Since I've been eating healthy, I am always still hungry in the evening after dinner. I like to snack on air-popped popcorn. I usually have it sweet with just a touch of honey, maple syrup or molasses.
I find weighing in once each week gives me a good look at my progress (good or bad) and helps me stay on track. If I really am putting in the needed work, I will see that reflected on the scale most weeks.
Having a workout partner will be a huge help to you. It will keep you accountable and help ensure that you do work out each day. Also, having a buddy helps make your workout more fun.
Instead of buying processed foods, learn how to make the things you like at home. It's usually cheaper and healthier! This week, find one item that you often buy and learn how to make it at home.
Nearly each day, I make a veggie platter to snack on with a healthy dip. I use celery, carrots, cucumber, mushrooms, possibly broccoli or cauliflower as well.
Homemade soup is a great way to have a full meal that is low in calories. I typically use beans, lentils or barley, along with a bunch of veggies, some seasonings, and healthy bullion or stock. Have a salad with it to have an awesome nutrient packed meal! Also, soup is cheap, easy (chop your veggies and stir) and a batch can last a few days.
