Holidays

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.

Overcoming Grazing

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.

Eatting Meatless

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.

'Smart' salad dressing

Always get salad dressing 'on the side'..then dip your fork in it with each bite of salad....You get the flavor & MUCH fewer calories...even with higher calorie dressings!

Instead of Oil

Instead of olive or another cooking oil, I use non-fat cooking spray to make fried eggs, skillet potatoes, and to get the herbs to stick to my vegies before I roast them! It works for me and eliminates the excess calories.

Vinegar

Instead of salad dressing, try pouring a little plain Balsamic Vinegar on your salad. It's only about 5 calories per Tbsp & No Fat! And it's very tasty. :-)
(It's also good poured over sliced strawberries & grilled veggies)
Added bonus...vinegar can help reduce cholesterol

Getting 8 cups of water a day

Drink one cup of water before a meal, and one cup of water after the same meal. It adds up to 2 cups with breakfast, 2 with lunch, 2 with a snack, and 2 with dinner, all added up to 8 glasses a day! You'll meet the goal no problem! ^_^

Breakfast

I used to never eat breakfast, partly because I couldn't be bothered thinking about what to eat. Now I make the same thing every day - oatmeal. It's a bit boring, but I dress it up with cinammon/vanilla/nutmeg/raisins, and I don't miss breakfast and sabotage my efforts.
