Getting more dark leafy greens

Instead of a cocktail, I make a green smoothie as soon as I get home. It staves off that end of the day hunger so I don't snack while fixing dinner and gives me two servings of fruits&vegetables. An added bonus - all that spinach has vastly improved my skin.

Trigger Foods

I don't keep trigger foods in my house. I only get them when I eat out - things like ice cream and macaroni and cheese are saved for when I go out to eat and my portions are a bit more controlled.

fruit after main course makes me feel fuller

I find that if I eat an apple, pear, clementine or some kind of small fruit with my dinner that I feel much fuller, so smaller portions are not a big deal.

Eat Naked, But Keep Your Clothes On!

Try foods in their naked state, without butter, sauces and salt. You will often be surprised at how good food tastes all by itself. You'll save on unnecessary fat and sodium.

Planning Ahead

Taking a few moments every evening to think about and plan my food intake for the next day helps to keep me on track. If I make decisions in the moment, I am much more likely to make poor decisions.

planning ahead

I am on the road for my job every day...I spend a night or two away from home and eating in restaurants...so my best secret is portioning food out into ziplock bags and packing my snacks and meals...that way I always have healthy snacks with me!!

All those great fruits

I love putting a tub of yogurt with a half cup of blueberries, one banana and a small container of fruit of choice in blender and enjoying knowing I am eating heathy. (Can freeze) tastes like you are cheating.

"Gotta Have a Treat"

I like to eat a low-cal, fat-free cup of flavored yogurt when I just "have" to have a little something. I sprinkle a 1/2 Tablespoon of mini chocolate chips and mix them in for a nibble of dessert. It's particularly good with coconut yogurt! Yum.

Dinnertime Don't

After fighting my husband's advice to not eat after the gym, I finally gave in and tried it. Boy was he right! I've been making sure I get a small meal in before I leave work and head to the gym and stopped eating when I get home. I've dropped those last 5 pounds!!!
