The tried-and-true habits that have helped you lose weight the right way.
My favorite snack, when I am starving and crabby, I find that if I eat about ten or twelve UNSALTED almonds, it is a great pick-me-up with only maybe 85 calories approximately...and it satisfies, plus it gives you some protein fuel. I pre-count them and put them in a little container .
Stop eating 2 to 3 hours before bed, helps you sleep better and keep evening binging at bay.
I stop focusing on what I can't have and instead focus on what I can have. It helped not creating cravings or feeling deprived because I looking at what I can't have. I'm surprised at how much I can have and make wise choices.
i have twenty mins between my classes, so instead of sitting waiting for class to start like i used to, i climb up the stairs in my building. 65 steps about three or four times. might as well burn a few extra calories!
I never will park close to a store when I shop. I park a good distance from the entrance. Every bit of walking will help. Try it?
I took a whole week of food and added spices such as cayenne, chili and cajun..sweet potatoes,chicken, soups. Whatever your favorite food, It raises the body temp, just like exercising. lost 3 pouunds in 1 week.
I always carry a small note pad and a pen in my purse. Since I do not have internet access 24/7 to track my food I use the notepad to at least write down what I ate. That way I can not forget anything or better yet lie to myself that "I haven't eaten anything all day".
It is important to know your basal metabolic rate. It is the number of calories you need to function each day at a minimal level. There is a spark article that will tell you how to calculate it. I was surprised at mine and it made me realize I have a few more calories to use each day .
I am more or less a stay at home mom..work two hours a day; monday-friday. So I found myself eating because I got board. So what I do now is sewing projects. This helps me keep busy verses eating when I am board.
