Fixing My Chocolate Fix

I admit I am a chocoholic, and unsweetened cocoa powder is how I get my 'fix.' I use it daily in smoothies, oatmeal, coffee, tea- now I prefer it to chocolate syrup, etc. It's great for getting the healthy antioxidant benefits of chocolate without the extra calories or fat in other types of it.

20 Different Foods

I have heard somewhere that the Japanese try to eat 30 different foods a day. Since the style of food we eat and the number of courses we eat varies quite a bit from the Japanese cuisine, I try to eat 20 different foods a day. This helps ensure that I get enough servings of each food group.

Increasing calcium in your diet

If the recipe calls for 1 cup of sugar, I put a generous 1/4 cup of instant dry milk in the bottom of the measuring cup and then add the sugar. You can experiment with your recipes and add more or less dry milk.

Consistant eating

I try to have something to eat every 2 to 3 hours during the day. You want to keep them healthy for the most part and try to get all the different varieties of food into your diet. Eating your main meals then a snack in between.

Use Smaller Utensils!

By using, say, a smaller salad fork to eat your dinner, it takes you longer to complete your meal and the food has longer to process. By doing this, I've noticed I've started eating around 1/3 less than I used to. "Iced" tea spoons (If you have them) are also smaller, and good for cereal or icecream

How To Avoid Extra Snacking

How I avoid over snacking - I drink a glass of water before my snack and 1 more after my snack - it not only helps me feel fuller faster, but it helps me drink my 8 glasses of water a day and helps me avoid overeating. emoticon

Find healthy foods you like & keep them on hand

Find healthy foods you love to eat so you don't miss the bad stuff.. I keep snacks in my desk at work and am never tempted to go to the vending machine. Healthy meals (stir-fries or a treat like salad & soup from Panera) help me get back/stay on track, too.

Moderation, Moderation, MODERATION!!

I won't lie, I love sweets. Moderation is key for me!! The old me would have eaten 10 cookies at a time, now I have 1 after dinner maybe 1 or 2 days a week IF I really feel like I want one and I am satisfied. I don't deprive myself. This keeps me from over-indulging.
