Make it your lifestyle

Don't commit to doing anything to lose weight that you're not willing to do for the rest of your life, day in and day out. This will ensure that you stay balanced, moderate, and sustainable in your weight loss.

Grocery store salad bar is my secret weapon for more than salads

I've found that buying fresh vegetables from the grocery store salad bar saves time, money and waste, with the added benefit of boosting my daily fruit and vegetable intake. I fill a container with fresh cut and ready to go items and use these all week for omelets and other dishes.

eat a larger lunch

I eat a larger lunch instead of dinner. I then can have a light dinner and feel more like walking afterwards. I don't feel so sluggish or tired.

Protein Bars

I always keep a few protein bars in my car. (I found a brand that is under 200 calories, low in fat, and actually tastes good.) It's good to have a non-perishable option available for emergencies--like leaving the packed lunch at home or the two o'clock grumblings. Good for post-workout, too.

substitute Cucumber or celery instead of chips


I really love salsa. We make it fresh at home. But I had a problem with chips. Since really the chips are just a vehicle for the salsa, I find that I still ENJOY my salsa immensely if I eat it off of crunchy celery or cucumbers

Add Cauliflower to your fruit smoothie

I have to eat special vegetables for my blood and I really get tired of them. So, I dropped a couple of flowers of Cauliflowers in my fruit smoothies. You cannot even taste it. So I get more veggies with my fruit.

Packing fruit and Veggies to go

Every week on my days off I get fresh fruit and veggies, wash them, cut them up and put them in baggies in the fridge. That way I can just grab them and go.

Increase your Veggies

Too busy to cook a real meal but want to get your veggies in? Take your meal-in-a-box (let's say it's a box of tuna helper) and add a bag of frozen veggies to it, making it more nutritious (and it feels like you can eat more).
