Hi look

Take a "Caffeine Nap"
Never heard of a caffeine nap? You down a cup of coffee right before you take a 15-minute nap. The 15 minutes is long enough for the caffeine to take effect, and your nap is short enough that you don't wake up groggy. Click here for a complete how-to! emoticon

Mocktail Anyone?

I used to always drink alcohol on "date night". Now I enjoy a "mocktail" made of Club Soda on the Rocks with a wedge of fresh lime. It has Zero Calories and no artificial sweeteners which always make me hungrier and thirstier. I feel like I'm enjoying a special drink - but so much healthier than alcohol.

Quick way to feel full

Getting that growling in your tummy an hour or so after you've eatin dinner? Try snacking on a banana and drinking water directly after. The water allows the banana to expand in your stomach giving you a true feeling of being full.

Eat Blueberries Daily

I eat them as my main fruit in the cold season, they are low in carbs and low on the glycemic index. Blueberries make the perfect between meal snack and have been shown to have an anti aging effect on the brain. Stock up on them at Target; i recently saw a big bag for $11.
