The Plate Diet for Portion Control

Before I joined Sparkpeople, one of my friends told me that the best diet was the "plate diet" -- which would help you make the right food and portion decisions. Sparkpeople's diet suggestions seem to fall closely within this very general diet, and I have found that it is simple and effective!

Oil & Vinegar

Oil and vinegar is a great way to top a salad. Add a little fresh ground pepper and you can avoid a lot of sodium. Extra virgin olive oil has a great taste. Vary the vinegar; balsamic is my favorite, but love to mix it up with red wine and apple cidar. 1/2 tsp - 2 T oil depending on calorie target

Easier said than done

Breakfast is not dubbed the most important meal of the day for "excrement & giggles."

At my heaviest [235lbs], my physician prescribed me to eat breakfast within the first hr of my day [everyday] or when I wake up. Logged when, & what I ate for breakfast.

Best 1st advice received! emoticon

Do not stay up late like I do!

Do as I say not as I do--since my hubby has been away I've stayed up later and later. Bad move: not only does it throw of your circadian rhythms, it puts a strain on your diet. If you DO stay up late, avoid giving in to the munchies and drink hot tea or drink water.

Use your dishwasher!

When everyone in the house is sick, it is best to run your dishes through the dishwasher. A sink of luke warm soapy water may not be enough to disinfect your dishes.

Staying active through the day

Always look for ways to stay active throughout the day. I find it helpful to take the stairs rather than the elevator, and try to go for short walks during my lunch break.

Onions

Cut the ends off an onion, stab it with a fork and put it in a jar and put in the room with a sick person and it will absorb all of the bacteria. The next morning the onion will be black with bacteria.

- PROGRESS AND NOT PERFECTION

I can preserve a healthy mindset by just simply believing in PROGRESS & NOT PERFECTION~

(if all else fails~water 8 ounces of water) and a little walk can save my attitude.

Plenty of Sleep

When I get tired, I make sure to get to sleep, because otherwise I get really sick and collapse later.
