ever since i started at sparkpeople, i made the decision to enjoy more fruits and vegetables. i now enjoy a variety of fruits and vegetables every day. they help me to feel full while i get to enjoy a variety of tasty food!
I was feeling lethargic today and remembered that a few of the kids at school I work had the gastro bug and sure enough, went to the doctor and he told me to eat nothing else but plain rice and so I made some and that is all I am having for dinner. It really is working.
Because I'm a grab it and eat it kind of person, I like to keep my fridge stocked with fruit and veggies. Before I put the veggies in I wash, cut and place them on a tray. This very a very handy way of grabbing on the go and avoiding the cookies!
Sweet, crunchy snacks really get to me, so I log in everything I've eaten all day long, and IF I have enough calories left over, I'll let myself choose whether to eat it (or not). What I now find myself doing, is finding healthier substitutes.
