Increase fiber for less hunger

If you increase the amount of fiber in your diet, you will feel more full even though you decrease your calories eaten.

Find healthy swaps

If you like..
* ice cream, find a healthier version (I like Dreyer's double churned no sugar added)
* fried chicken, find a baked version that you like
* high salt & fat snacks, try salted dry roasted edamame

There are always better options!

Great Salad with less dressing

I figured out a trick a few years ago that makes salad dressing go much further. Put your bagged salad (or dried torn lettuce) in a ziploc bag, add dressing, seal and shake. The dressing ends up covering every part of the lettuce. Less is more!

Plan my meals

Every week on my day off I figure out what i'll be making for dinner, and packing for lunch/snacks etc for the next week, entering it in the Nutrition Tracker. I can fine tune it all so that I meet my nutritional needs and stay in my target caloric range!
