I try to eat only things that are pretty easily quantifiable. If I can't log it into my Nutrition Tracker or determine the nutrition value, I don't eat it. Of course, this doesn't always work, but if I make it my general rule, it simplifies my nutrition tracking, making it easier to watch my calories.

If you are surrounded by mounds of clutter it's time to ask yourself why? When I started to lose weight something profound happened to me. Not only was I losing pounds by simplying my menu, but I wanted to simplify my life. Accumulating things to dust is not only not healthy, but someone else can use what I dont need. The older I get the less I need or want. Materialistic things mean nothing, only health matters!
Practicing Suze Orman's mantra "Live below your means, but within your needs." compels one to spend less and simplify their lifestyle. Only if you spend less than you bring in, will you be able to save the difference!
