A Quick Way To Change Foods When I Preplan The Same Daily Snack!
Members Were Sparked
Using my Nutrition Tracker daily when I was losing the wt, is what HELPED ME THE MOST!!! Now, during Maintenance,I try to use it daily ,but can't always get to the computer! So, I usually will try to plan ahead what will be eaten during the week that is the SAME~for example~ SNACK~ Choc. Cheerios & 1/2 Fat Free Milk is my daily snack that helps my Folate intake. But if I run OUT of Cheerios during the week, I'll substitute Honey Bunches of Oats w/Almond cereal [1 cup] w/same amt of milk.
Now I have to change the Nutrition tracker! I have found a quick trick that helps me~ Go to Remove FOODS@ the bottom of the page.Click on ALL the foods eaten for that meal,Check them off,then go back and click ONLY the actual foods eaten. This way,I save time from checking off each food individually

It is good to eat up to 10 g. of protein within 30 min. If working out. My favorite way to do that is to eat low calorie string cheese. It has 9g of protein and is not only low in calories, it is portable in your workout bag and helps cool you down. I also use it to get in sufficient calcium during the day and no carbs involved.4
I refuse to pay more for less. Those cute little individual packages of snacks for kids and other controlled portion needs are every where! They are bad for my budget and the environment. I just measure out 100 calorie servings or 1 serving size and store them in tiny reusable bowls with lids. The kids love to help and it might take me 20 minutes a month. It also helps to make sure i do not grab the whole box of cheese-its when watching a movie! 432
I also pre-cut celery, carrots and other fruits and veggies so they become a quick and covenant snack.
