Hold out

I DO NOT reccommend that you starve your self,but what's worked for me is when I get that first hunger pain I'll eat somthing small & healthy to trick my stomach into thinking I just feasted in a few hours more I'm hungry again & I eat a regular meal,by regular meal I mean half of what I used to

When you eat a forbidden food, in my case cookies, make sure you log it.

Chocolate Cravings

when I get that sudden crave for chocolate I grab a small handfull of semi-sweet chocolate chips, instead of reaching for the chocolate ice cream, chocolate cake, brownies or other high calorie chocolate fix. 1 oz (about 60 chips) has just 132 calories.

I'll Have a Slice of Birthday Cake AT THE RESTAURANT!

I LOVE to BAKE! The problem IS I LOVE to EAT WHAT I BAKE! So, now instead of baking a birthday cake or some other sweet that will last a week in the house,I celebrate the day by eating OUT and having the slice of cake,pie or sweet treat at a restaurant! That way I have my cake "SLICE" and eat it too

Fruit can satisfy your sweet tooth!

While my self control seems to go out of the window and I feel I can't resist eating some candy, I have some fruit instead. It's hearty, satisfying, low in calories and fat, rich in fiber and usually my candy cravings go away after consuming fruit.

Balancing Act

I've finally found out that I need balance in my life to stay on the healthy track. I can have chocolate, I can have wine... I can skip a day of exercise... I just cannot let it continue indefinitely!

add protein

when having fruit, add some protein (like Greek yogurt) for a satisfying snack. You get protein and calcium to boot!

The Joy Of Frozen Grapes

We all need fruit and veggies and freezing grapes is one way of making them last for weeks. I buy a bunch and pull them off the stem, wash them, but them in baggies and freeze them. I eat them frozen in my cottage cheese, salads or just for snacks. They are best when still slushy.

Eat soup!

I like to eat a light soup that has between 60-100 calories per serving FIRST. I'm always in a hurry (& starving) when I get to the office after class at lunchtime & its REALLY tempting to shove everything in the kitchen into my mouth! Fill up on soup then decide how hungry you really are!
