DIETERS & DIABETICS EAT FEWER CARBS ~ YOU WILL LOSE WATER WEIGHT

Not enough Fiber in your diet and not enough water can add up to 6lbs in your colon. Eat Oatmeal, citrus fruits, pears and beans, Remember most weight fluctuations are due to shifts in body water. Dehydration cuases headaches, cotton mouth, aches and pains. Eat fewer carbs and you will lose the water weight. Avoid salty foods, canned soup and frozen meals and drink no calorie liquids.

Don't consider fasting because of you will lose weight, but you'll gain it all back once you start eating.

Eat Consistently So you don't binge

Eat consistently throughout the day to reassure your body that you are not starving. Even by eating limited calories you can avoid the feeling of starvation that derails so many diets. A drop in blood sugar occurs when you dont eat for hours on end which can leave you shaky and hungry. Eat a sm. Apple, 20 grapes, 30 cherries, a sm bowl of oatmeal, a handful of cheerios, 2 crackers with tuna as your snacks and enjoy breakfast lunch and dinner.

Cleaning Hard To Scrub Pans

I have found that if you place a dryer sheet in the pan you are soaking, the majority of the mess is loosened and soaked off by the time you go back to clean. Making it easier to clean the pan.

Diabetic? You should take extra precautions when driving.

Check your blood glucose before you go out and at least every 4 hours after.
Take you blood glucose testing supplies with you, along with a fast-acting sugar source in case you go low.
While you are driving if you feel that you have low blood glucose, stop the car, treat the low and wait 45 - 60 minutes before driving again.

Tracking makes all the difference

I track what I eat before I eat it. I track my exercise after I do it. It keeps me honest.

Yes, Potato Chips can be frozen and more

Bananas... lay them on a plastic cutting board, slice & freeze. Tastes like ice cream. After they are frozen I put them in plastic bags. They make great frozen snacks. I wash and chop celery and freeze it. It then is ready to use. You can do this with onions & green peppers too. Cream cheese, mozerella & Feta cheese freezes well. Freeze parsley, chives and basil. Potato chips and saltines freeze fine and flour does too. Grapes, yogurt, extra pancakes and french toast, flaxseeds, nuts,
