Eating fruit before dinner makes you full fast.
Have a glass of water 15-30 minutes before meals
Because of my prior dependence on "sweet drinks" when thirsty, I have come to feel like I want sweets when I am thirsty. I have gotten into a habit of drinking 8 oz of water and waiting 10 minutes before deciding that I need a snack.
When storing food in the cupboard, turn it around so that the nutrition facts are facing outward instead of a picture of the product. That way, your first thought will be "are those calories worth it?", instead of an appetizing picture that might make you lose control of your food choices.
I label all leftover foods that go into refrigerator and freezer.
I try to substitute applesauce for oil every time I can manage it. I buy the 1/2 cup snack sizes of unsweetened applesauce, and it is usually the exact amount I need. That way, no extra applesauce spoils in the refrigerator!
I hate taking the time to make a salad but I found if I cut up my lettuce ahead of time and place it in an airtight container with paper towels on the top and bottom, the lettuce stays crisp and fresh for days. Whenever I want a salad, I place a little on my plate and just add the extras!
I sub all of my ground beef with turkey. I think it tastes even better than beef and I do not even miss it!
Don't think of foods as good/bad but healthy/unhealthy. Rate from 1-10 & make healthy substitutions!
