Each time I say "no" to impulse eating, I will visualize fat melting off my body.

No matter what kind of hamburger I eat, I grill it on my George Foreman grill. The higher fat burgers shrink more, but you would be amazed to see how much fat comes out of even the lower-fat versions. I also use fat-free cheese slices and add a Mt. Olive sugar- and calorie-free sweet pickle. Take that, McDonald's! (Mine taste better, too.)

DON'T EVER GIVE UP!

Week #3

If you use whole milk, change over to 2%, if you use 2% change over to 1% and if you use 1% try changing to Fat Free.

or

Use mustard instead on mayo on your sandwiches. 1 serving of Hellman's mayo is 90 calories and 1 serving of French's Grey Poupon is 5 calories with no fat. There are many Gourmet Mustards on the market today.

or

It's hamburger season!!

If you eat higher fat burgers (75%) switch to 80%, 85% or leaner

MAKING HEALTHY CHOICES THAT LAST:

Letís also not forget the emotional aspect of change, particularly when it comes to food. As Iím sure you are well aware, emotions play a starring role in decisions around food for the vast majority of the population. If you make small changes to your diet consistently, allowing yourself time to integrate the changes into your routine and become comfortable with them, you will give your emotional and physical body the opportunity to shake each otherís hand and sign a peace treaty agreeing to move forward together in harmony. Itís a much nicer approach than all-out war, donít you think? The emotional aspect of change is often the most challenging!

Hereís the other thing: often when someone jumps into a healthy diet very quickly, they tend to overeat on the densest healthy foods such as big bags of nuts, dried fruits, whole grains, beans, oils and gourmet raw foods to try to replicate the heaviness of the foods they ate previously. While these foods have a place in a healthy diet, over-consuming them is only going to burden the digestive system even more, and it certainly wonít support the reasons you probably got into eating better in the first place, such as for energy, weight release, lightness, to heal symptoms, etc.


By slowly making changes and transitioning at a pace right for you, it is more likely you will avoid overeating, feeling deprived or restricted, or experiencing unpleasant symptoms. You will be giving yourself the best chance to let go of physiological and emotional attachments so that when you do make a change, it feels wonderful and sticks with you!
