Why am I eating that?

If I start to feel like I am getting in a snacking mood, I ask myself, "Why do I want something to eat right now?" I heard this somewhere, and I wish I credit the proper person for it but, I have used it ever since. "If hunger isn't the problem, then food isn't the solution!"

Green Tea

I gave up coffee and only drink green tea in the morning and then switch to water after two cups. If I get hungry after dinner, I have a cup of green tea. Very comforting and great antioxidants! emoticon

Dark Chocolate Lifestyle Change not Diet

Hershey Dark Chocolat Kisses are 25 calories. If you suck on them instead of chewing they last a long time. Keep them in a jar you have to open so you know you are snacking, and are not on autopilot. Some times denying makes it too much like like a diet and les like a new healthy lifestyle.

Getting my daily fruits in

I make fruit smoothies for breakfast a lot. An orange, banana and a couple of handfuls of strawberries and you've knocked out a bunch of fruits for the day. Add yogurt and you've just added a great little a protein boost!

Spaghetti Substitute

I am on a low carb diet. I found Dreamfield Spaghetti. This spaghetti tastes great and does not raise your blood sugar levels like regular pasta. When I am tired of eating spaghetti sqash and just need pasta, this is a good choice for me. If your stores don't have it, order from the net.

You can save alot of calories and enjoy all your favorite pasta dish by just replacing the pasta with vegetables. Try replacing your pasta with zucchini, cauliflower or broccoli. It taste great and all the restaurant like Olive Garden, Macaroni Grill will be happy to replace the pasta for veggies.

Everything in moderation

I have found that if I don't deny myself the things I want , I tend not to over eat. I have changed a lot of things to healthier versions of what they used to be to be able to stay within 1200 calories a day. Sugar free chocolate being a biggie.

Saver Bites

When you go out to dinner, and you are having a hard time not eating all the appetizers, take a favorite protein bar and cut it up into small bites and place in a baggy. These can be used for any emergency hunger attacks. emoticon

Plan Ahead

If I know we are going out to dinner with family, I make it a point to narrow down which restaurants we might go to and check out their menu/nutrition info on the website before hand. I also bring healthy snacks and water along when we are out and about on weekends

CRACKING DOWN ON CRAVINGS

If you get a craving for salty foods and the crunch aspect, have some carrots and celery on hand and a light salad dressing. Dip the veggies in the dressing.
Hunkering for sweets? Try an apple with cheese, or yogurt with fresh fruit of your choice. Works wonders!
