After dinner, I immediately prepare lunch for the next day and clean up the kitchen. I grab enough water to keep me drinking the rest of the night. If I'm a allowed a snack later, I take it with me and then the kitchen is closed for the night.
A tablespoon of peanut butter in my oatmeal with a sprinkle of Splenda is my FAVORITE breakfast! It makes me look forward to morning!
Take the time to set a place and eat your meals at the table. Don't do anything else while eating. Mindfulness during mealtimes will go a long way to helping you feel full and satisfied. And, even better, you will eat less!
I've re-focused my weight loss efforts through choosing foods that truly fuel my body. While I can plan for treats, they're so often empty calories that add nothing to my health. Nutritious foods are generally higher volume foods too which helps me with staying full for longer.
Weight Watchers makes these scrumptious desserts found in the freezer section. They are low in fat and keep me from eating a whole package of Oreos. I LOVE the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Sundae!!!!!
I can't keep unhealthy food (like all that Easter candy) around the house, so I take it into the office. I put it somewhere I can't see it and won't constantly walk by it, and let my coworkers take care of it for me. They enjoy it and I'm not tempted.
I keep my cell phone with me at all times - even in the kitchen when cooking.
On a holiday, its always hard for me to control myself. There are tonssss of "appetizers" all over the entire day. To prevent overeating, i put a veggie tray next to every munchie food (piggies in a blanket, shrimp, keilbasa, etc...) so i can eat something else.
I always have a glass of water with lots of ice in it sitting beside me. When I feel like I want to eat, I chew on the ice. Not only does it keep me for unneeded calories but it helps me get all the water I need.
By not eating meat I am forcing myself to make healthy choices so that I can get in my protein and iron counts. I get to be inventive, and source out new recipes to try. Legumes and tofu have become my new best friend.
