Chew gum to avoid snacking

Whenever I go to the grocery store, I always put a piece of chewing gum in my mouth first. That way you have an excuse to avoid all those free samples that the store clerks are giving out. Food does not taste good after you have chewed peppermint gum. But make sure it is sugarless gum!

Weight Maintenance

When I eat over my calories, I do extra cardio the next morning to burn them off. This has helped me not only keep it off, but I am 1-2 lbs. under my goal.

Get rid of your clothes as they get too big

Don't keep clothes that are too big for you. Clothes that fit you are your constant check that you are staying the course. When the clothes get snug you have too take care of it because you have nothing else to wear.

Stop the Snacking

To avoid eating at night, I brush my teeth after dinner. The clean taste in my mouth stops me from eating or drinking anything before bed.

Workout more, eat more, workout less, eat less!

I work out a good sweaty hard hour every day. If I decide to do more, I must up my calories. My body lets me know when it needs more fuel. But its common sense if you have a restful day, you should eat at the bottom of your calorie range. If you go hard, get up to the top of your range.

2nd Portions

After 1 serving of a meal, I drink a glass of water and wait the 20 minutes before allowing myself to get more, even if I still feel hungry. Usually once the time is up I realize that I actually don't want the food.

stress eating at work

Instead of keeping sweets and snacks around for stress eating at work, simply take fruits and veges to nibble on. If the sweets and fats aren't handy, you likely won't go looking for them if a bag of carrots is right there on your desk.
