Hello_Kitty1809's top tips

1.Plan your meals... Even if it is a schlep, if you know what you are going to eat, it is easier to prevent cheating.
2.Cook in bulk and freeze in correct portions. This takes the "effort" out of cooking every day, especially if you are working and/or single.
3.Have a "diet" buddy who supports you. Someone to share recipes with, exercise with etc. It's much easier to do when you are a "partner in crime".
4.Try to stay away from alcohol. Or make sure that you leave enough calories for a glass or two. But remember that the more you drink, the more you want to drink and the next morning the hangover will drive you to junk and greasy food.
5.Drink a lot of fluids (preferably water, but this is difficult for many people). Try different herbal teas etc to give you a bit of variety.
6.Keep busy. Then you don't think of food so much. And set mini goals with little rewards. This will keep you motivated if you are serious about loosing those extra kilos.
