Slow down

To help slow down your eating and allow your body to feel full on less food put down your fork between bites of food. By eating more slowly you allow your brain the time to receive the full signal from the stomach.

Three Bite Rule

When you're craving something that you know isn't on your healthful eating plan, don't deny yourself! It's been proven that just three normal bites of what you are craving can satisfy your craving. You don't have to eat the whole candy bar, piece of pie, cake or dessert.-same goes for any food.

Eat Real Foods!

Eating real foods: beef, chicken, fish, eggs, fruits, vegetables - real whole food - will take you where you need to go. And you'll be happier than if you'd eaten a piece of "healthy" chocolate cake or WW franken-food brownie.

Fresh Breath

On days when you are having trouble keeping up with drinking water, eat a strong mint (or brush your teeth!) Water always tastes better when minty fresh breath.

You can eat anything you want and as much as you want if...

You can eat anything you want and as much as you want if you change what you want! I attribute my success to focusing on transformative change, not dieting. It is all about taking great care of yourself, aligning your head and your heart, and believing you can change.

Sweet tooth

I eat a piece of fruit as part of each meal to curb my sweet tooth. Very helpful. Cut it up and put it on your plate as part of the meal.

Look no further...God makes the BEST food available!

No matter how you slice it or dice it...pound for pound, the BEST food around -- is all natural, no-nonsense, "Garden of Eden" whole foods. Produce, not processed. I say, "Food is from heaven, diets are from hell." Add at least ONE nature-made food to each meal, then more as you go.

A La Carte Your Restaurant Salads

This is a useful tip for when you are eating out. Restaurants generally set up ingredient portions (nuts, berries, cheese) ahead of time for salads. Ask them to bring you your salad with add-ons in their pre-measured cups. That way you can control these portions on your salad!

Greek yogurt as snak

I am full and satisfied after eating 4-6 oz of greek yogurt. It is a great source of protein and is a thicker (like pudding) satisfying snack. I have to be careful not to eat too much a day because I really like it!
