This is a really good article. I learned a lot of these tips when l began my final weight-loss journey. One thing that was important was to know my pitfalls, and to work with my strengths and weaknesses. I know that I love eating until I am "full," so I did the following:
1. Eat healthy nutritious options first: broccoli, cooked cabbage, etc, became my "go to" foods prior to enjoying my regular foods. These made me full in a healthy way.
2. Food journal! This helps me see where my calories are going during each day.
3. Working with weaknesses: I love sweets, so I substituted my sweet treats for low-calorie sugar free options. (Be careful here, because sugar-free doesn't mean low-calorie). This takes a bit of work, but I enjoy a lot of things that I did before, just differently.
4. Plan and pack foods! This is one of the most helpful items. I store non-perishable foods in my car so that I have a "go to" when I am hungry instead of not planning what I eat.
