Drink that Water!

I have a hard time getting my 8 glasses of water every day, even though I keep a case of bottled water under my desk at work. My secret- put a few bottles on my desk. Seeing the water helps remind me to take a swig!

Hidden veggies/fruits

I like to puree veggies or fruits and sneak them into baked goods, mashed potatoes(pureed cauliflower) and in turkey burgers to add flavor. I also add to smoothies to get my intake of fruits and veggies.
My son doesn't know that he is eating veggies and doesn't complain.

Hate eating Veggie?

Try adding pea and carrots, or mixed vegetables to rice or pasta or when making baked potatoes scoop out the flesh after its been baked and mixing it like mash potato but add spinach or broccoli to it and adding it back into the skin for twice baked potatoes!

Unhealthy Snacks

Instead of depriving myself of my craving, I give myself a small portion or a healthy alternative. So for an ice cream craving, I'd go for a nonfat smoothie. For chocolate, I choose zucchini brownies.

Drink your milk!

It is filling. It solidifies in the system. If you are hungry and you have tried to fill up by eating, make sure to get your two glasses per day in. It will make a world of difference. Plus it will get your stomach moving as well. (Not so nice to mention but a definite fact)

Water to fight Hunger

So when I get hunger cravings, I drink some water. Til I feel like my belly is full. That helps keep me from eating unhealthy stuff. Plus, it helps get those 8 glasses out of the way much faster. Sometimes I feel hungry two minutes after I drank, well I just drink some more!!!

Use food psychology

I "psych myself out" when it comes to unhealthy food. If I see fatty snacks in the breakroom at work I think about how they are probably stale from being out or that a lot of people may have touched them. Or I will pick out one thing about the food that I might not like and magnify it.

Bigger breakfasts curb nighttime snaking

Late night snacking used to be my biggest problem, but soon after I started eating bigger breakfasts, I noticed that I wasn't snacking at night anymore.
