brush and floss my teeth

I have a tendency to consume more calories eating snacks after dinner than I do all day. Brushing and flossing my teeth when I'm tempted to eat junk makes my mouth taste and feel good, and I'm less likely to eat. Plus, I hate flossing. More motivation to not eat.

Crazy for Coconut Oil

I have learned this week that if I eat a tbs of virgin coconut oil before my hard work out I can blast thru it. Before I had been drinking a half cup of black coffee (literally 4oz.) but after 15 minutes I was having a hard time focusing. So besides staying hydrated the coconut oil has really helped out with stamina and seems to clear some of the brain fog. I love the way it tastes too. emoticon

Drink lots of water very early in the day

I try to get 1/2 my 64 oz. of water before noon. And if I fill a glass of water to brush my teeth, I drink it all -- I don't toss the unneeded water. I keep glasses in several rooms with water in them and when I see it, I drink it. It lessens hunger through the day & less to drink at night (bathroom stops).

Atomic Fire Balls

When I'm craving something sweet, my go-to is an atomic fireball. The little red piece of candy is too hard to bite, so it lasts a long time and keeps me from overeating. At only 23 calories, it's a good deal!

Find healthy foods/recipes that you love!

I almost always start my day off with some sort of oatmeal variation because I love oatmeal. I usually sweeten it with a mashed banana, add egg whites for protein, and 1tbsp of natural peanut or almond butter to keep me full longer. Sometimes I will add some hemp hearts or chia seeds for other health benefits. I always look forward to breakfast because I absolutely love what I cook!

Portioning

My secret is to switch to a salad plate permanently. It looks like a lot of food is on my plate without it really being there.

No Place Like Home! Cooking meals at home.

Every weekend, my husband and I discuss our dinner meals for the next week and check our schedules of how much time we have to prepare the meal. We always have a backup plan if our first plan doesn't work out. My husband is thrilled to be eating at home every night and I am seeing great results because we are. I have lost 11 pounds in a month. But, best of all I feel so alive and have much more energy.

broccolli sprouts!

Have you tried these? I knew due to grass allergies I could eat very few alfalfa sprouts, but I can eat broccoli sprouts! They are super slow calorie and great on a salad or sandwich..
