no secret really but...

count calories on here in the food tracker, it wakes you up big time as to what you're eating. I was easily eating 2500 or more, and adding in drinks is why I am where I am today. Keep tracking!!! Every taste, drink etc.

Find FRESH Fruit & Vegetables

The entire spring, summer, and fall season I peruse farmer's markets to get the absolutely freshest fruit and vegetables. I even go pick my own strawberries!

Easy Black Beans and Rice

I tried a new quick meal tonight for dinner. I reheated 1/2 c. cooked brown rice with 1/2 c. rinsed and well drained canned black beans. When it was hot I topped it with 2 tablespoons of medium hot salsa, and it made a tasty meal with some roasted asparagus spears and a tossed salad.

Time In. Time Out - breaking the missing people EE cycle

30 minute shows actually help me SLOW DOWN. Time meal to begin & end with show.
Eating alone & in silence = amplifies the aloneness.

I eat faster to be through and out of the silence. Emptiness, missing people cycle that sends me to Emotional Eating.

Tempeh, it tastes like Chicken!

Pick up a block of Tempeh, a soy-based meat substitute. Cut it into small chunks and steam it for 5-8 minutes. You can chill it and add to "Chicken Salad" or any type of chicken casserole. No animal products, no cholesterol, low fat.

Breakfast Cereal

Eating breakfast helps me to eat healther during the day. If I don't eat breakfast I want to snack on unhealthy foods, such as chips.

Water

I, too find it hard to get in all my water. To help track it, I put 4 rubber bands around my 16 oz. bottle of water. Every time I finish a bottle, I refill it and take off one rubber band. When I have removed all the rubber bands, I've consumed all 8 cups of water I need each day.

Prepare for Eating Out

If you know you're going to be eating out, download the nutritional info from the restaurant's website the day before. Then make 1-2 "safe" choices, or take the info with you. If you choose restaurants at the last minute, keep a file folder with the nutrition info pdf's in your car.
