Satisfy with Prep Time

Taking time to prepare a snack or meal helps to satisfy hunger. By putting in the effort to clean and chop fruit or to prepare a healthy entree, I find that my hunger is more satisfied than with a quick grab and eat snack or 90-sec microwave meal.

You Can have dessert!

Lots of people have a sweet tooth and need a little "something" after they eat. If you want dessert, have it just watch the portion size. Take only a little bit and savor it. Take small bites and enjoy every one. And don't feel guilty. You didn't blow your diet, you are just human!

Great nutition and taste for breakfast

I used to eat cereal with milk at breakfast. Now I have 1/2 cup cottage cheese with cut up fresh fruit, and then a bit of cereal on top [the way you sometimes see yogurt with granola on top in an individual serving]. This gives me more protein and I find it staves hunger off for longer. Yummy!

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.
