Eat sitting up straight

Unless ordered by a Dr. one should eat while eating sitting up straight. Our son-in-law has heart problems and over weight. He would eat while lying on his side on the couch. The Dr told him that is worst thing he could do. We are so proud of him and he has made headway on his issues. emoticon

letting the kids help meal plan

I usually ask my kids ages 4 and 10 what they want to have when I am making up the weekly menu. They are already very knowledgeable to making healthy choices. I figure if I ask them what they want then it is all around a win win situation.

Ask... Be Heard

When eating out, ask how the food is prepared. I'm not afraid to ask for substitutions, even when they say no substitutions. Pick out two or three dishes before hand so you have an alternative. I've had little problem getting what I want prepared how I need it prepared.

Sugar- 4 grams a serving or less

When shopping the stores on the inner parameters, notice the sugar content on labels. Aim for 4 grams or less per serving. This awareness will help you stay the course on choosing cleaner foods with less imitation flavorings and strange unnatural ingredients. It's an eye opener for sure.

Sweet tooth

I've always had a sweet tooth and I've learned the hard way to only buy a single serving if I need a treat and not a whole bag. It's much harder to resist treats that are at home.

A veggie at every meal?

Thats right I said it...lol I have found that if I eat some type of very fiberous veggie like celery or something along with my fruit and other meal foods.. it helps me keep from snacking so much.. Strange but worth a try...
