Tips of the week.

Having a personal trainer has taught me a lot.  So I figured, why not share simple eating tips with the rest of you...

1.  For a midnight snack, eat a little protein, but no carbs!  Try protein powder in water, or my favorite - Celery and Peanut butter.

2.  Cut back, don't cut out.  Do you have a comfort food that messes with your diet?  Have you tried giving it up for a little while then find yourself gorging when you can't stay away a day longer?  Don't try to eliminate that food, instead, just cut it in half.  My trainer told me that 10% of my days diet can be whatever I want.

3.  Alright this one may seem kind of weird...  But if you've already had your 10% for the day and you have another craving, go brush your teeth.   It's a simple way to beat your cravings 

4.  Find yourself getting lazy every once in a while or if all your buddies want to eat fast food, it's okay!  As long as you find the right thing on the menu...  Sometimes I find myself trapped thinking what should I get that will do the least damage to my healthy goal.  Go for the grilled chicken instead of crispy (fried).  For example if you're at McDonalds get the Grilled Chipotle BBQ Snack Wrap.

That's it for now!  I'll try to come up with more later :)
