Stop "Giving Up" Things

No, you did not "give up" junk food, you made a decision to eliminate unhealthy food from your diet. The difference is subtle, but important.

If you gave something up, it implies that you want it back. For example: "I gave up sweets" has a very different feeling than "Sweets are hindering my weight loss efforts, so I refrain."

You didn't give up smoking, you decided against being ruled by an addiction! You didn't give up McDonalds, you decided to refrain from eating grease laden food!

Add LOTS of Veggies To Your Diet

Having trouble staying under your allotted calories for the day, or feeling hungry when you do? Try adding a pound or two of non-starchy vegetables to your diet.

There are less than 200 calories in 2 pounds of veggies, but you will feel full and get lots of vitamins and nutrients at the same time!
