Stare your H2O Down

Make a point of always having a glass of water in front of you, no matter what task. You are more likely to reach for the easily attainable water than get up and go to the fridge for something to snack on.

Eating Breakfast

It's important to eat breakfast everyday. Your body goes through a "fasting" period during sleep and needs to be replenished. When you don't eat breakfast; you're more prone to overeat or eat unhealthy foods. It's also good to drink water before you eat. You end up not eating as much! Try it!

Don't feel ashamed

Track all of your eating and drinking. If you have a high-calorie day, don't let it get to you. Just put it down and move on. Later you can look back and see the progress you've made.

Something sweet that doesn't break the calorie bank

I find tasty treats that meet my sweet tooth needs without putting me over the top on my nutrition totals. I have a huge sweet tooth and eat some kind of dessert almost every day. I don't feel deprived and I'm not overindulging...win/win!

Up your Fruit/Veg Count...

Eat fruit/Veg before a meal. about 15 minutes prior to a meal try eating a serving of fruits/veggies. You can have 4 servings as a sure thing if you eat some for a snack as well! I also find if I do this I tend to not eat as much at meal time.

Buy a Chicken

I love the whole roasted chickens that are commonplace at most grocery stores now. They're usually fairly cheap ($5 for a whole chicken!) and come roasted! I keep it in my fridge for the week and any time I need a protein fix , reach in and carve off a little meat. YUM!

Get rid of HFCS

There are reams and reams of reports about High Fructose Corn Syrup. I only know what's worked for me. As soon as I my husband and I started cutting it out (about a year ago), we started to lose weight (don't go by my ticker, I just joined SparkPeople).

Fruits and Vegetables

I don't know about you but I eat a lot of fruits & vegetables. If I want a snack, I'll go to the fridge and pull out strawberries, an apple, or an orange. They give me something sweet, juicy, & healthy. Plus, all our meals are preapred in advance so no shopping in the fridge for something quick.
