Before, I used to work out like crazy and eat barely anything while I did not lose very much. Little did I know, I was eating way too late. Now, even on days when there is no time to exercise or eat that well, I make sure to eat earlier than 8pm. The earlier the better. Try it and you will lose!
You know after a BIG workout at the gym you get home and fell like you can eat a horse (to restore your body's energy.) Anway I always make myself a big salad for lunch, w/carrots, lettuce, cucumbers, onions, peppers, tomatos, protein and maybe cheese. I also have fruit after.
Whenever I leave the house for any reason, I think about how long I will be away and if I think I will be hungry or thirsty during that time. Then I bring healthy snacks and always carry a water bottle with me. I use a refillable water bottle and always have it wherever I go.
Wegman's has dinner's to go for as low as $6.00. The food is great & most are healthy cooking. Wegman's has all their take out food nutritional right on their sight so there is no guessing!
Eat the right foods. When we eat a lot of carbs our bodies can't use all that sugar and it stores it as fat. Eat 3 meals a day with 45 to 60 carbs and a sufficient amount of protein. Increase activity and lose. I did this and lost 45 pounds in 4 months. Keep busy. add 2 snacks each day plus meals.
Besides starting my day out exercising I like to eat all day. I eat small portions of healthy or low fat foods all day long and that helps me to not get so hungry. Being I love to eat I find that if I keep things around such as crackers, cut up nibble type vegetables, easy to eat fresh fruit.
