Its time for the 11 steps out of 12 steps for healthy lifestyle! We've made it this far! Whoo hoo!
Today's lesson is.....
A little bite here, a little bite there…
Guess what? It all adds up!
What am I talking about? When you are making yours or your kids’ breakfasts or lunches all those little "tastes" can add up to 100’s of extra calories in the day!
My advice? Keep a food journal. Log what you eat. Then you are accountable, for every little bite. Also, what you might think are little bites can be lots of extra calories.
This is a great way to easily chop a couple hundred extra calories you may be eating during the day. That could amount to losing a half a lb. to one lb. per week!
Also, those little bites fall into the “mindless eating” category, now don’t they? I mean are we really enjoying it when we are standing up stuffing food in our mouth with the spreader knife in the other hand?
So, keep meals and snacks to the sit down meals at the table. That way, you know what you are eating, and can remember it.
