Making certain that all food choices in my kitchen are healthful choices helps me to stay on track with my goals. I follow the You On A Diet eating approach by Drs.. Oz and Roizen. I've done the same with the food I have at my office. I have small baggies of healthy treats such as almonds or walnuts, a few pieces of fruit and some single serving organic soups. Here' a link to my grocery list: http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal.asp?id=MAIZEY
I clear my cupboards of the foods that may be tempting, I am able to make my kitchen a "no wrong choice zone". My husband has a few favorites that he wants around, so one small cupboard has his treats. I steer clear of that cupboard - out of sight, out of mind!

Artificial sweeteners may save you calories, but it's not really that great a bargain. Artificial sweeteners have been connected to weight GAIN, INCREASED food cravings, INCREASED hunger, INCREASED insulin resistance leading to Diabetes and DECREASED ability to taste naturally sweet foods like fruit. And, yes, some sweeteners are STILL possibly linked to CANCER - they just haven't been on the market long enough for the link to show (all according to a recent Dr. Oz show).
