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..

If you cant trust yourself w/ a little, DONT have any at all!!!

This is true, i use this tip and it helps trmendously. My siblings always ask me how i stay away from sweets, and i just dont eat them! If you dont tease yourself with the slightest taste or thought, you won want more! Simple? It really is. And if someone is trying to get you to taste something you know in unhealthy and might be good and they say "well what if you like it?" THAT might just be the problem huh? So dont give in, it isnt worth it, really. But if it is to you, and its NATURAL, do it!
