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.
Making sure you consume on a daily basis the appropriate amount of healthy foods and calories, including fresh fruits and vegetables, lean protein will give your body the nutrients it needs to be able to maintain a healthy weight and stay healthy .
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!!
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.
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.
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!!!
When I know that it is time to do some shopping, I always make a list of foods that I enjoy and that are good for me too. Making a list and sticking to it means that I won't be tempted to buy items that I don't need or want because I have put so much time into my food research and lifestyle changes
brush your teeth right after dinner, you'll be less likely to snack with freshly brushed teeth!
Whatever type of sandwich you have, cut it up into 4 peices & do not eat anything else with it, except water.
I have a hard time with not eating chips or treats at night. I find if I brush my teeth right after dinner, that curbs me from eating again before bed. Going to bed early works well too, if I am feeling weak and having strong cravings.
