Be empowered, not overpowered!

I adapted a Jillian Michaels quote to help me overcome emotional eating and start eating better. The new quote is:

"Nutrition, to me, isn't about calories, fat grams, and carbs; it's about taking my power back."

Now I make empowered food choices. I no longer feel like food overpowers...

My own dressing

I knew I was going to have a salad at KFC with a friend, so I brought my own salad spritzer to use instead of their 280 calorie dressing. My friend noticed & the conversation about my choice allowed me to also Spread the Spark!

Pick the right foods

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.

portion control

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.

Snack of Quaker MiniDelights Chocolatey Mint 90 calories

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.

Feed your Sweet-tooth

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!

Divide your portions

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...
