Desk Drawer Almonds

I like to keep a plastic bag of almonds in my desk at work. They don't go bad, so there's always a healthy option for when I get hungry. I just have to make sure only to eat 8 per day. But that is enough to fill you up when your tummy starts grumbling mid-afternoon!

Carb Smart

Cutting down on carbs is a sure way to lose weight. I have done the Atkins diet since March 12th and I've lost 10 pounds. Now I know for some, it may just take cutting down on sweets, breads and sodas to see results. Either way, I know that lowering carbs will definitely work. emoticon

schedule your feedings ;)

When I first started tracking, I paid very close attention to WHEN I would want to eat, in addition to what I was eating. This information helps now - I try to pre-plan WHEN I am going to want food - that helps give a clue as to whether or not I'm really hungry or eating for another reason.

Smaller plate

Use a desert plate as your main meal plate. Don't pile it high, just watch your portions.

Sports Bottles

I have found it extremely useful to always have my sports water bottle around. Mine is 32 oz so I track my water by how many I drink. I know I have to drink 2 of these to get my water intake in for the day. I take them everywhere and it really helps on the weekends when I'm in the car a lot more.

Make Mindless Eating Work for Me!

Each morning, I pack my bag full of healthy choices. I include bfast,lunch, 3 fruits, 1 yogurt, something crunchy to satisfy cravings (like veggies or granola bar) water and an emergency meal bar. I eat at certain times in the day and when I am hungry for something else, I go to my bag ONLY.

Every lick, taste, snack needs to be recorded to stay accountable for what I eat.

Cherry Tomatoes - 100 Calorie Snack Pack!

I have found those nifty little pint size boxes of cherry tomatoes available in the produce aisle to be the ideal 100 calorie snack-pack. No preservatives, filling, and good for you! Much better than a not-so-satifying 100 calorie pack of cookies, IMHO...

Don't over kill exercise.

Rome wasn't built in a day. Neither are you. Exercise helps your body feel good and it tones your body. Rely on loosing weight with a combination of exercise and the proper control of the right foods.
