Give up or reduce one sinful food that you eat/drink daily. Make it part of your goal list and track it. For example, I love coffee with a Tbsp. of half and half. I drink 2 or 3 of those a day. If I drink only 1 a day as my goal, I lose calories. Calculate how many calories you will lose over a year by changing that one little sin. For example: 1 Tbsp. of half and half cream is 20 calories. 20 X 365 = 7300 calories! OMG! I still enjoy one cup of rich, creamy coffee daily, but now I savor it!

Devin takes the food we love, ups the nutrition, lowers the calories and fat, and keeps it tasting just as good as the original. She wrote the Biggest Loser cookbooks, Fast Food Fix (which takes fast food favorites and makes them healthier), and The Most Decadent Diet Ever (my current favorite).
Without these cookbooks, I may be off the wagon by now. But she makes healthy food taste so good that I don't even want the junk any more!
