Avoid unnecessary Sugar. Avoid Artificial Sweeteners. Avoid Sodas. Drink water and unsweetened tea and coffee. Instead of buying an iced latte, buy an iced black coffee and add just low fat or fat free milk or half and half or don't add any. If you like half and half or heavy creams for coffee, pasta sauces or gravy, try fat free half and half, extra creamy from Land O Lake. Eat any veggies and fruits that you can. Frozen, canned, whatever. Just do it! :-) Ooohhh...and skip white bread. Get one with lots of grains. Makes amazing sandwiches, toasted or cold. If you want a good meal but not a lot of fat and calories, make a TOASTED/panini sandwich (I use my George Foreman Grill). Toasting makes a big difference when it comes to having a good sandwich or a great sandwich for a meal! Add some pickles and roasted veggies on the side for some good sidekicks.
