Mix It Up Protein Shakes

If you do not like fruits or veggies, try making your own protein shakes and add them as ingredients. I use Syntrax Nectar protein powder, add skim milk, water, fruit, veggies, nuts, tofu and mix it in the blender. WHen mixed together the taste of the veggies is hidden in the mix. Drink for a meal

Plates

I put my food on a smaller plate so it 'looks' like I am getting a whole plate of food. Right now I am using a salad plate. We always think we aren't getting much to eat if our plates aren't full of food and this has really worked for me. Years ago when I was 'dieting', I used a saucer.

To Little Food?

I 've tried starving, counting calories, reading labels-eating whole grains, low sugar, low salt, high fiber, high protein low carb you name it - I have done it! I am on a plateau - an what is working for me now? eating 6 small meals - about 1 every 3 hours - all meals w/carbs, protein & fat.

No Food 2 hrs before bed time

I have found that I eat a lot at night, so to curb this, I decided not to eat anything 2 hours before I go to bed. This will curb my snacking and lead to the next step of no snacking at night.

gonna make it work

I have been on spark for a little while and reading other success stories and understanding that others faced the same problems each day and did not give up, motivated me to finally stick with it and do whatever it takes to stick with it, also motivating others by responding to blogs and sharing

Break up Weight Loss Goals

When I started to lose weight, I had 100+ lbs. to lose, which seemed a little overwhelming! I broke my weight loss into 5% increment goals, which ended up being right around 15 lbs. each. This created smaller goals that became achievable, but not "easy". So far, I've lost over 25%!

Think your way to eating less...

I found on the second day of my new life style that I could think my way to eating less. I had a chicken breast sandwich for lunch and ate the bread and chicken separately. I had more bites (made me think I ate more) but the same amount of food. Cutting all my bites in half does the same thing!

It's OK to snack

I've found that if I eat a snack in the afternoon, especially before going to the gym, I have a much better day.
