10 Tricks to Staying Fit & Healthy

  1. FORGIVENESS.  You have to learn how to forgive yourself, if you want to have a healthy relationship with food.  You will have bad days, accept them and move on.
  2. If you had a bad eating day, don’t finish the night off by binge eating.  Stop as soon as you realize it was bad.  If you binge eat, you will feel even worse afterwards and then you’ll be more tempted to fast in the morning.
  3. Don’t eliminate all junk food.  If you do this you’ll be more tempted to binge when you do see it.
  4. Find a food that you can limit yourself to only a handful at a time and be satisfied.  This will help build your confidence on portion controlling.
  5. If you are having a craving that you don’t want to feed, Brush your teeth, suck on a mint or chew on gum.
  6. Exercise first thing in the morning.  It will help you limit bad foods the night before and help you feel more confident with what you’re eating during the day.
  7. Try roasting carrots and brussels sprouts, they’re delicious…coat them with a little olive oil, salt & pepper and bake for 40 minutes.
  8. Drink lots of water, if you don’t like water plain, try with crystal light or other low-calorie drink packets.
  9. Don’t weigh yourself. How your clothes fit will tell you the true story.
  10. Leave the house when you’re bored, stressed or emotional. All three of these things can lead to overeating.
