Alot of people (me included) assume that to lose weight you should always choose the fat-free options. I'm now realising that I actually NEED fat to feel satisfied and that going under my fat goal wasn't helping. Now I include some full fat dairy in my diet and try and eat nuts in some form every day.
Even buying low-fat yoghurt instead of fat free can help!

So many of us wish for a magical pill that will make us thin. However, food is more powerful than any weight loss pill or supplement because the food you eat can make you either fat or thin. So, instead of trying to find a magic pill to combat what food you're consuming, why not simply look at the food instead?
Something got you down? Angry at someone? Don't sit and let the anger overtake you. Instead, use your emotions to fuel your workout.
I've found that if I decide that instead of getting mad I'll get even by getting thinner/hotter/more fabulous then I have a better, harder workout than normal. Instead of feeling guilty about comfort eating or being lazy or having excuses to not eat right or skipping the gym, I feel fantastic because of the workout.
