write down everything

I made a chart to write everything I eat on it. I have the time of day , item, calories and carbs. I try to stay at 1600 calories a day. I am more aware of what I eat and avoid cheating because I don't want to write it on my chart. I reward myself with lettuce salads when I get craving.

Don't diet

Diets don't work. Lifestyle changes and well-balanced eating to feed the body's needs is the only sustainable way to go!

As I am disabled and can't walk far, I now go swimming every day. I workout in the water- physiotherapy and hydrotherapy exercises. I do this for an hour alternating from my exercises and swimming. emoticon emoticon

Utensils and Plates

Sounds silly, I know, but I really do use smaller plates and utensils to eat. Slows me down..and makes it look like I'm getting bigger bites and more food! Hubby always uses a dinner plate, I use a luncheon sized plates. I use salad forks and small teaspoons for everything.

Water, Walking and Low Carbs before lunch

Walking 45 minutes a day, drinking between 2 to 2.5 litres of water day. Ensure that you get your carbs from fruit mostly but if you must eat other carbs do so strictly before lunch and never after lunch time.

Munch an apple just before dinner

I eat an apple while preparing dinner. It helps to fill me up a bit so I'm not so hungry when we sit down to eat. High fiber and high water content are filling!

Avoid saggy skin

Keep weight loss to a moderate 2-3 lbs per week to avoid developing the dreaded excess skin and "flesh flags" that result from too rapid and dramatic a drop in weight.

green tea craving killer

I learned this trick from a tea book. When you are craving something sweet add a a couple of chocolate chips or a tiny piece of caramel in a cup of tea. This can help curb the cravings. Plus you get the health benefits of green tea, if you are not a green tea fan you can mix it with a fruit tea.
