Use Small Lunch Containers

Inspired by a favourite of mine, Japanese bento lunches, if you pack your lunch in appropriate serving size containers, your lunches will be kept in the right size range and you wont overeat.

Bestfood Canola Mayonnaise

Best Foods Canola mayo is Cholesterol Free and only 45 kcal per Tbsp. I was a Bestfoods junkie my whole life and wouldn't think of using anything else on my artichokes, asparagus or broccoli. It might be a Calif thing. This is JUST as good and a big kcal savings!

It's All How You Look At Things

When changing a lifestyle & learning to eat healthy, don't concentrate on all the foods you can't or shouldn't have, but concentrate on all the healthy & satisfying foods we can have. We put too much emphasis on foods we feel we will have to do without, when its really a matter of portion control.

Wear A Pedometer

I put on my pedometer when I put on my clothes. This makes me very aware of how much time I spend moving in the run of a day. Some days are 22 000 days and others are 11 000 but I always get 10 000 no prob! & having a cheerleader to report to at the end of the night helps too!

Sweet Treat

When I am craving something sweet I eat a non fat yogurt and dip pretzels in it. It takes longer to eat by dipping the pretzels and you get something sweet.

Whiten your smile

If you find it hard to stay strong during evening 'snack attacks', try whitening your teeth. When the craving starts slap on the strips (like Crest Whitestrips). You keep them on for 1/2 hr. By then you've probably gotten past your craving-moment...& now your teeth are whiter! Smile!
