Went to Sam's Club with my nephew, Fancybird24 last week. We double dog dared each other to try the soy milk that the Demo Lady offered. It was awesome! I have lactose problems anyways, so this was an even better deal for me. It was fantastic with my cereal!
Drink a glass of water with every meal and with any medication you must take. It helps get in the water!
If you know you're going to a family get together and want to maintain your healthy diet, bring a healthy side dish along. Not only will you be helping the party planner by bringing extra food, but some family members may ask for a taste of what you brought and ask for the recipe.
Stress eating is one of my problems. I have discovered that if I have some air popped popcorn with just a little popcorn seasoning it lets me chew and crunch but does not add a lot of calories. And fiber is very good for me!
I keep a glass of water by my bed at all times. I often wake up and I feel very thristy, so by keeping the glass by my bed its in quick reach....it also helps for waking up in the middle of the night I'm not fumbling around in the kicthen for a glass of water.
I love chocolate but I find myself eating less than stellar goodies and wasting calories. Instead I eat only the chocolate desserts and candy I really love while ignoring the rest of it. I've started using this for all my food and my enjoyment of food is higher while my calorie count is lower.
I eat low sugar oatmeal for breakfast. I notice i do not get hungry for lunch early like i used to when I didn't eat oatmeal...this is your secret weapon!!!
When you are craving chocolate the ultimate is taking 1 tbs of nutella and a handful of strawberries. Slice the strawberries and spread a little nutella...they are out of this world!
I shop the bulk bins at the higher end grocery stores when I want a fix for sweets. I am usually already there for something. If I want a white chocolate carmel cashew turtle, then I buy 1 and the rest stay on the "shelf" - I do not come home with a "bag" of cheats.
