Not a breakfast person

I am not a breakfast person, but am starving by lunchtime. So I wake up and drink my 2 cups of coffee.To keep my appetite under control until lunch, I make a GNC whey protein shake. It has 100 calories and obviously a good amount of protein (that I would otherwise miss).

Add a bit of protein to your snacks!

A piece of fruit or cracker might be a good snack -- but adding a bit of protein to it will make it much more filling! Grab a slice of cheese, lean turkey or half a glass of milk to keep the munchies away for longer.

Be bold!

When ordering in a restaurant I am learning to ask for just what I need even when it is not on the menu. Salad dressing on the side; Marinara instead of Alfredo Sauce; just a little oil in the sauté. It worked at Olive Garden and I felt great!

Planning Ahead When Eating Out

Almost every restaurant has their menu online these days... so before heading out to eat, check out the menu and decide ahead of time what healthy options you have available to you. That way, you'll be less likely to be "tempted" by some favorite dish you see on the menu!

Sprouted Grain Bread May Prevent Stomach Issues

When I switched from white bread to whole grain bread I started experiencing upset stomachs. But when I tried sprouted whole grain bread instead, my stomach did not object. And another benefit is a great nutty flavor and hearty texture. I don't eat any other kind of bread now.
