But My Body Says Im Hungry

Your body does not have different signals when it needs water or food. So sometimes when you think you are hungry, in fact its just your body asking for water! So the next time you say "how can i be hungry i just ate' Drink a glass of water and find something to do for 15 minutes!

Planning Meals

Don't wait until you are hungry to decided what you want to eat. I have to decide what to eat before I get hungry otherwise I can't say no to temptation or will go with whatever is easiest which is normally not the most healthy.

brush teeth before giving in to cravings!

before giving into a craving brush your teeth- after you brush your teeth food tastes gross so you will no longer want to eat whatever it is you are craving- by the time the taste of the toothpaste goes away, the craving will have passed

Sustainable Weight Loss

Sustainable weight loss means making lifestyle changes that can be done for life. Itís moderation in eating & exercising. Diet is a quick fix that fails over time; lifestyle changes get you there & keep you there. No more yo-yo cycles.

Tiny Bowls

I use baby bowls for ice cream and foods that are high in calories and/or fat. The baby sized bowls are small and will only hold a little portion of food. A regular bowl will holds a larger capacity and I usually put more into the bowl.

When I crave something sweet.

I chew trident bubble gum. Not only does it satisify my sweet tooth, but I get to blow bubbles too.

Get it to Go

When you order a dessert at a restaurant, ask for it in a to-go box an a plate. When you get it portion out how much you want onto the plate and just eat that; save the rest for later :)

tiny bites

when you have a dessert, cut it into tiny pieces and wait a minute between each bite. often you will find that just a few bites of chocolate is all you need to get the flavor and cut the craving.
