Identify your worst 'snack time' and use it for Fitness Minutes instead
Late afternoons, I would snack while fixing dinner -- usually filling up before dinner was ready, but I'd still eat a full dinner. Now I go to the gym or take a walk during the time dinner is cooking and get a double benefit! Fewer calories in, More calories burned!
I don't like planning, but I find if I figure out what I am going to eat for dinner, put the information in the nutrition counter first thing in the morning, then I can figure out what I can eat for the rest of the day. It helps me stay on track.492
For my dinner I keep it balanced with protein and veggies. Then my other meals can be healthy foods that keep me from being hungry and I won't pig out at dinner time. I don't like just eating and when dinner comes find out I don't have any calories left, I will feel bad and over eat and feel worse.
