NEVER give up!!!

One of the biggest things that has helped me stick with Spark People for 2+ years now, is that I made a commitment to myself that no matter how successful (or unsuccessful) I felt, and no matter how far I "fell off the wagon", I was NOT going to give up!!

Gradually Reduce Calories

Don't try to do everything all at once. I knew that cutting my calories drastically would sabotage my efforts. So I tracked my normal eating for two weeks and then gradually reduced calories and increased water each week until I was used to eating within my calorie range.

Use Recipe Calculator to create a healthy recipe

I use the Recipe Calculator to determine calorie count of a new recipe. I check the recipes on file to see if someone else has made it yet or create my own recipe and add it to my Meal Planner

The 400 Rule

I have used this strategy for a long time and it works for me. I eat basically 400 calories at each main meal and one 100-200 calorie snack. If your calorie allotment is higher eat three 400 calorie meals and 2-3 snacks at 100-300 calories depending on your calorie range.
