Make your meal count. Don't watch TV, read, or use the computer while your eating. When I eat at my desk at work while using the computer, I reach for more food and it's gone! I don't even remember eating it. Focus on the meal. Taste the food. You'll eat less and enjoy it more!

I have become very focused on leafy green vegetables. It's simple. Breakfast with lettuce. Lunch with spring greens. Dinner with Romaine. Instead of having focus on what I can't eat, I am focused on finding a variety of tasty dishes featuring the meals compliment.
What keeps me motivated is looking at my meals for the next day. Change the foods around to my liking so I look forward to each meal. Make it exciting, not boring and the same ole yogurt or special K for breakfast because thats what commercials say. Keep it simple, but delicious. I get on this site several times a day to look at my upcoming meals - which keeps me focused...and keeps me looking forward to my next meal.
