By tracking food ahead of time and at least including "place holder" snacks, sometimes I surprise myself with a calorie savings by not eating something planned. Last night I used my savings for dessert and still used less calories I would have had I eaten the planned snack.
You can do anything for 21 days. If you avoid all sugar and sweeteners for 21 days, you'll be surprised how your tastes will change. After 21 days you won't want all that sugar anymore, it will be WAY too sweet! And at 15 calories per teaspoon, that's a lot of calories saved in those 21 days, too. :)
