fresh food is better

I shop 3 -4 times a week now instead of once a week . That way I have the freshest produce and meats and my meals are prepared with optimal products. Using ingredients made from scratch are healthier and tastier. My family has noticed the difference in quality too.

Keep It Realistic!

Watch your calories but still try and consume tasty food you're actually excited for. Limiting yourself too strictly will lead to unhapiness with your diet and/or binge eating.

Ugh..Water

Sometimes I get so sick of drinking water all day long. To keep it interesting, I always carry a box of herbal teas with me. Herbal teas have lots of good ingredients and keep you drinking water. Also, it's great hot AND cold!

Getting 8 Glasses of Water

I carry a 20 oz container full of water all day long. It saves on bottles of water. I have a water softner. I never leave home for more than a couple of hours with out at least two containers.
i also make sure to drink 5-8 oz of water within 30 mins of my main meals. I feel full and eat less....

Incorporating water

For someone who spent decades strung out on diet coke, drinking water didn't come all that naturally. But little by little I've learned ways to incorporate drinking water in my daily routines. And as a bonus, I lost 7 pounds the month I gave up diet coke for good and I've never felt better.

Avoiding unnecessary trips to the fridge

Everytime I think that I am hungry and walk to the fridge. I make myself walk three laps around the kitchen first. Then, if I still feel like I have to eat something I do. However, most of the time I am loving the extra steps that I will avoid eating just to pass the time.

Guiltless sweet treat

To tame my sweet tooth cravings late at night. I eat popsicles. They are usually around 15-20 calories and I can enjoy 2-3 without feeling guilty late at night.
