New Diet Tricks!

Fri, 21 Apr 2006 by Denise Austin

Having trouble sticking to your goals? Don't fret! Perhaps all you need are a few new tricks up your sleeve. Here are some that other Fit Forever! members use to help keep themselves on the right track:

  • Get a good pocket calorie guide. It makes keeping track of how many calories you're eating so easy, and it can give you ideas for healthy new foods to try.
  • Cut out the processed food. Low-fat and low-carb products claim to be the secret to weight loss, but many taste just plain awful! Go naturally low-fat and low-calorie instead with foods like fruits, vegetables, lean meats, and whole grains.
  • Keep lots of low-calorie snack options on hand if you need to nibble, you'll have good choices ready and waiting. Try veggie sticks with hummus, rice cakes with a little peanut butter, or fruit salad.
  • If you can't stop snacking in front of the television, turn it off and start a new hobby that keeps your hands busy try needlepoint, knitting, or quilting, or read a good book!
  • Keep a few low-calorie frozen meals in the freezer. On busy days, lunch or dinner is just minutes away! Think of it as fast food that's not fat food!
