Candy

I stay out of the candy aisle and get fresh or frozen fruits for when I have a craving for something sweet

Secrets of Success

I pay more attention to nutrition information and stay away from things that are high calorie. I have decreased (not stopped) the amount of soda I drink. Instead of 8 Dr. Peppers I have cut this to 4 and am drinking more water. emoticon

Waste

I was always taught to clean my plate so I wouldn't waste food. Then one day my husband asked me why it was less wasteful to use my body as a garbage can for food I didn't want or need. I have never, ever forgotten that. I can leave food I don't need on the plate now. I won't use my body as a garbage can.

Bottled Lemon Juice

I've started keeping a bottle of lemon juice in my refrigerator and another in the fridge at work. I drink way more water that way! It's also great to have around so that I can cut up fruits and keep them from oxidizing.

Vary Your Caloric Intake

Jillian Michaels said on the Biggest Loser to vary your caloric intake: eat on the low end for two days, eat in the middle range for three days, eat on the high end (even going a little over) on two days. This keeps your body guessing. I did this all last week and lost 3.5 lbs!

Think of your Calories as a Budget

The best thing I was ever told was to think of my calories as a budget. Know how many you can have each day and before you eat something ask yourself if you can afford it. If it's worth the amount you have to spend and you have the calories eat it if not rethink it.

low-carb diet

We have greatly reduced (although certainly not eliminated) our carb intake. This has really added to the speed with which I've lost weight (although the loss is still reasonable). I am not overly hungry but rarely top out the calorie recommendations from Sparks

More fruit in the day

I pack my fruit & cheese snack the night before, ready to grab & go the next morning.

I pack an apple & banana or grapes and apple, whatever. But the point is I grab 2 fruit items and they are what I have as my morning snack & afternoon snack. I don't miss daily fruit servings that way! :)
