Water, Water, Water!

I use to be a big soda drinker (diet soda) and even diet soda is bad for you. When I would drink it, I'd crave sweets all the time. Since stopping it, I drink water. I don't like water, but drinking it non stop every day has really helped me to enjoy it. Sometimes, I switch it up and put a lime in it & put it in the fridge overnight. In the morning it taste great! I also add a strawberry or lime to it and take it with me. It has really helped me to focus on drinking water and I've lost weight too

Get Most food for your calories

Make sure you don't settle for quick and easy food that is high in calories, and won't fill you up.
Pick food that is high in protein and volume

Eat a medley of 6 fruits pieces with lunch & 6 veggie pieces with dinner.

Eat a medley of 6 fruits pieces with lunch & 6 veggie pieces with dinner. Take 6 fruits or vegetables and cut them into about 1 ounce portions. This makes about a cup.

You won't get sick of the taste because it's only 1 small piece per day of each kind. Plus you can create 2 or 3 medleys.

I used to buy a whole pound bag of broccoli & cauliflower, then I would get sick of it and wouldn't want any more veggies for awhile.

This will help to keep you full and to eat healthier.

Give up caffeine

Giving up caffeine (cola) has really helped me to control my sugar cravings and to cut down on snacking. Now I drink water and green tea instead, my skin is better too!

Eating Program

My eating program is NOT a diet. This time around I've decided to track nutrition on the SparkPeople nutrition tracker. I allow myself about 2000 calories a day, but try to stay with the recommended fat/protein/carbohydrate percentages. I lose a little more slowly than on a lower calorie program, but I'm training myself to eat "normally" forever. emoticon emoticon

Eat a good breakfast

When I start the day with a good breakfast including protein. I usually have eggs or a protein shake. It starts my day off and I don't seem to crave for junk food. emoticon

Easy Juicing recipe

Using a regular blender put in frozen fruits and veggies, which are just as nutritious as fresh and not as expensive. Chop up some fresh kale, spinach and parsley. Add a natural protein such as 2 tbs peanut or almond butter. Add 1 tbs hemp seed. Just as good as expensive protein powder. Use more greens than fruit. I add unsweetened almond milk, or water or green tea.

Snack before bedtime

I really need a snack before I sleep because I can't sleep if I'm hungry. I usually eat dinner quite early. I found that I can eat a very small snack if I drink two glasses of water first. It helps me eat less and feel fuller. Also the water serves as a natural alarm clock, since I will always have to use the bathroom before I have to get up. emoticon

OMAT - One Month At A Time

In my OMAT team, we pick one reasonable and reachable goal for each month and work on that small goal for a whole month. By the time the month is done, you've now broken an old habit and created a new one! I've been doing this since September 2013 and it's the one thing that helped me finally budge the scale!

Drink a glass of water first.

When you're feeling hungry and are fighting the urge to snack, go drink a glass of water. Wait 10-20 minutes, and if you're still hungry, go eat a healthy snack. If the water filled you up, you just saved yourself some calories.
