Feed your Sweet-tooth

I always crave something sweet after a meal and usually in the afternoon, but instead of eating a cookie or bowl of ice cream reach for the fruit! Keep your favorite fruit around the house and be sure to cut it (if necessary) as soon as you can so when your sweet-tooth hits have some sweet-fruit!

Natural Constipation Cure

With all the healthy eating, I get bound up. The quickest natural way to relieve the situation is one tablespoon of vegetable oil. No taste, few calories and no drugs.

Divide your portions

If you're hungry and you want a snack, divide the snack in smaller portions and eat 1 piece, then wait a couple of minutes, eat the next piece etc...

Cut it up....

I cut up melons purchased at the grocery store right after getting them home. Each melon (honeydew, cantaloupe, watermelon) goes in its own see thru container. This way I am motivated to eat more fruit before it goes "bad." Also makes it an ideal snack for the kids to help themselves to!

Cramming veggis in

I like to cram in 2-3 servings of veggies with my noodles. I'll cut up carrots, mushrooms, onions, spinach, etc and toss them w/diff types of noodles, gr. chicken and sauce. Look for recipes like Korean Jap Chae, or Lo Mein. Tons of veggies which makes the portion look HUGE, and really filling.

Stretching the Dressing

For my daily salad at work, I put 1/2 the serving amount of my dressing in a baggie with my cut up tomatoes. The juice from the tomatoes adds to the dressing as well as seasoning the tomatoes. I then pour it all on top of the salad and shake it. Covers the salad and saves calories!

Mix It Up

I like to eat light two days a week (my lower calorie limit) and moderately 3 days a week (in the middle of calorie limit) and splurge 2 days a week (top of my limit both days, and even 100 to 200 calories over my limit one of the two days).
