Don't always say NO!

I find that when I continue to say no to a certain food that I always end up over eating that food eventually.
So what I do is say yes but I keep it in check. If I am craving chocolate I have a mini candy bar. If I want ice cream I have a 1/2 cut and I measure it.

minimize the cravings

When I get cravings for chips or cookies at the store I allow myself to purchase the 100 calorie bags of crackers and cookies or instead a big bag of chips I will buy the variety packs of chips because I know I will eat a whole big of Dorito's if they are in my cabinet.

Vegetable tray in the Refrigerator

Instead of cleaning, cutting and bagging fresh produce, I make a colorful tupperware party tray. I fill each section with a different veggie: broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, zuccini...you get the picture.
Snap the top on and it is ready when you are. Bagged veggies go back in the drawer.

Cutting the Chocolate Craving

This works for me. There is a part of my brain that waits to tell me when I haven't met my chocolate requirement. It then SCREAMS "Eat chocolate now!" and that's when I take a super B's supplement or B 100's. It is safe and within the hour the screaming has stopped. Really!

Making water enjoyable

To keep water interesting and not so tasteless I'll add a slice of fresh lemon or orange. Any fresh fruit will work to add a hint of flavor.

cravings solution: mashed potatoes

I keep single serving size portions of homemade mashed potatoes in the freezer for (carb)cravings. Potatoes, non-fat milk and some light margarine. Low calorie count(175) for cravings, nice craving abated feeling and even includes some protein(5g) and fibre(3.4g).

Shopping Service

My grocery store allows me to have a shopper. I make my list and e-mail it to my grocery store, pay for it and tell them when I am going to pick it up. It cost around $5.00 but I save so much more.

Menu Planning

I use a small calendar to menu plan for each month. I keep this in the kitchen near the pantry. I note ratings on my "new" recipes (keeper, etc).

Healthy Snacks

As soon as I bring home veggies from grocery shopping I cut them up into bite size pieces and put them in a clear container in the frig, top shelf front and center. Now my family has been grabbing the veggies more often then other snack foods.
