Candy Vitamins!

I buy the flavored gummy vitamins and eat them throughout the day. It kind of feels like I'm sneaking some candy into my diet and the best part is that it's doing something good for my body!

Go to Food

One of my favorite go to foods is bagged Cole Slaw from the produce section of the market. It satisfies the need when you want something crunchy. It makes a great low calorie salad add tomatoes and shaved turkey. Try it with Seseme Ginger Dressing (I like Newman's Own Low Cal Version).

Eating Out Wisely

Plan ahead for that lunch out by downloading the nutrition info from the website of the restaurant (if available!). Look at the info and pick out a few choices so that, when you get to the restaurant, you have some guidance in mind.

Skip dessert when eating out!

I used to get dessert at restaurants every time! But the dessert was always sooo big. Now, when the waiter asks me if I want dessert, I say, "No thanks!"

Nothing tastes as good as being thin feels!

Stay Away From The Booze

Not only will this save you calories, and save you from feeling bloated and gross the next day, but it will also save your internal organs! Drinking in moderation is fine, but if you're a partier or in college, think about your liver before it quits on you -- it is NOT a fun experience.

Measuring Spoons VS Regular Spoons

I put measuring spoons in things like my sugar canister and my container of dry creamer etc. so when I have my coffee, I'm using accurate measuring instead of guessing. When I've guessed the amount before, I was surprised to realize I was putting in much more than I thought. Every calorie counts!!
