Snack on fruit, not junk food!

When you get a craving between meals, snack on some fruit instead; not only will you be getting a serving of fruit and feel better but you'll also fight off hunger until later.

Don't deprive yourself of fat

Our body needs it to work with vitamins that are not water soluble. Do use fat like oil in salads or low fat butter on your sandwich. Yes it adds up a lot of calories but also a lot of heart healthy fats. By the way the sandwich with (low fat) butter tastes much juicier. Everything in moderation!

Presentation Improves Everything !

For the munchies (and they hit all of us) I put together a plate of fresh veggies and make it look as good as if it was for company. It makes me feel special, and it seems more satisfying! Presentation is everything !!

morning coffee half & half secret...

So I can't seem to enjoy my morning coffee without using creamo - but I make sure to add the creamo AFTER i've poured the coffee. If I prep my cup with creamo & sugar first, I use more creamo. If I pour my cup of coffee first and then add the creamo - i use about 1/2 as much!!

Ice! Ice! Baby!


Hot day huh bud? Oh and starting to feel hungry too... Don't sweat, get some ice cubes Fill a cup with them and there you go. It cools you off while your brain thinks your eating. It's a good healthy way to get rid of the munches.

**It's better to use crushed ice

KEEP IT OUT

I know my food weaknesses, and since I KNOW I can't resist them, I simply don't buy them. Pizza, cookies, pretty much anything processed and sweet. I don't buy them because I know I'll eat them if they're in the house.

Getting all your water in

Trying to remember to drink 64+ oz of water a day was too much for me to count. So now, in the morning, I pack 2-3 bottles of 24 oz Arrowhead for work. I don't have to count each cup but know when I finish all 3 bottles, I have had the correct amount.
