Shop the perimeter of the store

Here you'll find healthier options: vegetables, fruits, meats, diary products, and bread. Eating less processed foods is healthier, saves calories, and has more nutritional value. Plus you'll avoid temptation by sticking to the outside.

I love the food network but I was always hungry after my shows were over. I would crave whatever I saw on TV. I had to stop the torture!!!

Hold off hunger cravings!

The best thing to do if you want to snack is to drink "chug" a full 8 oz glass of water before eating what you wanted to snack on. 9 times out of 10 for me, I've chosen NOT to eat what I went into the kitchen for! emoticon emoticon

Family Dinners

I eat air popped popcorn BEFORE going to a family dinner or any kind of large dinner where I will be tempted with lots of food. By the time I get there, I am already feeling full and so, don't overeat.

Get the Water IN !

Had the hardest time drinking the 8-8oz glasses of water until I remembered as a nurse we would encourage patients to drink with a straw. Holy Cow it works like a charm. Before you know it the glass is empty and you just fill it up again. Using a 16 oz. glass works even better !
