I go out to eat once a week or so and bring home half ..I always get pretty much what I want. I noticed that when I brought home leftovers and the fat was cold & congilled..made me think I will seperate as much as I can before I warm them up from now on..thus cutting down on some of the fat.

I find healthy substitutions for my favorite indulgences. Small protein shake serving (flavored w assorted extracts, spices or cocoa powder) frozen in place of my regular ice cream cravings. Using applesauce or pumpkin in baking instead of oils or butter.
Lets me feel like i'm still enjoying my favorite foods for a large fraction of the the calories and fats9
Try to stay away from the supposed "healthy" processed food. Instead, grill up some onions, tritip steak, red bell peppers, chicken, and zuccini for something truly healthy, but still with that amazing flavor.
Food that does contain chemicals is SO harmful.
Eat a handful of grapes! Eat some strawberries. Grill your own chicken! It's yummy and healthy!
What's your favorite natural food? I like to grill onions and eat those (not even kidding i don't need anything else to eat)
