Instead of salad dressing, try pouring a little plain Balsamic Vinegar on your salad. It's only about 5 calories per Tbsp & No Fat! And it's very tasty. :-)
(It's also good poured over sliced strawberries & grilled veggies)

When I feel hungry, sometimes it has to be something hot, so I boil water and add a portion controlled miso soup and add some cooked ve and there I have it and craving is gone.
I find I can't eat a whole apple or orange at the same time so I buy the ones already cut an bagged, then i grab a few bags throughout the day
Drink one cup of water before a meal, and one cup of water after the same meal. It adds up to 2 cups with breakfast, 2 with lunch, 2 with a snack, and 2 with dinner, all added up to 8 glasses a day! You'll meet the goal no problem! ^_^
I used to never eat breakfast, partly because I couldn't be bothered thinking about what to eat. Now I make the same thing every day - oatmeal. It's a bit boring, but I dress it up with cinammon/vanilla/nutmeg/raisins, and I don't miss breakfast and sabotage my efforts.
Sushi is a great alternative to fatty, high calorie meals. Believe it or not, it isn't that hard to make. Try making Cones or sashimi if rolls intimidate you. Temaki is the cone and is more commonly eaten in Japan.
I keep a box of prewashed baby spinach in the fridge. If I'm having a can of soup, I throw in a couple fistfuls. Same thing with pasta sauce, scrambled eggs, and I also use it for sandwiches instead of lettuce. Great way to get iron and a serving of veggies!

Adding capers to whole wheat pasta and marinara makes the meal AMAZING! Also, adding goat cheese to the sauce..gives it a rich creamy taste with a small amount of calories added. Mimics pasta alle vodka but low cal!
