Water

I carry a bottle of water with me everywhere. I sip at it all day long and then it doesn't seem like I have to down alot of water all at once to get in my daily requirement. If I go out for a longer period of time I always take a few so that I won't run out.

Smart Balance Fat Free Milk

Fat Free Milk that is just like 2% milk! I am not one for skim milk etc. I like my milk to taste like something and to not have the consistency of white wash! But this is surprisingly good. I bought it and tried it yesterday and was surprised by how much it is like 2% with the texture and is yummy

Planning!

I do much better if I put my meal in the tracker BEFORE I make it/eat it. That way I can see the nutrition and adjust what I'm eating if necessary. I never go overboard this way!

Ole Brand Low Carb, High Fiber Tortillas

I love these tortillas - they taste great and are very versatile. I use them to make breakfast wraps, lunch wraps, and quesadillas. I not only get in half the fiber I need for the day (12g) but I am not wasting calories (only 71 calories). You stay fuller longer too.

Bites, Licks, Tastes

Otherwise known as BLT's! I used to find myself nibbling on the food left behind on my children's plates. BLT's add up! Now, when the kids are finished eating, I have them pour the rest of their drink on their left-over food before they bring me their plate. YUCK! no more nibbling for me!

Waking Up Hungry

It used to be when I woke up hungry I'd get some candy and go back to bed...now I drink a glass of water and try to go back to sleep - if I am still awake and hungry 20 minutes later, I'll eat a cup of yogurt or a piece of fruit because then I know I wasn't just thirsty

To get as much juice as possible from an orange or lemon warm it up a little first: it increases the yield.
