Cream cheese

Try using fat free cream cheese (available at Walmart) instead of butter and cream. One serving is 30 calories and of course no fat. It's really good on a baked potato instead of butter, and I have also used it to make Alfredo sauce and to make the creaminess for chowder soups.

CHICKEN SOUP for the CRAVINGS (without the calories)

When I'm craving I grab a chicken Bouillon cube and heat up a hot mug of water. It's like having chicken soup without the noodles and chicken. It's filling, comforting, and satisfying. It is made by dehydrating vegetables, meat stock, a very small portion of fat, salt and seasonings. Plus you get that extra water in there!! emoticon

Eat BREAKFAST!!! :-)

I know, you've heard it 1,000 times (and so have I). For many years, I didnt eat breakfast. I would eat everything I could find before going to bed. Now, I eat 1/2 cup of oatmeal, 2 egg whites, half of a light english muffin, and non-fat yogurt. Sounds like a lot of food, but it's only 319 calories! I feel so much better throughout the morning!! emoticon

Fat Free Salad Dressing Thickening Secret

When I make fat free salad dressing I add a tsp of either Thick & Thin Not Starch, or xanthan gum. This makes a nice thick texture, and the dressing sticks to the salad better. It also adds healthy fiber to my diet.

Fruit spread with no added sugar

Use fruit spread made with fruit and fruit juice with no added sugar in place of fat on bread. A lot less calories. Satisfies sugar cravings.

Baby Steps!

Usually, I would jump all into dieting: change everything to fat-free, get the yuckiest stuff just because it's low-cal, turn away from every "fattening" thing I saw. That can only work for so long. I have made my changes less drastic this time around. Some low-fat items are really good. Some things you just need to eat as is and count it in your calories. Moderation & baby steps will get us there!
