Talk about a healthy alternative to Peanut Butter....this comes in a powder you mix with water - no added stuff to make it bad...just natural pb powder and really good. I mix it in a protein shake for a wonderful PB vanilla protein shake . Low cal and Low fat...45 calories for 2 tbs!
I found a replacement to reduced fat PB...it's called Better'N Peanut Butter - can be found at Super Targets, Bi-lo, Harris Teeter...only 100 calories and 2 fat grams for 2 tbls!!!
Use the nutrition tracker and add sodium to track and keep it under 2000 mg a day....you'll be surprised at how you change your food choices to fit the sodium requirements.
The great thing about Sparks is the recipe buider! I have entered all my favorite dishes and know exactly the number of calories,fat,fiber and sodium content of each dish...you can make changes according to the recipe to reduce calories and make it a healthy meal and then add it to your favorites!
Make an appointment with yourself (actually put it on your planner) and schedule your workout time daily. This keeps you accountable and lets you say no to other engagements because you already have an appointment! It is the most important appointment you can keep for your health.
Keeping a food journal is the key to weight maintenance. When you plan your food daily you will be sure to get all the food groups covered and keep you from eating food that could cause you to regain the weight.
