Limit the salad dressing, when eating out or at home.

I order salad as a main course when eating out and it is a meal for me at home. I limit the amount of salad dressing I use by ordering it on the side and using my fork to dip into the dressing then into the salad, it really cuts the calories from crossing you lips and to the tummy.

Late night eating

I've really been struggling with eating after an 8:00 snack so I came up with a strategy for it since I can pack on 300-400 calories with a late night binge. Now, when tempted, I will ride the elliptical for 10 minutes and drink some water. I figure that should distract me and exercise more.

Great pre-workout snack

For a great snack before working out, slice a small banana in 1/2 length wise. Smear 1 teaspoon peanut butter in the middle and put back together like a sandwich. Kids would love this too!

Small Meals Keeps Your Body Running on an EVEN Keel!

When my first trainer told me this,I though she was nuts! Keep eating through the day?! But as I've grown accustomed to it,it DOES make SENSE!! When you fill your body with small meals,you keep the metabolism burning at an even rate-not getting to starvation mode,where when I get hungry,can eat WAY

Sharing

When you snack or enjoy a meal that may be more calories than you need. Share with someone else. You still get the satisfaction of splurging with blowing your calories for the day. It also saves $$$.

My Survival Snack

Whenever I need to eat a few calories in order to make my caloric goal or on the run and need to nibble on something, I get a few Tic Tacs. They taste great and only add a few calories.

Tracking Works

I can be in denial about how much I am eating. For me it is important to use the tracker to keep me honest and not over-eating. It also keeps me from under-eating. Basically, it just takes out all the guesswork.
