  • Water!!
    Start with simple changes.
    Walk, or do other exercise, for at least 20 minutes a day, at least 3 times a week.
    Make sure that you are drinking enough water, at least 8 8oz glasses a day.
    Eat an apple or big pile of veggies before meals.
    Eat 7-8 servings of fruits and vegetables a day, in at least 3 different colors.
    Stop eating simple grains eat 5-6 servings of whole grains a day.
    Cut way back on, or elimite, meat and dairty. Eat at least 2 servings of legumes a day.

  • I eat precooked, prepackaged crabmeat and lobster. They are good and filling and sweet so sometimes I pop some as a snack. guilt free!

  • Fruits, veggies, whole grain fiber, celery is really good for this it takes forever to digest. Nuts are also filling and good for you. Heathy cold cereal.

  • Any fresh fruits and vegetables are going to be good because they contain larger amounts of fiber. Some of my favorites are celery, apples, carrots, cucumbers, bell peppers, bananas, melons, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, grapefruits. Also, switch to whole wheat breads and pastas and use sweet potatoes instead of white potatoes. If you need a sweet snack, try Quaker "quakes" in chocolate or apple cinnamon flavors as they have the least amounts of fat. I love them for little treats occasionally.

  • Nuts -- especially walnut and almonds!! Even though they are higher in fat, they are very healthy for you! Walnuts are considered a "superfood" because of the omega 3s that occur naturally in them. They are extremely high in protein and will keep you fill longer!! A great snack to have would be a yogurt with apple and walnuts (2/3 tbsp). This comes out to approx. 124 calories, which is not hugely different from those 100 calories pack cookies, but you'll get 100x the nutrition.
