So the past 2 weeks I've been doing that, when I wanted a comfort food having oatmeal with some cinnamon and raisins in it. or a little butter, which i don't usually add. It does work, and it has solv...

I Ask myself 2 questions before eating

Before I choose food, I ask myself if my stomach is truly hungry or is it just my mouth that is hungry. If stomach, eat a meal. If it's just my mouth feeling munchy, I snack on fresh veggies or almonds, or just chew gum. Find myself noticing my mouth gets hungry more than stomach. Listen to your bod...

Great Idea

Every time you eat think about how you are feeding you muscles. If your muscles don't want a food then neither does the rest of your body, SO DON'T EAT IT!

Feel like binge eating?

Do a quick, moderately high intensity 5-15 minute exercise regimen. You won't feel like eating afterwards while your heart rate is pumping. Plus you may feel too elated to want to binge!

Eat as clean as you can.

Choosing what nature gives us rather than what comes from a box or bag will not only guarantee a healthier body, mind and spirit, it will help your body shed unwanted pounds. I have lost 12 pounds in 2 weeks by eating as "clean" as I can and exercising regularly!

Drink water after a meal..

A lot of people tell you to drink water before a meal to fill up and you won't eat as much. But, that does not help me at all. I like food and I love cooking, and I think food is meant to be enjoyed. What helps me is when I plate my food with appropriate portions, eat what I have on my plate then dr...
