Snack Basket

I keep a basket of healthy snacks on my kitchen counter and reach into it when I need something. It includes 100 calorie almond packs, cups of diced peaches and mandarin oranges packed in water, 60 calorie packs of prunes, sugar-free pudding cups, and fresh fruit.
All have 100 calories or less.

Correct Portions

If you select a small food portion in a few hours you will be hungry again. If you choose a large portion in the same number of hours you will be hungry again because the food has been digested and distributed to either energy or fat. Why not choose smaller.

My favoriet diet jello

I keep cut up blocks of sugar free jello in the refrigerator. I add a couple teaspoons of yogurt to it and it makes a refreshing cool treat for the hot weather.

Getting more dark leafy greens

Instead of a cocktail, I make a green smoothie as soon as I get home. It staves off that end of the day hunger so I don't snack while fixing dinner and gives me two servings of fruits&vegetables. An added bonus - all that spinach has vastly improved my skin.

Trigger Foods

I don't keep trigger foods in my house. I only get them when I eat out - things like ice cream and macaroni and cheese are saved for when I go out to eat and my portions are a bit more controlled.

fruit after main course makes me feel fuller

I find that if I eat an apple, pear, clementine or some kind of small fruit with my dinner that I feel much fuller, so smaller portions are not a big deal.

Eat Naked, But Keep Your Clothes On!

Try foods in their naked state, without butter, sauces and salt. You will often be surprised at how good food tastes all by itself. You'll save on unnecessary fat and sodium.

Planning Ahead

Taking a few moments every evening to think about and plan my food intake for the next day helps to keep me on track. If I make decisions in the moment, I am much more likely to make poor decisions.
