I make a menu for the week. This has helped when doing grocery shopping and during food prep time. I have found that there's some "down time" when fixing dinner so I will do some prep work on the next night's meal. This has cut down on time in the kitchen, which means more time some where else.

It's true. The times I take to prep all my veggies after I get home from the store & before they get put away, the more I am apt to cook with them or snack from them because it takes less time when I want to cook or eat. Takes just a bit of time at first but pays off BIG later....104
Every veggie possible to prep is ready for a meal, cooked or not...snacks, sandwiches, salads, soups and new recipes!
I tried losing weight many times with no success. If this is happening to you - Try counting your calories. It is the only way I ever have any success in weight loss. Tracking your fitness minutes is fun too, but I find calories super-important!
Stay in your range of calories and try to split your calories into 5 meals per day to speed up your metabolism!9
