In order to stop buying snacks from the vending machine at work I started carrying only large bills I would hide the ones and change in my car before work. At home the ones and change went into a piggy bank.
I eat an early breakfast so I carry a 100 cal snack that has some fat and protein for late morning. I can have it where ever it's convenient with a 1/2 cup coffee and a full glass of water. That way I can eat a late lunch and not be starving before supper.
I use chopsticks to make myself eat slower. I put them down in between bites so it adds a little more time.
To help slow down your eating and allow your body to feel full on less food put down your fork between bites of food. By eating more slowly you allow your brain the time to receive the full signal from the stomach.
When you're craving something that you know isn't on your healthful eating plan, don't deny yourself! It's been proven that just three normal bites of what you are craving can satisfy your craving. You don't have to eat the whole candy bar, piece of pie, cake or dessert.-same goes for any food.
Eating real foods: beef, chicken, fish, eggs, fruits, vegetables - real whole food - will take you where you need to go. And you'll be happier than if you'd eaten a piece of "healthy" chocolate cake or WW franken-food brownie.
replace animal fats with veggies, as well as healthy proteins like beans and nuts have helped me lose addtional weight when I reach a plateau from which I couldn't move downward.
On days when you are having trouble keeping up with drinking water, eat a strong mint (or brush your teeth!) Water always tastes better when minty fresh breath.
You can eat anything you want and as much as you want if you change what you want! I attribute my success to focusing on transformative change, not dieting. It is all about taking great care of yourself, aligning your head and your heart, and believing you can change.
