If we plan a whole variety of different snacks and store them packed up in the fridge or pantry, we can account for our in-between-meal eating and keep on track with our calories for the day!
i have diet bowls sitting on my counter, one is labeled healthy snacks, one is labeled fruits, one is labeled vegetables, meat, exercise etc. In these bowls i have put strips of paper in them of choices that must be included in order for me to lose weight. This gives me a new choice everyday.
When I first started this, I understood that portion control was a BIG key. So, I turned to Smart Ones and Lean Cuisine. They even have breakfast too. I got my calories under control with these and have lost 15 lbs eating them. They are healthy, quick and easy!

Eating healthy can be a heady thing to start, overwhelming. i started telling myself "healthier." you start in the grocery store with things that may not be the best, but they're better than what you were getting before. before you know it your choices that were small, have grown to be huge changes
For breakfast, stir 1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder & 1/2C milk together & add cereal (& fruit). Yummy and a great high protein way to start your day. Oh, and they make chocolate & strawbery, too! ;)

Sometimes when I'm faced with something tempting and I'm tempted to blow my portion control, I need to remind myself that this is not the last piece of chocolate/lasagne/cheese in the world... I've had my bit, and I *don't* need more. I *will* get more--later!
Good Earth's Sweet and Spicy Tea! It's a roobios-based tea I was nervous and anxious to be around desserts the first week of a new diet, but I'm just TOO much of a social person to cancel plans with friends because of food.
