Plan your meals & snacks the night before and log them into the Nutrition Tracker ahead of time. This way, you have a clear idea of what to eat the next day, and you can make substitutions as needed.
Label Your Food
Divide your food into individual servings and label each one with the day of the week that you plan to eat it. This really helps with portion control!
Print it out!
Print out your daily Nutrition Report and keep it in a binder. For some reason, it makes it seem more official!
Allow yourself to eat mindlessly or when you're not hungry as long as you are staying within your daily calorie range! Maybe your brain just needs a break from thinking about food!
You deserve it!
For every week that you stay on track, treat yourself to something (non-food related). You deserve it!
Vitamin & D
Take a multivitamin and Vitamin D supplement every day.
Commit to 15 Minutes
If you don't feel like exercising, commit to only 15 minutes. Usually, you will feel so good after 15 minutes that you want to keep going!
Think all fast food is bad? Think again. Chick-Fil-A's Chargrilled Chicken Garden Salad has only 180 calories and is delicious!
Eat Greek yogurt with your breakfast. It's packed with protein and will keep you feeling full & satisfied!
