I just discovered that I can "dress" a salad with a couple of ounces of feta cheese and lots of tomatoes. I can have a big salad (that's really tasty) for only a couple of hundred calories. The feta and the juices from the tomatoes make a really amazing taste together!
After my evening meal I immediatly go and brush my teeth, The minty taste helps discourage me from snacking in the evening.
If you have to wake up early you might see yourself skipping breakfast. There is no need to. Split your breakfast. Have part at home/car/train and the rest in the office. E.g. if you have yoghurt with cereal and a slice of bread, take either one of them along. Two eating moment no extra calories!
A cup of herbal/decaffeinated tea can be counted with your daily water consumption. And it's relaxing, too!
Whenever I buy a snack, for example, almonds, I weigh out and pre-package multiple snack size bags so I can just grab and go. Depending on the snack, I'll do 3-5 bags at a time. I'll throw one them in the car, purse, etc. When I'm out, I'll have something to keep me satisfied instead fast food.
Every week I try a new healthy food, if I don't like I don't buy it again. But lately all the new food's I haven't tried turn out being really good.
If you feel that you had too much food or feel unconfortable! Get a cup of hot water and just add 1 tbsp of lemon this will refresh your stomach and at the same time burn fat.

Whenever you choose green leafy veggies, add a citrus to it i.e- mandarin oranges, grapefruit, oranges, lemons, etc... Your body naturally draws out more of the iron in the leafy greens when it metabolizes the citrus. Think: citrus+iron=MEGA IRON!!!
To add some fiber to a meal sprinkle in a high fiber cereal. I add a quarter to a half serving to regular cereal, yogurt, fruit salad or low fat pudding for the fiber and the crunch. This also allowed me to build my tolerance for fiber rich foods slowly.
