The tried-and-true habits that have helped you lose weight the right way.
I'd like to say SP is the best kept secret but I keep telling all my friends about it! Food journaling on SP is the #1 reason I lost over 30 pounds and kept it off. You don't realize calorie consumption until you see it in black & white.
I've discovered that if I take smaller bites that I eat a lot less; probably has something to do with it taking longer for me to eat therefore my brain signals being full faster.
Drink 2 glasses of water before doing anything else everyday. Drink them while getting ready for work or before you allow yourself that morning joe!
If there is more than 1 serving in a package, I divide it into the number of servings it says into snack size bags.
When i go to carry in dinners i carry a weight watchers cake that is individually wrap for my dessert!
I NEVER liked veggies. I learned that they like me. Eating more vegetables made me FEEL better - the weight loss was just icing on the cake. Veggies fill you up, give your body what it needs, fiber, vitamins. Eating less processed foods makes you feel lighter, less sluggish.
Sometimes I try to eat with my left hand . (To slow me down) When I don't, I put the fork down in between every bite, try to chew at least 10 times & take a sip of water between each bite. When I am that conscious of what i am eating I feel full and satisfied afterwards.
Drink one entire glass of water before a meal, take your time eating, and then drink one glass of water after your meal. Fills you up.
I have become very focused on leafy green vegetables. It's simple. Breakfast with lettuce. Lunch with spring greens. Dinner with Romaine. Instead of having focus on what I can't eat, I am focused on finding a variety of tasty dishes featuring the meals compliment.
