Use a smaller plate

To trick myself into the smaller portions, I used a salad plate.

The small plate doesn't look so empty. I was able to portion my foods to the right portion. The smaller plate worked in the way that the plate did not look so empty.

Shopping With a List

We are all tempted while shopping. Now I only shop with a well thought out list. At the store if it is NOT on the list I can't buy it. I'm less likely to write, "ice cream, cookies or candy" on the list now. By only shopping that way I buy only good foods and I save money too!

Handy Containers for Portion Control

I keep a small container with the foods that I eat most often. For example I have a tiny Tupperware container that is about 1/4 cup that I keep in my granola. No more guessing! Just scoop and add to my berries & breakfast is ready! I have one in my bag of almonds, as well.

Jazz Up Your Smoothie

Try adding a few baby spinach leaves, (you don't even taste it) and a teaspoon or 2 of Flax seed to your smoothie. It's a easy and delicious way to add nutrition and fiber to your daily requirements.

Drinking Water

To get my much needed water in everyday I use my prettiest glass. Instead of putting water into something plastic, I choose to use a pretty glass, mine holds 16oz plus ice and has colorful dots on it. That glass makes me feel like my water is a special drink rather than something boring!

Stop eating too much!

When I realize I have reached my full limit, but there is still yummy food on my plate (and I normally would keep eating until it was all gone) I reach for a condiment on the table (like salsa, pepper, be creative!) and cover the rest of my food with it so it forces me to not go back and munch!

Early Eating!

Before, I used to work out like crazy and eat barely anything while I did not lose very much. Little did I know, I was eating way too late. Now, even on days when there is no time to exercise or eat that well, I make sure to eat earlier than 8pm. The earlier the better. Try it and you will lose!

Don't open the Cupboard or Refrigerator

Don't open the Cupboard or Refrigerator until you've decided what you want. i.e. plan your snack before you look at the selections.
Then, your snack won't become a graze! emoticon

My Lunch After a BIG workout

You know after a BIG workout at the gym you get home and fell like you can eat a horse (to restore your body's energy.) Anway I always make myself a big salad for lunch, w/carrots, lettuce, cucumbers, onions, peppers, tomatos, protein and maybe cheese. I also have fruit after.
