I have found that if I want something I know I really don't need, I just have one bite. I am usually happy with one. Especially if it is chocolate. Takes care of craving, and I feel good about just one.
Airports = notorious for boredom eating. It's best to just say no to those pricey and caloric foods. Now I go to the airport shop to buy a magazine for the plane. It's my reward for not giving in to temptation AND it is cheaper than the 900 calorie snack I don't need. Bonus: pick a fitness mag!
Went to Sam's Club with my nephew, Fancybird24 last week. We double dog dared each other to try the soy milk that the Demo Lady offered. It was awesome! I have lactose problems anyways, so this was an even better deal for me. It was fantastic with my cereal!
Drink a glass of water with every meal and with any medication you must take. It helps get in the water!
If you know you're going to a family get together and want to maintain your healthy diet, bring a healthy side dish along. Not only will you be helping the party planner by bringing extra food, but some family members may ask for a taste of what you brought and ask for the recipe.
Stress eating is one of my problems. I have discovered that if I have some air popped popcorn with just a little popcorn seasoning it lets me chew and crunch but does not add a lot of calories. And fiber is very good for me!
I keep a glass of water by my bed at all times. I often wake up and I feel very thristy, so by keeping the glass by my bed its in quick reach....it also helps for waking up in the middle of the night I'm not fumbling around in the kicthen for a glass of water.
I love chocolate but I find myself eating less than stellar goodies and wasting calories. Instead I eat only the chocolate desserts and candy I really love while ignoring the rest of it. I've started using this for all my food and my enjoyment of food is higher while my calorie count is lower.
