OK so this is my all time fav. Take a cup of Fat Free vanilla pudding. 4-6 Nilla Wafers. 1 banana.

Place wafers on bottom of bowl. Top with vanilla pudding. warm in microwave for 1-1.5 min. Top with banana and VIOLA!!! What a great dessert when u have a sweet tooth.

For those SNACKERS out there

This is a hard habit to break. Some days are GREAT and others you just want to put something in your mouth.

If you can't manage to get around the craving, keep a bag of popcorn around. Put it in your tracker. But every once in a while grab a handful ..

Tracking food, every bite!

When I track everything I put in my mouth (SparkPeople really makes this easy and doable) I really think twice about my intake. Tracking is really making a difference for me!

Healthier Greek Yogurt

I use a scoop of berry flavored protein powder to flavor plain Greek yogurt. Tastes like the flavored kind without the added sugar & boosts the protein. Yummy!

Extra Fiber

I have noticed that Fiber adds up! But brands like Ronzoni make pasta with extra fiber for those who don't like the whole wheat pasta. Yum!

balanced meals

Adding some protein in every meal including my snacks have helped me reduce up to elimination cravings keeping my blood sugar level stable.The answer hides in body's chemistry and hormonal response that triggers food cravings.

"GAINING NEW PERSPECTIVE"

I use my cell phone to take a picture of my plate, especially if I am eating alone. At times I am truly amazed at the amount of food I have on my plate & immediately divide it in half! At other times I am proud of the proportions and color range of food I have selected.

Graham Cracker rescue

When I need a cookie/sugar fix I substitute a graham cracker instead. I get the whole wheat flour and a sugar taste, without all the calories. A great snack is a little peanut butter on the cracker. Or low-fat ice cream in the middle of 2 crackers is an ice cream sandwich.

Buy a food scale!

Now that I am at a point where the weight is not just falling off - weighing my food and knowing exactly what I'm doing is key! It's also amazing how knowing this actually does make you feel full and not that you are being cheated!
