2. Skipping breakfast will leave you tired and craving comfort foods by midmorning. Be sure to fill up on things like fruit, egg whites, veggie omelets, cottage cheese, flaxseed oatmeal, or high-fiber cereal. These options are healthy, tasty and filling.
3. We make poor food choices when we’re famished and there’s nothing healthy readily available. To avoid this, have an "emergency stash" of non-perishable alternatives in your car, your desk drawer, purse, or briefcase. Carry a small bag of raw almonds and dried cranberries, a packet of oatmeal, or a few protein bars for just such emergencies.
4. Next time you're feeling wiped out in the late afternoon, forgo that cup of coffee and reach for a cup of yogurt instead. The combination of protein, carbohydrate, and fat in an 8-ounce serving of low-fat yogurt will give you a sense of fullness and well-being that coffee can't match, not to mention some vital nutrients.
5. Making just a few changes to your pantry shelves can get you a lot closer to your weight loss goals. Stop buying the food you use to snack on all day. Just eliminate the temptation.
6. Nothing's less appetizing than mushy vegetables. Frozen vegetables store much better. Food suppliers typically freeze veggies just a few hours after harvest, locking in the nutrients.
7. Eat every two hours. Between your main meals, eat a small satisfying, low-cal, low-fat, healthy snack containing some protein. This will help fuel your metabolism, decrease hunger, and regulate your digestive system. It also helps to decrease the portion size you crave at regular meals. When we go 3 to 4 hours without food, our blood glucose levels—and sometimes our patience—begin to drop.
