Check food labels carefully. The less ingredients the better and avoid the ingredients you can't pronounce or have sugar in the first five items. By doing this, I feel better and have lost weight.
I bought sm. plastic containers to bring my own salad dressing with me when I go out to eat. I also put that in a plastic baggie so if the lid comes loose I can save the contents of my purse.
They are good. They are worth the calories for your snack. Teen GD told me bout them. 90 calories and 30 from fat,(3.5 grams) so only carry 1 packet. You would want to eat more as they are tasty.
I always crave something sweet after a meal and usually in the afternoon, but instead of eating a cookie or bowl of ice cream reach for the fruit! Keep your favorite fruit around the house and be sure to cut it (if necessary) as soon as you can so when your sweet-tooth hits have some sweet-fruit!
I have this nasty habit of eating things while i cook to make sure they are cooked properly.... and i end up eating a lootttttt in course of time. The Saviour is a humble chewing gum which keeps me from eating here and there
Try this if u have a similar habit.!!!
With all the healthy eating, I get bound up. The quickest natural way to relieve the situation is one tablespoon of vegetable oil. No taste, few calories and no drugs.
Rice cakes and a cup of diet hot chocolate tide me over until I can make a healthy dinner!
If you're hungry and you want a snack, divide the snack in smaller portions and eat 1 piece, then wait a couple of minutes, eat the next piece etc...
I cut up melons purchased at the grocery store right after getting them home. Each melon (honeydew, cantaloupe, watermelon) goes in its own see thru container. This way I am motivated to eat more fruit before it goes "bad." Also makes it an ideal snack for the kids to help themselves to!
I like to cram in 2-3 servings of veggies with my noodles. I'll cut up carrots, mushrooms, onions, spinach, etc and toss them w/diff types of noodles, gr. chicken and sauce. Look for recipes like Korean Jap Chae, or Lo Mein. Tons of veggies which makes the portion look HUGE, and really filling.
