I used to overeat. And now out of the clear blue sky my appetite just isn't like it was. Why? Well doing exercises and lots and lots of walking made it happen.

Quite a few years ago, I discovered that substituting low fat plain yogurt for sour cream was a good way to have lower calories, but with good flavor and also to have the probiotics of the yogurt.
When I'm cooking dinner on sunday for the family, I also take the time to make a large pot of tofu veggie spiced rice for my lunches for the week. SO I end up with a week's worth of good for me and tasty food out having to deal with it in the mornings.
