What’s for dinner?
My stomach starts growling and I just realized that I haven’t figured out what I am going to make for dinner, so I head into the kitchen and roam through the cabinets to figure out what we have that I can throw together. Within minutes I have eaten a few wheat thins here, some cheese-its there, chips, and a hand full of nuts.
There just went a few hundred calories!
When it comes to eating and losing weight, I have noticed that planning out meals and snacks before the day begins helps in self-control and keeps one within their calorie range. The night before sit down and write down when, where, and what you will be eating. Carrying around this little piece of paper will help when you start getting hungry at 9am and you know that at 10am you are going to have an apple. It also prevents you from reaching for that donut that someone brought into the office that looks so tempting… I hate when they do that (especially when someone else on a diet forces you to split it with them because they are on a diet and don’t have self-control to avoid it entirely.)
What are some healthy meals that you have planned out for the week?
