Work on your presentation. Food taste better when it looks good on the plate. Play around with diffferent plating options. Creative presentations can get you engaged with your meal and you won't think of it as less or healthy it will just be good food!!!!140
Do alot of soul searching before you begin your journey to fitness
I have been down this road many times and I have learned it is very important to know exactly why you put on the weight, While I love food I knew for a long time that it was not the love of the food but the fear of being thin,,exposing myself to the world. I have spent the last year at Sparks exploring and working through those issues and now as the new year approaches I am not ready to lose the weight and be all that I am supposed to be...I have learned that positive thoughts are so important
Snacks are am important part of a Healthy Diet and Exercise Program. They provide you with the energy needed to support you bodies need throughout the day.
It's not only important to find snacks you like but to find a wide arrainge of calorie ranges.
I have 35, 40, 65, 70, 100, 110, 125, and 140 calorie snacks that I eat on a routine basis. This enables me to mix and match snacks based upon my over all caloric needs and it allows for a lot of variety.
I find it very satisfying that at the end of a day where I've eaten to the upper end of my caloric range that I can have a 35 and 40 calorie snack on hand as it satisfies my needs on a physical and phsychological level. Diversify your snacks and enjoy.
