Using water to lose

When ever I feel hungry and it isn't time for a meal or snack, I drink a glass of water. Most of the time the water is actually what I needed not the food. If the water doesn't eliminate the hunger pangs, I'll eat a piece of fruit but the water usually works.

Satisfying evening snack

Every evening for an evening snack I either eat a container of Yoplain Whips Choclate Mouse (160 calories) or I have just discovered the Yoplait Parfait Delights (100 calories). It satisfies me and is healthy as well.

weight your cereal serving

I have been measuring my cereal with a measuring cup and I know I have been cheating by making a very rounded scoop. Recently I started weighing (using a digital scale) my servings. I have realized how much I was over pouring and it is harder to cheat the scale. I haven't missed the extra cereal.

Add an herbal tea bag to your water bottle for a hint of flavor

In order to make my 8+ glasses of water per day more pleasant to power through, I add a bag of herbal tea to my 20+ oz. Sigg bottle, which gives it just a hint of flavor with no calories. Lemon zinger and peppermint are two of my favorites. It definitely makes me drink more water throughout the day
