Tuna

It's a phenomenal protein. Lean, healthy, portable. I could be anywhere (work, home) and eat healthy protein with good fats to help satisfy my hunger and help prevent a fast-food run.

Greek yogurt for extending salad dressings.

Use non fat greek yogurt to extend salad dressings or salsa to add volume - not fat.

munching

I have a terrible urge to munch on something crunchy! I used to eat chip and switched to veggies but sometimes I get tired of veggies! so I started crunching ice cubes! zero calories and it really helps with the munching motion that I seem to crave! keeps you cool in the summer too!

Watch what you are putting in your mouth

I recently had a talk with my sister who brought to my notice that I binge when I eat out but I am mindful when I am eating at home and I realised it was true. So, I got myself a wrist band (those colorful rubbery things) and put it on whenever I go out. This way whenever I bring something to eat near my mouth I see the band and immediately check the portions and the food that I am eating. It is just a reminder that I should watch out for what I am putting in my mouth.

Carry a healthy snack at all times

I always carry a protein bar in my purse. I choose Pure Protein because it's a little lower in calories than some, about 180 depending on flavor. Things do come up where we don't get to eat as we planned and when I have this it helps fill me up and keep my protein up until I can get a regular meal

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!

First Track Then Eat

Before eating use your Spark Tracker to find out the nutritional numbers and know the calories you are about to consume. If the numbers are too high then make a different, healthier choice.

No bite tastes as good as the first bite

Anytime I am about to eat something that is high-cal (e.g. dessert) I think about how much satisfaction I will get from that first bite. The satisfaction with the second bite is a little bit lower than the first. And so on. So I choose however many bites I think I can balance between enjoying myself and not overeating, always remembering that no bite will ever taste as good as the first!

Cups & Scale

I like to keep measuring cups that range from a teaspoon all the way to a cup and a scale, on my kitchen counter all day. That way I can easily measure whatever I eat through out the day. This really helps me keep portion control in check.
