Read Nutritional Information Pamphlets

If you're at Starbucks and thinking about getting that cookie, check the numbers first. Using the justification that "oatmeal and raisins are healthy" won't make that 370-calorie cookie any lighter! Knowing the calories up front will help you decide if it's worth the extra 45 min. in the gym.

Pick food you like!

It is so much easier to stick to eating healthy when you are choosing foods you actually like and enjoy. Personally, I love so many of the fruits and berries that are good for me to eat!

The F Word

Fiber is by far my greatest discovery because it makes you feel full while still keeping your calrie budget in check. Also, it will keep you regular. Just make sure you drink plenty of water or else it could make a blockage.

FIBER!

One word, two syllables: FI-BER!

A couple years ago, without sharing too much information, I was having some digestive issues. I talked to my GP and she suggested I add more fiber to my diet, and I have never felt better.

Healthy Food Shoping

Shop only the outer perimeter of the grocery store. Nothing is good down the isles

Portion Control

Whenever I buy food that has multiple servings (like crackers, nuts, dried fruit) I figure out how many servings are in the package and I write that number on the package with a black sharpie marker. Everytime I have a serving I write a little check on the front of the package.

Eating enough dietary fibre

By eating less wholemeal bread I got constipated. 1/4 cup oat bran and 1/4 cup processed wheat bran plus cereal and 2 teaspoons psyllium husks with breakfast; and natural wheat bran and processed wheat bran for desert. The biggest trick was having bran with desert as well as for breakfast.

Lip gloss helped with my cravings

There are times when I crave something sweet. I'm not really hungry. I definitely don't want those calories. So, I have a variety of flavored lip glosses. I've found them in Twinkie, Banana Split, Fudge Brownie, etc. They're my no-calorie dessert.

Help with drinking water

I knew that I needed to drink 8 cups of water a day, but hated plain water. I now add the individual flavor packets to my bottle of water. I use different flavors throughout the day and no longer think of it as drinking water. It just tastes good with few or no calories.

Eat Fruits and Veggies

It's true, fruits and veggies actually are good for you, and they fill you up without feeling bloated or guilty. I try to eat 5 to 7 servings a day, low calorie but high in nutrients, vitamins, and minerals.
