The tried-and-true habits that have helped you lose weight the right way.
the secret to my feeling better and losing weight is walking simple really it boots endorphens and seratonin levels and it also helps you get into shape and lose weight of course you also have to eat right too i believe in portion control first and foremost
I didn't start SparkPeople until I had come to the conclusion that it is best for me in doing this to not eliminate any foods I had been eating but portion control. I didn't want to feel 'deprived'. My surprise is that after 6 wks I have no desire for a lot of foods I thot I had to have.
Streaking works, and I don't mean like streaking of the 70s! I noticed my logon streak was only 6 days. I now have a 40 day streak of logging on, 10 minute exercise, and fresh produce daily. Magically those last stubborn 5 lbs, I've hung on to for 2 years are leaving!
When I feel the need for a sweet snack, I automatically reach for a Zone, Balance, or Luna bar! They come in tons of different varieties and flavors and are healthy all the way around. Packed with protein and fiber, and always around 200 calories, they satisfy my sweet tooth without ruining my diet!

you can eat a ton of plain popcorn without much damage to the nutrition tracker- when I need to "chew and crunch" I pop and eat it plain.
Be sure to w eigh out your food to be sure you are getting the right portions. I found that when I was just guessing I was actualy shorting myself. This wasy you can be sure you are getting satisfied with the right amount of food.
I snack on celery all day. It keeps me full until my next meal
I know that if I deprive myself of sweets I will not be able to stick to my program so I found a cookbook called Cook Yourself Thin and they have wonderful recipes for everything in there as well as sweets. Chocolate cake being one of the recipes in there for ppl like me. You should pick up a copy.
