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!

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.

Brush Your Teeth

As soon as you hit your calorie limit brush your teeth! Something about having a clean mouth tells your brain that is it for the day. It has saved me many times.

Keeping myself busy

When I get bored I tend to eat so I started making what I call an "inspirational folder". I have covered the outside with phrases from magazines that keep me going and motivated. By doing this it keeps my mind off of snacking, and makes me feel good about bettering myself

The scale

Hey everyone, I'm a newbie.

I've decided to keep my scale in the kitchen. Then, when I'm REALLY tempted, I'll just step on the scale and hopefully be inspired to keep going. emoticon
