Pre-measuring snacks

When I get home from the store, as I'm putting my groceries away, I cut up fruit and vegetables into portions and put them in bags so when I'm hungry, all I have to do is open the drawer and grab a bag, rather than grazing my pantry for something I really shouldn't have.

Water Can Fill You Up

I make certain that I drink my water. Every afternoon before making dinner I have a "hungry time". So I make a point of having a snack and a tall glass of water. This tides me over and keeps me from snacking while I'm cooking. I like to add a slice of cucumber, mint, or lemon to my water.

Slow Down

Practice putting your fork or spoon down after every bite and try savoring the flavor of the food you are eating.

snack packs

The little freeze top containers are extremely nice....just fix your vegey's and pop the top from the freezer and your vegey's are crisp and fresh when you decide to eat them later in the day. I got mine at CVS Pharmacy...I had a gift card.

My comfort food

One thing I really like that fixes my chocolate cravings is Yoplait Whipped Chocolate Mousse. It has 140 calories and is premeasured so I'm not tempted to cheat. When the weather is hot, I freeze it to use as ice cream. The whipped freezes better than regular yogurt.

enjoy super foods

I'm trying to eat more superfoods. Sweet Potato, Blueberry, almonds, garlic, and avacado are easy to add into the diet and they taste wonderful. I have been making microwaved baked potato chips with the sweet potato. They are great with curried yog. dressing.

Soft Drinks made me soft and flabby - NO MORE!

My wife and I started by not ordering soda when going out to eat (saved money). Then simply didn't buy any soda next time at the store. Now we are both off soda. Iced tea has made a great, low cost substitute.

Regular Eating

I make sure to eat ever 3-4 hours and drink plenty of water. This ensures that I won't get so hungry that I just eat whatever is around or find myself mindlessly eating.

Be Creative

If your craving something that is out of your calorie range, create and play in the kitchen to create a new healthier version. Another good one is to use substitues, freeze pudding cups for 3 hours - is just like soft ice cream and alot less calories and portion controlled.
