I agree - no0 licking the spoon and that is very hard to NOT do.

Green Tea

I rediscovered green tea! I especially like Stash's blueberry iced tea powders. They come in individual packages that you can add to your bottle of water plus they only have 10 calories for a delicious satisfying drink that's good for you.

When I make a quiche or pie, I use cottage cheese as the bottom layer sprinkled with breadcrumbs.

Choo choooooo!!!

Chewing! I just saw the Sparkpeople article about this and I couldn't agree more. Making sure I take time over at least one meal a day, and throughly chewing my food means that I enjoy it more, I take longer to eat it and I actually feel FULL when I've finished.

Be prepared = no choice but to eat healthy.

Either having meals planned out for the week or easy, healthy meal components to pull together at eating time helps from straying away from eating healthy.

When I could I Did

When I weighed 204 and was very out of shape I could not do any kind of exercise and could barely walk.. Then I LOST WEIGHT. The doctor told me to hunt a gym that had a good bike to strengthen my legs.
I did and go most days and they show me the machines I can do. It is great.

Insomnia

Don't Let Insomnia stop you from doing a workout routine the next day! Just make sure to get plenty of sleep or take a nap in the middle of the day, if you can.

Eyeing the Measurements

Sometimes it's difficult to stop the meal in progress and say "Hey wait a minute while I grab my measuring cup!" so it's good to train yourself to memorize what a cup or a half cup of grains or peas etc. looks like, so you can make your best estimate when you sit down to a meal at home or at a resta...

Visualizing ingredients

When faced with choice of tempting foods, I visualize the ingredients, i.e. French Silk Pie ingredients: white four. Lard, water, salt, butter, raw eggs, chocolate, sugar, vanilla. 4 servings of cream! Opt for fresh fruit, dipped in dark chocolate, 2 strawberries, perfect!
