Easy Healthy Snacking

The best snacking advice I can give is to buy produce such as carrots, celery, etc and get some snack size ziploc bags. Wash and cut up the produce and put it in the bags, stick them in the fridge and whenever you need a healthy snack there they are.

Lunch: Pack it at Night

I pack my lunch each night, usually when I'm cleaning up from dinner. That way, when I'm rushed in the morning, I can't forget to make a healthy lunch.

Think of your Calories as a Budget

The best thing I was ever told was to think of my calories as a budget. Know how many you can have each day and before you eat something ask yourself if you can afford it. If it's worth the amount you have to spend and you have the calories eat it if not rethink it.

Push the reset button

Bad day? Blow your calories? No problem. You can push the reset button anytime. If I've gone off track, whether it's for a month or a meal, I literally stop, take a moment to breathe deeply, and imagine myself pushing a giant RESET button. The image lets me release what I've done and move forward.

its not really a secret

Drink lots of water. It keeps you full and I find that sipping it through a straw keeps my mouth busy enough that I am not looking for something to eat.
