Don't deprive yourself!

I dont deprive myself of anything that I am craving. Once in awhile i get a craving for chocolate so instead of buying a whole chocolate bar I bought a bag of chocolate chips, if i have a craving i just grab a few (literally 3-5) chips and i am satisfied!!!

Junk foods

Having lost so much weight by a simple lifestyle change by cutting out or drastically cutting down on snacks like potato chips, etc. I have moved on to making my life healthier because instead of snacking on chips, I now snack on a fruit or 2...and if it is not in the house you can't snack on it

low-carb diet

We have greatly reduced (although certainly not eliminated) our carb intake. This has really added to the speed with which I've lost weight (although the loss is still reasonable). I am not overly hungry but rarely top out the calorie recommendations from Sparks

The Dollar Tree

The Dollar Store has a 'snack food'; a small tin of ham, tuna or chix salad w/5 crackers for just $1. This lasts 2 meals - the salad on 2 pieces of grain bread; the crackers w/a bowl of soup. The calories-very low emoticon . I threw the box out; sorry, don't have specifics but low cal. emoticon

Pizza fix

If I crave pizza, I'll put marinara sauce (or spagetti sauce) in a pita pocket and add shredded cheese or string cheese and toast it in the toaster oven until the cheese melts. It's so good!
You can also add green peppers, mushrooms, & more. emoticon

salad plate

I eat each meal from a salad plate. It makes me look at my plate like I am eating a lot. It takes less food to fill up a salad plate. And less food means less calories.

Plan my meals

Every week on my day off I figure out what i'll be making for dinner, and packing for lunch/snacks etc for the next week, entering it in the Nutrition Tracker. I can fine tune it all so that I meet my nutritional needs and stay in my target caloric range!

Chocolate

I crave chocolate and I recently have read an article that said consuming chocolate produces chemicals that make you feel happy. I suffer from depression but letting myself have chocolate and not feeling guilty keeps me going.

Pack the night before

I make sure I pack my healthy breakfast and lunch the night before so I'm not hurried the next morning and either pack something I shouldn't or forget the entire thing

Veggie Soup

I've been really enjoying my all veggie soup. It's been great to have on hand for right before dinner. I find if I eat a satisfying bowl of it I don't want as many carbs for dinner. It's working out great!
