Yes you can have Ice Cream!

Invest in some kids cones - they are TINY only about 5 calories per cone. You can only fit about 1 -2 tbls of ice cream, which is about 1/4 of a normal serving. You can have two of these "cones" be completely satisfied and have had under 200 calories! Depending on your ice cream - under 100!

Use The Spark Scale!

I love my Spark Scale for weighing foods. Since one of my big problems is portion control, the scale helps me regulate the amount I eat. It is my favorite Spark Item.

Zero calorie "cocktail"

When I feel like I want to sip on a cool summer cocktail but I don't want the calories and alcohol, I mix a crystal light packet with club soda. It sparkles, is fun to drink, and feels like a summer beverage without all of the calories.

Replace Sour Cream with Greek Yogurt

I love eating mexican food and it always taste better with sour cream, but now I use greek yogurt for a fat free high protein, good for you, flavor.

I just use the plain.

It is good on eggs, burritos, with veggies. I am trying it on all sorts of things

Tea Instead of Coffee

Drink green teat instead of coffee in the morning. Not only does it have 1/4 of the caffeine, it has tons of healthy benefits.

Work into it by drinking one cup of each and decrease the amount of coffee each day until you are only drinking tea.

Eat Raw Fruits and Vegetables

Eat at least 50% of your daily intake as raw fruits and vegetables. It has been the best weight loss secret I have learned, although a friend says 75% would be better. I have consistently lost weight doing this. It keeps me feeling energized and my digestive system clean and moving.
