Don't Drink Your Calories!

Do not use your calories on drinks. Water is calorie free, add a lemon wedge or some crystal light 0 calorie powder to add some flavor. Pick a flavored light coffee to brew instead of a dark roast. You are less likely to need sugar and/or creamer. Opt for a calorie free sweetener or tea instead.

Lemon water does work!!!!

Drink a cup of warm/cold water with a little bit of fresh squeezed lemon juice and it curves your hunger pangs. I think that the lemon tricks your stomach so it think that it has eaten and will hold keep you satisfied until your next meal.

Getting My Water In

To help me get in my water every day, I drink one cup of water every time I use the bathroom. This is in addition to the water that I bring with me wherever I go during the day. I usually end up with at least 12 cups of water a day.

Water

Always be sure to drink plenty of water while eating. Not only is it good for you, but it will make you feel full faster. I put my fork down between every bite and take a drink of water; it's made a huge difference!

Junk food...not in my house

If you see it you will eat it! Don't take junk home! If you HAVE to have it eat it at work and share with co-workers. If you bring home a pack of cookies you will prob eat all of them. Leave the junk at the door.

end that gnawing, between-meal hunger

Eating 4 x 350-calorie meals (rather than 3 x 500-calorie meals) helps me stay with in my caloric goal and has completely ended the gnawing hunger between meals.
