I commute an hour every morning to work. I found that if I skipped breakfast, I would be in the closest drvie through as soon as I hit the city. Now I make a containter of fruit to go with me, and I do it the night before. Peel oranges, clean berries or grapes, and sometimes in the morning I'll add a sliced apple - whatever I can eat as finger food on the road. I often get in 3 fruit servings in the morning, have a fat free yogurt at work, and I'm set!

I love my fresh fruit, but I found I was wasting my money when the fruit would go bad before I could finish it. Now to save money if it gets close to browning or going bad I now fresh freeze it. Slice it into small peices and reuse the fresh frozen for smoothies or fruit salad as needed!!!
its no brainer that drinks can add on tons of empty calories with out doing much for your hunger. so instead of grabbing a nice soda or fruit juice, go for a diet coke or light lemonade or diet iced tea; at first the taste difference is very obvious but in less than 3 days you will grow into it i promise and it saves you the like 210 calories per glass.
you should never replace water with the drinks i mention above, but when you do want that occasional flavor drink go calories free- you will also feel guilt free. MAKE SURE ITS LOW SUGAR AS WELL!
