Salt is handy

By accident, I discovered a handy trick to stop eating when I realized I was full - it's so trained into me that I should 'clean my plate' I often eat more than I really need.

When I was eating supper a couple of days ago I accidentally put salt on my food when I was reaching for the pepper s...

make it count

I try my best to always eat the very best "type" of a food - so if I crave something I try to never settle for a mediocre sample. I find that I need less of a particular food if I take the time to find the healthiest, best version. Sometimes I actually crave "junk food" but that's okay - I give in...

Meal planning with the food tracker

Recently I have been recording my meals prior to eating them, so that I can plan in advance meals that serve me and my goals.

This has several advantages:
My computer is on the second floor, the food is on the first, so I am working without any tempting visual cues, and I am less likely...

Not a real secret

Keeping a journal is so not a secret, but I find that when I do it, I really can control my weight - however it needs control. I was very ill a year or so ago and losing weight without trying which was scary after my years of maintenance. I started keeping the journal for the first time to be sure I...

Satisfy a craving in small dose

Saying no forever to pastry and sweets was never in my game plan. Trying to do this would be unrealistic and a road to failure and desaster. Most of my trips into binging were after denying a craving until I can't resist anymore and then eating a full truck of it.

There was a important need t...

Accountability, Work, Water, Prep

I make it public at work that I am eating healthy. This way when there are unhealthy snacks in the break room I am less likely to "cheat". Especially if prying eyes are around.
I will also advertise when I did not succumb to the tasty treats, shamelessly looking for a "good job!" from a co-wor...

Apples in too many words...

They're a great friend. Easy to keep on hand, don't spoil quickly. Tidy and affordable. Make sure you always have an apple nearby. I like mine room temperature and so leave some around where I can see them and grab one BEFORE getting overly hungry to keep from spiraling off track. <...

Tracking my food BEFORE I eat.

I know what I have at hand to choose from and find that there are still surprises (good and bad) that can be incorporated or excluded BEFORE stepping on that land mine that means I have to adjust food later in the day to stay on track. I had NO IDEA that pistachios were so high-high calorie as they...

Plateau Buster: Keep your starchy carbs and fruits to earlier in day and don't eat late.

I work late and therefore often eat dinner late but I also get up early so go to bed soon after I get home. Eating a normal dinner meal late was halting all progress for over a year. It doesn't matter how healthy you eat, nor how much you exercise - if you eat late and go to bed it can cause proble...
