When it gets hard to get in all the water you should drink I go for either sparkling water with lemon or lime (other fruits would work as well) or Clear American (available at Wal-Mart), which is also a easy way to sneak in some vitamins as some of them contain vitamins and/or minerals that we need for health reasons.
If you go the sparkling water rout the only calories you get are from your fruit, if you go with Clear American there are zero calories
I found that buying food with less calories helps me lose weight. Here are some examples: butter spray such as Parkey, I Can't Believe It's Not Butter have zero calories, using Fat Free Kraft mayonnaise has 10 cal/serving, 12 grain light bread has 40/cal per serv, mustard has zero cal, skim milk has 90/serv, egg beaters has 30 cal/serv and 80 cal yogurt helps to. Plus I am starting to eat a good variety of fruits & vegetables which are full of fiber and help keep me full.
Tricking your mind is a good way of helping you lose weight. I feel that I am eating regular calorie food and ever since I have lost 47 lbs, I am not as hungry as I used to be and I have gotten off caffeine & drink a lot of water. I hoped I helped someone with this information.
