Belvita breakfast biscuits are really tasty and they're very balanced nutritionally. I fnd that if I eat a package of them and a glass of milk, I'm full until lunch. It's a great grab and go breakfast for when you're running late and otherwise wouldn't be able to eat. TIP: there are 3 flavors, but the blueberry ones are the best--they taste like a crunchy blueberry muffin!
I know it's tediouis, but log every single bite you eat on the nutrition tracker. You'd be surprised how much those bites add up. I started doing this and found out I was regularly consuming about 500 more calories per day than I thought! Even if it's one cracker, two chips, one taste of cookie dough..log everything!!
When I track my food after meals, I always find that I ate more than I thought I did. I've started planning my entire day's meals, and I put it in the tracker, and look at it before meals/snacks to make sure I stick to what I planned to eat. Might not work for everyone, but it helps me.
Ladies, if you're like me and you love rich, vibrant eyeshadow, I have the best beauty advice ever. STAGE MAKEUP is the world's best makeup. The brand is Ben Nye. GREAT for humid climates because it's designed to be sweat proof! For bright colors, use the grand lumiere: http://www.stagemakeuponline
