Breakfast – The most important meal of the day. It jump starts your metabolism.
5 smaller meals – Take snacks to munch on throughout the day to keep your energy up and curb cravings for junk food.
- Cheese sticks
- Cut-up veggies (prepare several days worth at a time)
- Raw nuts or home-made trail mix
- Protein bars
Increase water – Hunger pangs can indicate a need for water. Have a glass of water before you give in to snacking. Many times this can be just what your body needs.
Allow cheat times – Letting yourself cheat one day a week for less than one hour can help keep you from going on a binge and can keep you from quitting your program.
