Balance out your snacks

Sometimes I just can't help giving into a carb or sweet craving. However, when I do have it I always try to also eat a protein along with it. I eat my dark chocolate square, and then a handful of almonds. I want chips, but I'll grab a couple of slices of lunchmeat to go with it!

Good Way To Add Fruits

I just love to add fruit to a salad and it is a good way to eat your required fruits and vegetables. Apples, oranges and grapes are my favorites to add to a plain lettuce and tomato salad.

How to not eat ice cream in an ice cream shop

If the gang - your kids, friends, etc. - decide they all want to go out for ice cream, order coffee or a diet drink. Coffee with cream and sugar - while still caloric - is a heck of a lot better than ice cream, and you can sip it slowly. Or, get a cold diet soda and sip slowly.

Got Water?

I put a 64 oz pitcher in the fridge everyday. That way it's always cold and I know exactly how much I'm drinking and how much I need to drink.

Filling Breakfast

I have been experimenting with different Breakfasts for a while and found this one keeps me full till Lunch, its best if you prepare the night before, mix 30 grams of oats with 100g of low fat yogurt, you end up with a lovely thick and creamy "porridge" you can add chopped fruit too, scrumptious.

Pay attention to your food

I use a lunch plate, not a dinner plate. I also eat with a salad fork. use your non- donimant hand to eat with. Do not watch TV or use computer when eating. You owe it to your self to enjoy and savor every bite of food. You will be less tempted to want seconds.
