Snack Time

I found the worst time of the day for me was mid-afternoon. I needed something to eat that was healthy and filling but would make me want to eat "more." I settled on air popped popcorn with a butter flavored spray or carrots and hummus.

individual packets

If you divide large packs of crackers, pretzels, or chips into snack-size bags (about 1 cup each) you'll be less apt to overeat.

Dip your fork in your salad dressing.

Helps you to eat less dressing. Still get the taste of the dressing, get to taste more of the salad, and less calories. :)

NEVER BE HUNGRY

I was raised to believe 3 big meals a day was the way to go but now I realize how wrong that was. I now eat 5 to 6 times a day. Small portions of healthy food. I have never been hungry and now feel satisfied rather than full. We must as they say; eat to live not live to eat! This worked for me.

Eating on the run

I always keep something to eat in my car in case I'm running errands and need a little something to tide me over. Usually raisins or a high energy bar. It's quick and better for me than going to a fast food joint.

Weigh and Measure

Weigh and measure your food. It's what has made me so successful in my quest for a healthy lifestyle change.

Pick 'n Stick

I automate at least one meal every day. My breakfast is almost always the same.. Less to think about; less chance of making poor choices.

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.
