  • A big bag of potatoe chips is the absolute worse thing that can happen to me. I refuse to have them in the house because I like eating them from the big taking out all the biggest chips first. - 9/20/2012 10:30:10 AM
  • I have to learn to slow down. I eat like I am in a race. I think it is from my childhood. If I wanted seconds I had to beat my brother too it. - 9/18/2012 1:00:40 PM

  • I agree with everything. Also when eating my Fage Greek yogurt, I eat it with a demitasse spoon, it makes it last longer, taste special....and reminds me of Rome where they serve their gelato with tiny tiny spoons... - 8/19/2012 6:44:38 AM

  • I ALWAYS lose more weight when I intentionally pack on the veggies... Even if I don't track or follow any other diet method. While, I am trying to make sure I track my food, the veggie method still holds true. The best thing I have come up with is hiding veggies in everything I eat. If I simply must have that drive through cheeseburger, I order it with extra extra veggies like tomatoes, lettuce, and onions. Seems to make a huge difference.

    My newest trick (which really seems to help a lot) is that I always keep a bag of baby spinach in the house- the kind that is pre-washed and ready to eat. I choose spinach because I know it's nutrition value is great (greater than a number of veggies) with such few calories. I add it to everything that I can... Especially sandwiches... by at least a cup full. It adds great flavor and a heaping serving of veggies, but not the kind you might just pick at and feel bored about eating. I even add it to sandwiches I bring home from restaurant take-out. - 7/26/2012 9:02:43 PM

  • I have learned the hard way that I can't keep Oreos in the house ~ my husband is the same with Cheez-it's. So we have a pact to not buy them at all...

    Thanks for your help on this. I am trying to get my husband to do this Sparks with me. - 7/26/2012 3:34:00 PM
  • my trick I use at restaurants is when I get that satisfied feeling I put the trash from the table on my plate. That is a sure STOP sign and works every time. - 7/26/2012 12:54:22 PM
