Beat Evening Munchies with Pilates

When I looked back over my food and exercise trackers I realized that I have done a really good job staying within my calorie range on days I took pilates in the evening. My gym offers it 7:30-8:30pm twice a week. Takes away the evening munchies & helps me sleep better. Yoga might work, too!

Eating fast food lunches

Lots of fast food companies now have nutrition guides on line. Before leaving the office to get lunch, I pick and choose what I should eat, and then order already knowing how many calories it will be. Removes the guess work and helps me make good choices.

Spicy 'Lemonade'

Spicy Lemonade is based on the 'Master Cleanse' Detox but instead of ONLY drinking this wonderful drink, just add it to your healthy diet.
Add some lemon juice and a dash of cayenne pepper to warm water. The lemon will help detox your body while the pepper will boost metabolism.

Lemon Water

I find adding a packet of "True Lemon" to my water helps it go down much faster! It's pure dried lemon, not a sugary additive, so it's zero calories, just like a real splash of lemon!

Better Fast Food Choices

I bought a fat/carb reference guide to help make better choices if I decided to treat myself to fast food. Just cause you think you are making good choices, you might be surprised by the numbers you are eating, especially the sodium levels in many items.

very low carb lunch idea

My boyfriend and I are on a low carb-high protein lifestyle, and we have a fantastic lunch idea which we do about 3x a week. We go to "Jimmy Johns" sub shop. They will make any of their sandwiches without the bread and wrapped in lettuce instead! It is minimal carbohydrates and healthy.

Dealing with vacations

Maintain your weight instead of trying to lose. Eat brunch, a snack and dinner (instead of 3 meals + snacks). For brunch, have oatmeal or eggs. For a snack, have a yogurt and granola bar. For dinner, stick to chicken or fish and salads. Even if you can't exercise, at least you won't gain!
