Temptation

When you've been eating healthy for a long time and you see that chocolate bar staring you in the face and you just don't think you can resist, don't! Take the chocolate bar and melt it down to dunk some strawberries in it! You deserve it, but don't let it take the place of staying healthy!

A Salad A Day

I find that eating a Salad a day helps to get your fruit/veggie servings in, keeps the weight loss moving, and keeps me regular. I never was excited about salads before, but jazz them up with craisins, etc... It will help you reach your goals.

Stick with the Plan

The thing that is working the most for me is to plan my meals. It really helps to just know that I already have it worked out and I am less likely to wander into "Junk Food Land".

Nutrition tracker

It's hard to always find the motivation to log meals into the tracker but what helps me out a lot is as soon as I'm done grocery shopping, I add all of the items I bought into the tracker and save it in my favorites. That way, when I'm eating it later in the week, it's a breeze to do.

V8 in the afternoon

Have a glass or two of V8 in the afternoon instead of a coffee or diet pop. It will fill you with some fiber and you will be getting at least a serving of vegetables depending on how much you drink.

flavored frozen grapes

Wash green grapes and shake dry. You don't want them completely dry. Place them in a storage container or freezer bag and sprinkle a package of sugar free gelatin (any flavor)over them. Shake well and place in freezer. Enjoy as a sweet snack any time of day!
