Still have a treat

Keep your treats to once a week rather than each night

I have bottle of wine at the weekends now rather than saying not having at all

Then you only crave it more & more likely to over indulge when you do have it

Where you shop

Shop the outside of the grocery store. This will keep you in the meat, dairy, fruit and vegetable aisles and keep you away from the chips, candy and other processed foods!

Chew 20 times before swallowing food.

If you chew your food longer you will give yourself a relaxing and time for your food to hit your full point.

This will give you more time to digest it properly.

Try it!

Practice discipline at the grocery store

If you don't buy it, you can't eat it! If you can practice discipline at the grocery store--by not buyingunhealthy food, you won't have it at home. This will put you one step closer to achieving your healthy eating goals. I try to be very focused and stick to a list when grocery shopping.

Meals during the week

I like the idea of making my meals on the weekend for the week and am going to try that as my fellow sparker suggested, but in the mean time I am going to stick my left overs in the freezer for lunches next week. To keep it from getting dull.

Spike your water

A few times a day I squirt about 1/2 ounce of fresh lemon juice into my water. It's very refreshing - like fresh lemonade without the sugar.

Butter & Margarine

I don't put any butter or margarine on my sandwich or toast if I'm putting something else on/in it such as jam, cheese, egg, ham etc. I can't tell the difference and save myself quite a few calories.

Planning ahead

I plan all my food for the week and cook it on the weekends. That way I am not tempted at work to order out with others in the office. It also frees up more time to work out as I don't have to cook everyday.

Healthy Snacking

I keep precut carrot, red bell pepper, and celery sticks handy for healthy snacking when I get the urge. They replace potato chips, and other junk food.
