Gasp

I save some calories every day for sweets or ice cream in the evening. I know, GASP! But, I don't feel deprived, and I'm still within my calorie range. And, I'm quite a healthy eater during the day.

Sugar

Perhaps many of you know about this but I only just found out. STEVIA is a natural sugar. It is used just like sugar and has ZERO calories.

Meal Plan

If you cannot live without it - work it in.

You don't need to feel deprived. Work in the foods you think you cannot live without - in the long run, this will keep you on track.

This is a "rest of your life" lifestyle change.

Watch What You Eat.

If you don't like it...Don't Eat It!!!! Why waste precious calories on stuff that you really don't like. Think like a child and eat only what you like. It won't kill you to leave something on your plate because it's nasty.

You don't have to be perfect

Doing well at being positive is accepting that we can't be that way 100% of the time. We just need to practice bouncing back from the negative times.

Getting Infants To Eat What they Don't Like

When feeding my infant, I was told to put a little of the dessert last on the spoon and the vegetables first. Once she tasted the "dessert" she would continue to eat with no problems!

Save $s and Calories while giving your meal a crunch.

If you're on a budget, or trying to drop a few pounds,why not give this a try? Make up your bolognese or curry etc as usual, but substituting a diced potato, chick peas or beans for 1/4 of the meat. This saves calories, and money or it may just stretch a meal for an unexpected guest.

Sticky Situations
