Add spinach to your sub instead of iceberg lettuce! It tastes much richer and has much more nutrients.
If you can't handle just spinach, do half and half!
I get an iced coffee with splenda and whip cream. I love to watch the whip cream melt and then it looks like a "latte". Way less calories and a great tasting indulgence!
Hooked on a certain sugary cereal? Mix it with plain Cheerios! My kids & I do this. Most of them are SO sweet and strongly flavored, you won't even notice the difference!!!
You know what red-letter foods are: the ones that - if they are opened you will eat them all, or until you throw up, just because they are the foods or snacks you love....for whatever reason!
Having my blender and making really good tasting protein drinks helps me feel like I'm having a treat but it's good for me. I keep frozen berries of all kinds in my freezer.
While I like to take leftovers to eat for lunch at work, sometimes it just doesn't work out. On those days, I'll open a can of soup that I keep in my desk along with a plastic storage container. That way I have a bowl in which to heat up my food and a lid for storage if there are leftovers afterward
I found out that when I want to eat out of stress or boredom I will read. This way I am keeping my mind off of food and doing something that will reduce my stress.
I found that when I have a breakfast high in protein, I am hungry for lunch later in the day and don't scarf my food down because I'm so famished! I go for meals (within my calories) including eggs, yogurt, milk; even Lean Cuisine and Smart Ones make some yummy breakfast meals with lots of protein!
Ever since I have dropped anything containing wheat or gluten my weight has started to come off a lot easier. My blood sugar has balanced. My thinking is clear. I have ten times more energy than I have ever had.
I usually eat breakfast and lunch at my desk, which makes portion control a bit challenging. I invested in one of the Fit'n'Fresh kits from the Spark Store and keep a small portable scale from the set in my desk drawer, along with an inexpensive set of dry and wet measuring cups.
