A little bit of humor :)

Putting a funny picture of a fat woman/man on your fridge can make you think twice before starting to eat for no reason! :P

When I need motivation to work out!

I subscribe to several cheap magazines. I have made a rule that I will NOT read the magazines unless I am working out on my elliptical trainer. When the magazine comes in the mail, I immediately put it in my workout room where I won't be tempted to read it while I sit on the couch, eat a meal, etc

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

small snack

I eat an early breakfast so I carry a 100 cal snack that has some fat and protein for late morning. I can have it where ever it's convenient with a 1/2 cup coffee and a full glass of water. That way I can eat a late lunch and not be starving before supper. emoticon

Eating slower

I use chopsticks to make myself eat slower. I put them down in between bites so it adds a little more time.

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.
