Track the Foods (and Drinks) you Consume Every Single Day (Even those Small Snacks at the Office!)

I was most successful in my weight loss efforts when I took the time to track the foods I ate every single day.

Can I Stop the YoYo?

Yes, I am a rollercoaster dieter. I have been such since about the age of 16. By the age of 18, I was a pro at both gaining and losing weight. When I am "not dieting" and I eat whatever I want, whenever I want I have overindulged myself right up to 160 lbs (age 45). However, generally I catch myself...

Cheerios, Skim Milk, and Water

When times get really hard for me and I am struggling to stay on the program I get a serving of Cheerios and skim milk. It takes a few minutes to eat, satisfies a sweet tooth, and the protein in the milk helps to satisfy.
