Eat with a fork!

Always eat with a fork when possible. You can't shovel the food in as quickly. And when you're eating things like yogurt, you're unable to scrape every last bite...so you're saving teeny calories here and tehre!

Sleep Is Key

I find that when I'm very tired, I often feel hungry. If I work on getting 8+ hours of sleep, much of the hunger goes away. Sleep is key!

Snacking

Control snacking by taking a "serving" from the bag, box, etc and then put it away. If you have the whole container in front of you, you are more likely to eat more than a serving.

Green tea before a snack

Every time I feel like I want to eat a snack I drink a cup of green tea, no sweetener. It gives me something positive to do, no calories and is healthy. It's a choice I can feel really good about. Then if I still feel like I want a snack I eat a piece of fruit.

Drink Water While Eating To comsume less Calories.

My grandmother who i grew up with used to tell me eat your food 1st then drink. I'm sure this makes a lot of sense and can be scientifically proven. However, I've found that sipping water between bites of food made me full faster and as a result i consumed less calories.

A simple decision

Make a simple decision/CHOICE. Act upon it. Immediately change the "old" emotional thought from I can't to I can!. I had to repeat it a million times, as we think continually within our minds. We can do this!
