Chew Gum

I am notorious for eating as I cook, especially during the evening when I am cooking for my family. To keep me from pinching here and tasting there, I chew on sugarless gum to keep my mouth busy. I also chew gum throughout the day to curb my appetite.

Eat Raw Fruits and Vegetables

Eat at least 50% of your daily intake as raw fruits and vegetables. It has been the best weight loss secret I have learned, although a friend says 75% would be better. I have consistently lost weight doing this. It keeps me feeling energized and my digestive system clean and moving.

Start Your Day off the Right Way

Don't start your morning off by going thru a drive-thru. You're only bound to fail the rest of the day. Starting the day off w/a light/healthy breakfast, like oatmeal, will set you up for a great day. You'll be less tempted to "ruin" your day by making unhealthy choices for lunch, dinner and snacks.
