Avoid sweets
5yr
I was kind addict on sweet things and in the beginning to make the challenge easier I decided to buy and eat a lot of types of fruits such as watermelon and grapes. It helped a lot!
  • annefood Congrats @Giullia ! Fruit is my favorite substitution for sweets and added sugar!
8 glasses a day! I fill two 32oz. water bottles with filtered water the night before and I'm ready to drink them anywhere I go!

Mexican cuisine is a perfect way to pack in your veggies. We had veggie and bean quinoa salad, corn and squash empanadas, and tostadas!

Day 9/30: Eat 5 Servings of Fruits & Veggies Per Day Level IV Plus of course, homemade margaritas, which have very little added sugar :)
  • annefood Yes please! Yum! Also, love the margarita footnote 😂 Very true- real margaritas are so different than the nasty mixer stuff that's so common.
Yes, you can make your own soda :)

  • annefood Looks great, @Rachna!

  • DietID_TeamDietitians @garv my favorite combo was peach, lime, and mint. The lime gets pretty overpowering, so one slice is all you need.

  • humvee Thank you for this! Made the mistake of staying hungry today! Had no idea I'd be sabatoging myself in the hopes of losing weight!
  • garv Actually, Long gaps have the opposite effect . I've tried it all! 4-5 small meals work brilliantly & every once in a while include dessert too!
  • humvee Oh! Definitely going to go for 4 to 5 from now on. Thanks for the tip!

Maximising satisfaction (and not mindless eating) means choosing the food you really want to eat. Not just whatever's there 😊

  • annefood So true!
  • garv Indeed! Ironically even at most homes junk/ processed foods are generally stored in more accessible spots.
