Muffin 1's top tips

1.Prepare my day's meals and enter them into Fat Secret the night before (or first thing in the morning)so I know what my day's calories will look like. Then, it's DONE! I don't have to think about it any more and can focus on more productive things.
2.Calculate dinner calories first and always, always leave room for a fruit snack (or 100 calorie "Healthy Choice" fudge bar")before bed.
3.Have lots of yummy tea on hand. It helps a lot when I have eaten all my calories for the day and still feel like I want someting sweet. (I use stevia to sweeten my tea)My fav is vanilla caramel.
4.Always weigh every day. Always write down every bite I take (even if it was a "bad" choice) The awareness is what makes this work.
5.DO NOT ALLOW your "trigger" or "binge" foods in the house. I do not buy crackers, cheese, certain cereals,bread,nuts,etccc. If my family wants thes things, they need to go buy them and eat them away from me.
6.IF you must eat out: Check out the restaurant's menu online and decide ahead of time what you will order. Ask the server NOT to bring bread to the table and drink WATER with the meal. I always ask for lemon wedges for the water.
