Have a Laughing Cow, man!

I love Laughing Cow lite cheese & use it to spread on the bread for a sandwich instead of mayo, or over a stick of celery & put pistachio nuts in it for a super snack...then discovered it's great for replacing butter in mashed potatoes! YUM!

An Apple a Day

An apple a day keeps the doctor away, helps my body to work smoothly and helps me shed weight. I like to eat an apple before lunch and dinner to help fill me and add fiber.

Tons of flavor at a fraction of the calories

SALSA. I add it to everything. Eggs, grilled cheese sandwiches, salads, dipping sauce - and so much more. 2 tbsp are only 15 calories, it tastes great - and it's another way to get in some extra veggies for the day!

Loose the Booze

After discussing it with everyone online, it is pretty well agreed that alcohol puts weight on us. IMHO, it ain't the calories of the alcohol what's doin' it, it's the chemical effect. I quit drinking for 3 months late last year and lost 30 lbs. I quit in 2005 and lost some 40 lbs.

Sugar Substitute

LOSE THE SUGAR ADDICTION! For the word "habit" substitute "addiction." When addicted to a bad eating habit, substitute it with a GOOD addiction. When I cut added sugars out of my diet I substituted with FRESH FRUIT at or after each meal. A favorite is a quartered apple with plain cinnamon on it.

Prepare before going out to eat

When I'm planning on going to a restaurant, I will look up nutritional information online and select my meal ahead of time whenever possible. This helps me know if I can eat the whole meal or should bring some leftovers home, as well as whether a dessert or drink splurge is okay.

Hunger at bay

I keep a protein bar in my purse for the days I cannot get back home to eat on time... it curbs my hunger and keeps me OUT of the drive thru!

Spaghetti Squash

Spaghetti squash is great alternative to the normal pasta and potato starch fillers. Plus it will help you expand your vegetable horizons.
