To everyone who might think this is interesting, enjoy!
Vegetables and hot beverages are good strategies to fill you up without filling
yourself out. Enjoy herbal tea, decaffeinated coffee or sugar-free hot
chocolate with your fruits, yogurt, or other snacks. Minimize your use of added
sugar or cream; this will only turn a healthy drink into a high-calorie treat.
Try other alternatives like lemon, cinnamon or skim milk in your beverages.
Don't forget to reward yourself for making positive changes in your diet and
exercise program, but not with edible goodies. Instead, why not treat yourself
to a facial or a manicure or a trip to the movies. Or maybe even a new pair of
shoes you have been eying for the past month.
Have a great day!
