Eat REAL Food

I am fully aware that I am incapable of living off of egg white omelets and baked chicken the rest of my life. I realize this is a lifestyle change so why focus on food I do not want to eat? Portion control and deciding on what I REALLY want to eat is the key that keeps me at or below my goal weight!

Shoulder Bacon

Love bacon but hate the fat? Try shoulder bacon! I get mine from a butcher and the bacon is so lean that I have to pre-spray the pan with non-stick spray. Lower sodium than turkey bacon too!

Lots of Fitness DVDs

Over the years, I have accumulated a huge fitness DVDs. Workouts vary in type of workout, duration and intensity. I always have a workout that can fit my schedule and energy level, no matter how busy or tired I might be. If you do not have a lot of fitness DVDs, check out the local library, trade with a friend or check out Netflix!

Kettlebells are great to bust a plateu!

I started kettlebells a few months ago and oh what a difference! I recommend the Iron Core series but there are other DVDs and instructors out there. Start with a light weight to avoid injury while learning proper technique. A good kettlebell workout can burn 900 calories in just 45 minutes!

Love Shamrock Shakes?

Try adding a few drops of peppermint extract to an Alba Chocolate Snake Shake (made with cold water and ice) while blending. Very refreshing and tastes very similar to a Shamrock shake - for 70 calories!

Thomas' Mini Pretzel Bagals

A relatively new product, these mini pretzel bagels are YUMMY and contain NO FAT, although they are quite high in carbohydrates. They are not sliced but it's worth the effort to make a slamming jamming sandwich!

Test Tasting

Are you worried that taste-testing while cooking will add up the calories? Use a butter knife to dip into the food to taste and to limit the quantity of food ingested before the meal!
