fruit and vegetable

I like to eat apples and celery with peanut butter. They are a quick snack and the peanut butter helps you stay full longer.

The 3 color , 3 plate rule

To add a wider variety of fruits and veggies to my diet, I made sure that I ate at least 3 colors of the rainbow on 3 plates of food a day.

Taste and See!

We know that those who eat slow give their bodies time to realize satiety and eat less. I eat alone a lot and find this a challenge. Here are two ways I slow down:

1. Look at my bite before I put it in my mouth. Realize what it is and looks like. Be grateful for the benefit I am about to receive.

2. Chew for a count of 20-25, noting taste and texture.

I find I eat more slowly and actually enjoy what I am having.

No Self-Control? Toss half before starting to eat

If I'm going to have a bad treat (think Hersey bar or ice cream from a stand), I find it easier to toss half of it BEFORE I start eating it rather than just eating half. I can't eat just half if it's in front of me. So for those few seconds when I still have a bit of self-respect and self-control, I toss away half.

So Delicious Coconut Milk Unsweetened

This is my new favorite for smoothies, replacing almond milk. It makes my smoothie very thick and creamy. (I did not like it for drinking though.)

Prepare Ahead

I find that if I prepare my food for work the night before it helps me choose wisely. I also am able to keep bags of carrots, lettuce, etc at work in the fridge so I always have something healthy to choose

Vary Your Caloric Intake

Jillian Michaels said on the Biggest Loser to vary your caloric intake: eat on the low end for two days, eat in the middle range for three days, eat on the high end (even going a little over) on two days. This keeps your body guessing. I did this all last week and lost 3.5 lbs!

High Fiber Dinner to Stop Snacking at Night

Eating a high fiber dinner keeps me full so I don't eat after dinner.

Example - Basmati brown rice, sweet potato, pinto beans, salad, chicken.

The meals are interesting as I use the foods as sides or ingredients.
