my dark choc. almonds

always needed sweets everyday. I now have the 10 allowed dark chocolate almonds as my sweets for the day. I can grab one here and one there through out the day. one an hour would be sweets all day. emoticon this is my secret to keeping away from bad sweets. one ounce of dark chocolate is good for the heart and almonds are also good for you. ENJOY.

Admending my earlier secret (substitute alternatives)

Earlier I said I was substituting Good & Plenty licorice candy for licorice twists, because G & P was eaten slower. By the end of a few days I was starving! Why? I wondered. Lots of fruits and vegetables and whole grains. The only thing I could think of were the G&P candy pieces. I have decided it's too much refined sugar. I'll probably completely stop the G&P and stick with licorice root tea for the flavor. Alas, my licorice cravings go away eventually. emoticon

Substitutes for two of my chronic cravings

I have chronic cravings. emoticon I have found substitutes for some of the cravings, but not all. Here are the substitutes for two of the toughest: LICORICE (licorice root tea with no calories and Good and Plenty licorice with still has sugar but takes longer to eat. SALTY SNACKS: celery, red pepper sticks, green beans, etc., dipped in ranch dressing, preferably made with no fat sour cream, or with buttermilk, or with low fat sour cream. These two work. Still working on CHOCOLATE, though. emoticon

Flavor water to drink more

I keep iced herbal tea in the refrigerator. Just place three teabags in a 2-quart container with water overnight, and you have iced tea to wake up to in the morning. Plus, once the pitcher is empty, you know you've had your eight cups.

Dont be Generous with Greens

If your worrying about your intakes or what not, fear none about the veggies you consume beacuse they will for sure help you out later in the day. They will turn off hunger, prevent unecessary diseases, slim you down and make you feel and look like a naturally healthy person! If you get that urge to want to eat because your friend is, or you want to snack because your watching a movie, eat some mini carrots or some canned spinach or asparagus or any other veggies you love!

Always carry around a water bottle with you

Always carrying around a water bottle (be it throwing it into the car or toting it around in my purse) reminds me to reach my water limit and is an easy way to start incorporating water into your daily routines.

don't be caught without a snack

Carry a protein bar to stave off hunger. Or if you can, a protein drink.

brush and floss my teeth

I have a tendency to consume more calories eating snacks after dinner than I do all day. Brushing and flossing my teeth when I'm tempted to eat junk makes my mouth taste and feel good, and I'm less likely to eat. Plus, I hate flossing. More motivation to not eat.

Crazy for Coconut Oil

I have learned this week that if I eat a tbs of virgin coconut oil before my hard work out I can blast thru it. Before I had been drinking a half cup of black coffee (literally 4oz.) but after 15 minutes I was having a hard time focusing. So besides staying hydrated the coconut oil has really helped out with stamina and seems to clear some of the brain fog. I love the way it tastes too. emoticon
