Study Habits

Instead of sitting around and studying, sit on an exercise bike or do some form of cardio that allows you to read while studying. Instead of sitting around and munching while studying, you'll burn calories. What's more, studies have proven exercise's ability to enhance learning and memory.

Filling, low-cal, nutritious, quick breakfast

The most filling, quick breakfast I've discovered to date is a container of Fage Total 0% Greek Yogurt (any Greek-style yogurt will do, but Fage is the best) with 1/2 cup Original FiberOne Cereal, and a palm-ful of berries. For about 180 calories, you get 17 grams of protein, 14+ grams of fiber, calcium, and a delicious sweet, smooth, and crunchy breakfast. This, along with a big glass of water and/or skim milk (an extra 9 grams of protein) will get me through to lunch, and it tastes great!

Fage Total 0% Greek Yogurt

This brand is, without a doubt, the BEST Greek yogurt on the market, if not the best yogurt out there, period. It is rich & creamy and good enough to be eaten plain. However, for a well-rounded breakfast, I mix in a generous handful of berries and some original FiberOne or plain Kashi GoLEAN cereal to add in some antioxidants and fiber. It makes a great, breakfast, snack, or even dessert!

Economic Portions

I've found that even though buying the pre-portioned ice cream servings from Weight Watchers, Skinny Cow, etc. is much more economical. One box of 6 bars for $5 may cost more than the $3 I'd pay for 12 servings in a half-gallon of ice cream, but those bars last 6+ days; reg ice cream lasts 2-4 days.

Frozen Veggies

Since I can't always get to the store for fresh veggies to steam (delicious, especially when sprinkled with Mrs. Dash!), I stock up on frozen & boxed varieties, with and without sauce. This way I always have an easy side dish or snack on hand!

Plate Sectioning

The best trick I've learned so far is dividing my dinner plate - 1/4 lean meat, 1/4 starch, and 1/2 veggies or fruit. Not only does it aid in portion control, but it's so EASY and is something you can do in almost any & every eating environment.
