i eat a variety of healthy,tasty foods.i enjoy foods such as mangoes, bananas, chickpeas, other fresh fruits and vegetables. i do eat some meat. this helps me to stay on track and to keep the weight i lost off.
I plan my menus for the week, shop only from my list, and cook all of my healthy meals on the weekends so my DH and I have healthy lunches and dinners ready when we are during the week. I add recipes to my nutrition tracker and track my food every day so I stay within my limits.
I used Xtra sugarless gum to help me overcome my chocolate addiction.
I crave something sweet after dinner and to avoid the extra calories I drink Good Earth Tea. It is naturally sweet so it satisfies my craving with 0 calories. It has become my "favorite" dessert. And they sell it at Costco in packs.
I found a substitute for the milk shake habit that I was often heading to the deli for--applesauce. I keep a jar in the refrig now, and I put some into a glass and then drink it through a thick straw. The texture is the same, and I'm comfortable with it.....less calories for sure.
A great tip I follow is to never eat any meals infront of the tv. If you are concentrating on the tube you miss the classic signs of being full. More people over eat while infront of the television rather then at the dinner table. Proven fact
The more real food I eat the less I want that comes in a box or carton or can, and the better I feel! Real food comes from trees and chickens, the ocean and rivers, from vines and shrubs and other plants. And the less processed the better.
eat veggie soup add broccoli and leafy greens to it and there is 3 veggie servings in one, add a side of berries (4) Have an apple with breakfast (5) Try quinoa and shelled edamame with spinach or turnip greens all mixed together (7)
Cut up your brown bananas and freeze them for smoothies. Blended with frozen berries and a little soy milk, they make soy shakes!
