When I come home from work and have to fix supper, I have found that a small handful of cashews is just enough to calm the hungers until I can get the meal done.
You can do anything when you have the time... but so often there is no time. So PLAN quick snacks and meals. Prepackage portions you make yourself and then freeze or put on the shelf or buy the preportioned packages. The foodtracker can be used ahead of time... not just after eating!
bring carrots or celery anything thats crunchy it tricks you into thinking your eating something bad when your eting something healthy and you can eat alt of it as well.
OK, not truly "spaghetti". But shiritake tofu noodles have a look, texture and taste that are fairly close to pasta noodles -- delicious! And a 4-oz serving is only 20 calories.
When ever I can I only buy whole foods. Organic and I always seek out the local Farmers markets.
Sometimes I get stuck in places or situations where I don't get to eat lunch or something else as planned. I carry a protein bar in my purse all the time. Then if I get tied up I can eat that so that I don't let myself get so hungry that I eat things I shouldn't or stuff myself.
allow yourself a small treat daily or weekly. I never used to be able to have one of something, let alone one small of whatever. But I have found that ONE hershey kiss at bedtime gives me a special treat, i let it melt on my tongue. iLike a fancy hotel sith chocolate on the pillow!
I like to use my Sundays to make meals for the rest of the week. I chop my veggies and put them in plastic storage bowls for my lunches. I cook one thing in the slow cooker to eat on all week. I portion it out for my meals so I never over eat it.
Full Bars really work..just follow the directions on the box!
