Measure entire dinner on plate and sit down to eat

I measure the portions of the carb, protein, veggies and place them on my plate and sit down at the table to eat slowly and savor it - I do not go back to serve more. This works for planned meals as well as on days when I was too busy to plan, I can still stay within limits and eat healthy.

Cup of milk first thing in the morning

I wake up @ 6:30 am but get around to eating breakfast only by 8:30 am after the kids have gone to school. But my nutritionist said it is not good to give a long gap between wake up time and breakfast and so she suggested I drink a cup of milk.

Remove sugar lumps from instant oatmeal

When I empty the flavored Quaker Instant oatmeal into a bowl, I see the sugar in lumps - I gently pick out the lumps and throw them. This way I reduce the sugar content in the oatmeal by 80% but it still tastes good and mildly sweet.

Pack your gym bag the night before

Morning time is always rush hour at home and so I always pack my gym bag the night before and keep it in the car too lest I forget! This way I am ready for exercise emoticon

Break your crackers/chips into half

My favorite baked crackers are 15 pieces per serving. I take just 7 pieces, break each into half and then dip it in salsa or hummus! I feel like I ate a lot even though I ate only half the serving emoticon
