  • Great information!
  • Interesting rules.
  • I like the rules of not starving yourself (I eat 3 meals per day and I eat an adequate number of total daily calories), not skipping breakfast (I eat a morning meal on a daily basis), not making any food off limits (I keep "irresistible" foods/drinks, such as soda pop, fruit juice drinks, cake with frosting, and neon colored candies-such as M&M's, Jordan almonds, and Skittles, out of the house but allow for them when I'm offered those things for no money cost and outside of my home), doing exercise routines that you actually enjoy doing (I watch Netflix or read a book while I ride my stationary bike, I participate in sports and recreational physical activity classes with groups of friends, and I take a family member, friend, and/or pet animal along with me on my walks or when I go dancing), loving what you eat (I don't eat foods that I dislike the taste of), sleeping for at least 8 hours per night (I go to sleep no later than 10:30pm each night and wake up no earlier than 6:30am each morning), including carbohydrates in your daily eating plans (I don't follow a low carbohydrate diet plan), being flexible (I don't follow diet plans with rigid menus), going out to eat (once or twice a week, I'll order something from a restaurant), indulging in gourmet delights (examples of the more expensive splurge type foods that I enjoy include Celestial Seasonings herbal teas, gourmet chocolates, heirloom tomatoes, figs, Cara Cara oranges, asparagus, zucchini, pecans, almonds, Greek yogurt, mixed greens, baby spinach, heirloom carrots, white sweet potatoes, bison hot dogs, ground game meat burgers, fish, and the once in a while surf and turf), hanging out with supportive people (I do physical activity with my in person groups of friends, I talk about my healthy eating and exercise journey with my family members, and I help others on the Sparkpeople online message boards), and going shopping (I go clothes shopping when I change in clothing sizes).
  • Personally, I avoid restaurants. I have no idea what is in the food, but I can see the salt on the scale the next day.
  • Good article. Thanks.
  • Thank you for sharing some good thoughts!
  • Thanks for posting!
  • Good suggestions.
  • In other words: Keep is as simple as possible. 8-)
