Food Gifts

When someone gives you a gift of food, thank them graciously. Then quickly give it to someone who has a family and will enjoy it without guilt. Enjoy that someone gave you a nice gift, enjoy that you gave someone a nice gift, enjoy that they eat and enjoy the gift - more enjoyment for you, fewer calories for you, too! Everyone wins!

Try using an acupressure mat

I discovered the acupressure mat. I use it on the soles of my feet, and sometimes other areas of the body. It relaxes and stimulates at the same time. We started a SparkPeople group for those of us trying out the mat, and we welcome you!

Drink lots of water and dance during housework

If you feel hungry and you know it is not real hunger, drink a lot of water and put on your favorite music and dance as much as you can. It will take your mind off whatever emotion is prompting you to eat. Works for me every time. emoticon

Healthy Heart, Healthy Body

Fact: Heart Attacks are the #1 killer of Americans. Check out the American Heart Association's web-site. The food we consume affects our LDL cholesterol levels (the bad) and our HDL (the good) Foods high in saturated fat, & hydrogenated fat cause plaque to build up in our arteries...which in turn can cause angina (pain) in your heart and possibly even a heart attack. We not only have to worry about the amount of calories we consume, but the quality. Complex carbs=good, Simple carbs=bad.

Centering

Close your eyes and take 3 long slow cleansing breaths. It brings you to center....brings you to aware...then begin eating. It releases pent up energy that drives you to eat mindlessly and brings you to smell, see, and take pleasure in your food.

Reducing Stress

Reducing stress, as we have all been told, keeps us healthy and helps us lose weight. I do one or more of 3 things daily to reduce stress. Pray the Psalms. Meditate. Listen to quiet music and read. emoticon

Get your 8 glasses of water

Every morning on the way to work I stop at McDonald's and purchase a Large (32 oz.) UNsweet tea; it only costs me $1.08. After I finish my tea (I commute 50 miles one way) I refill that same 32 oz. cup with water a minimum of 2 times per day. On average, I drink over 100 oz. of water a day that way.
