Let’s share Diet tips that help you stay on track……….
When mixing my vanilla protein shakes I use coconut water and half of a packet of Crystal Light. My favorite is the Peach Mango Green Tea. It comes in a box of 10 on the go packets. (Serving size: 1/2 packet, Servings per container 20, Calories: 5).
Do I need a fitness tracker, like the FitBit on air?
I joined WW (again), but this time, I find it easier to stick to because fruits and most veggies are free. I’ve lost 10 lbs so far.
I’m eating a fully-raw breakfast. I usually have apple slices and peaches if there are in season. I also have a banana. Sometimes, I’ll eat a cup of grapes. I love oranges and incorporate those in my diet.
For lunch, I eat a salad with Paul Newman’s Raspberry Walnut dressing. 2 tablespoons = 3 pts. I also add a tablespoon of sliced almonds for 1 pt. I also eat a Lean Cuisine. I pick the ones that have a sodium content less than 500 mg.
For dinner, I try to cook. If not, I’ll go out for some baked chicken. I eat a baked potato once a week. I load it with pico de gallo (onions, tomatoes, serrano peppers). The veggies help slow down the absorption of the carbs from the baked potato. I read that one baked potato is equal to a cup of sugar. You’re better off loading the potato with real butter (fat) than eating it without anything. The butter will also slow down the absorption of the starch.
I eat fruits and veggies as snacks, and I drink lots of water throughout the day. I just need to increase my cardio activity. I have my Chair Gym in the living room and use it while watching TV. I’ve developed my biceps once again…YAY!
awesome tips, thank you
Soup cans for strong arms.
I crave sugar all the time, and the doc wants me to gain weight, so I just keep eating it, but it’s not working. I had Heath Bar cake for breakfast today. Sugar is SUPER aging. I need help!
How can I curb my sugar cravings?
Which sweeteners are bad?
One thing that helps me control eating is I switched to salad plates for my meals, instead of the larger dinner plates. It tricks my eyes into seeing a full plate, when in fact it’s actually much smaller portions…
That sounds yummy!! Great job ladies for staying healthy!! I don’t have a tracker thing. Is that something I should really look into? I don’t write down what I consume. I just mark the calender if I did some kind of exercise.
Writing down what I eat with a calorie and fat value is helpful. I have tried apps for this, but for me writing it on paper works better. It must be a body, mind connection.
Also, writing a big X on the calendar on the days I exercise makes a difference. At the end of the week, I write down the total amount of days I exercised for the week. At the end of the month, I write down the total amount of days I exercised for the month.
I then compare previous weeks and months of exercise. I sometimes give myself a great job talk or you need to pick it up talk.
Thank you for starting this thread.:heart:
