sodas were my enemy, water is my friend

Who knew fiber would make such a difference in my weight loss? I bought berries fresh when I could and when I couldn't I bought frozen {which turned out to be cheaper and better}. Changed to whole wheat pasta, fresh veggies, high fiber cereals, sandwich thins and albacore tuna to start and no sodas!

Fruit snack!

Fruits can be boring sometimes. But what about frozen fruits? Sometimes, I just enjoy to pick up frozen raspberries or blueberries from a bowl. It makes me think I'm eating candies!

Cut the Calories when eating out!

I love salad bars, but to get my healthy protien and least one a week, I take a serving packet of TUNA. GREAT way to add GOOD protien. I also take a SPRITZ bottle for my salad dressing, that way I KNOW those calories, I am eating!

Fill your plate with non starchy vegetables

Since I've cut out the white carbs from my diet and replaced them with non starchy vegetables, I've managed to cut 400/500 calories a day and I haven't been hungry at all. Don't have to steam them; a hint of olive oil and/or chicken broth, and grill them, saute, or stir fry and they're great!

Water... water!

Everybody knows that drinking water is good for the health. In my case, even carying a bottle of water never motivated me. My new solution? Fruit flavoured water beverage! No sugar added, no calories (or almost nothing) and it tastes so good :)

"Sometimes it just looks better in the garbage than it will on me!"

My grandmother told me this once and I love this tip for it's simplicity.

The concept is basically, not everything on the plate has to go in your mouth. It's a little hard for me to do sometimes, since it involves unnecessary waste, but I still think it's a worthy healthy eating technique.

Vegetables!!!

-Half of your plate should be covered with vegetables! :)
-To enjoy them more, try spices and fines herbes
-Try new soup or potage recipes
-Search for new vegetables (like butternut squash) or new recipes (already tried cooking leek but not in a soup? :))

Bento

To help encourage my portion control, I eat only what I pack in my bento.

Not using Vending Machines at Work

In order to stop buying snacks from the vending machine at work I started carrying only large bills I would hide the ones and change in my car before work. At home the ones and change went into a piggy bank. emoticon
