Ziploc® Zip’n Steam® Microwave Cooking Bags

I fell in love w/ veggies that come in steamer bags that you put directly in the microwave. So I was thrilled when these came out. They are so much less expensive than buying brand name veggies in single-use steamer bags. Put in any fresh or frozen veggies, fish or other meat, microwave away!

Think and ACT like a Skinny Person

Skinny people eat in moderation, exercise and are active. It isn't about depriving yourself of every pleasure in life... live your life like a skinny person and you will soon be one!

Dealing with Cravings

When I get cravings, I like to postpone them. I tell myself that I can have it on Sunday (for instance). Then when Sunday comes, I'm usually not in the mood for that food. If that doesn't work, I brush my teeth.

Cravings that won't stop

If you have a craving that lasts a little while, go ahead and give in but only eat a piece of what you are craving. And no more than the serving size. To prevent you from going back and chowing down more, brush your teeth and keep some sugar free gum on you.

Cravings

When the cravings are on your mind and you cannot get rid of them despite drinking all of your water, try brushing your teeth! I use a mint flavored toothpaste and am less inclined to want to eat after that. If the munchies are still on your mind, try chewing a couple of sugarless pieces of gum!

track your food before you eat it

I input the food I *think* I am going to eat on sparkpeople before my day even begins. This way I can gauge where I might be liable to overdo it and can adjust my plans accordingly!

Change Up Daily Calories

If your goal is to consume 1400 calories daily, change it up a bit. If you need to consume 1400 calories in order to lose weight, you need to consume 9800 calories a week to lose weight. Some days consume up to 1700 and some days only consume 1200..it keeps your body confused.
