Eat Mindfully

Eat consciously and calmly, focusing on the flavours and textures of the food. With an attitude of gratitude and appreciation slowly savour every mouthful emoticon

Make a "Middle of the Store" shopping list to shop sensibly.

I have a hard time planning meals and making a shopping list because what I've planned for may turn out to be too expensive, or I unexpectedly find another (healthy!) option that sounds better than what I planned. However, mindless wandering ends in disaster! Instead, I let myself wander the perimeter of the store, where even impulse buys will be healthy, but make a specific list for items I need from the center aisles. It gives my more freedom when I shop, but still keeps me from buying cookies!!

Decadent Water?

I fill a gallon pitcher with water and keep it in the fridge. What motivates me to drink it? The cucumber slices I put in it! It makes the water so crisp and refreshing, just like a day at a fancy spa!

Oatmeal sticks with you

I have oatmeal for breakfast. I add a Tbl of raisins, 2 dried apple rings and cinnamon. After cooking I add 12 chopped almonds and sweeten with an artificial sugar (only 1 a day). Then I add a splash of milk. It keeps me satisfied most of the morning and tastes great!

Healthy options means making healthy choices

My downfall is potato chips, crackers and chocolate. I love these! Of course, the sugar and salt don't contribute to healthy eating. The other day, I bought some "baked" potato chips that were low in fat. As I sat eating them, I read the label. Yuck - that was enough to say no to even this supposedly healthy option. My secret - don't buy them and bring them in my house to tempt me. Making healthy choices means having healthy options.

Counting saturated fat grams

I counted calories and walked (and walked) for several years. I was stuck! I knew it had to be a food thing, but couldn't eat any less. I went to my dietician and she suggested counting saturated fat grams too. After that, I have dropped a pound a week!

work on portion control

Before I serve a meal, I determine exactly what the correct portion is ahead of time and serve just that amount on the plate. Any left-overs are immediately put away so i'm not tempted to give myself seconds because its still sitting in the pan. emoticon

Watch the carb

Nothing is off limits but eating more fruits/veggies & less bread, rice & pasta is working. I'm not tracking but try to eat fewer servings of starches and eat them earlier in the day. It is good for me to eat a lean meat, veggies & skim milk for dinner. It is pretty simple and it is doing the trick.

Drink water lose weight

While I am preparing my breakfast, lunch and dinner, I drink 2 cups of water. The water helps to keep me from over eating because it fills me up and it adds to my over all health during the day. After my daily workout I drink 2 cups of water to replace what I have lost and this brings my total up to 8 cups already. If I work out twice there is 10 cups of water and then in the evening when I am relaxing, I will have another 2 cups. How easy is that to get your H2o into your daily recommendations

A newsy sugar determining fact

When looking at how many grams of sugar are in a food, or drink, divide by 4(32g divided by 4 =8). This tells you how many tsp of sugar are in a serving! 8tsp is far to much for this Sparker!!
