If I brush my teeth several times throughout the day, it prevents me from wanting to go back into the kitchen to eat or drink. I love the minty fresh taste and hate the way it makes food and drinks taste! So I get a double bonus--a great smile and fewer calories!

So this is probably a no-brainer for most people, but for me it was a revelation yesterday. I went through four glasses of water with my supper simply by taking one bite of food and then one sip of water. I hate water, so this was a major deal! I'm also not used to drinking anything with my meal; I prefer to save it for the end. But I found not only did I get the water down, but it wasn't so bad since I knew I could have a bite of something tasty right after my one sip.
Another 'benefit' of this method is that you feel full faster, so you may eat less for a meal too.
