I have always said, and still believe, that the best way that I know to make you small meals is to simply divide up what you would normally eat in 3 larger meals into smaller meals so you are not eating 6 huge meals per day. Of course if you are overeating your 3 meals you may need to lessen the amount first before you decide how to divide them up into smaller meals.
Because I am eating more frequently during the days, there is really no need for the extra snacks during the day but like everyone else in the world, some days I just seem to crave more. I have found that if I can keep my mind busy during these cravings they pass. How I keep my mind busy? Well the best way is to exercise. If I can say, “hmmm, feeling like I want something extra, I need to run up and down the stairs 15 times.” This really does help me forget I want to eat.
I am good at this about 40-50% of the time and I need to be good at is 100% of the time. Since it is Monday my goal for this week is to be good at this 100% of the time.
When I get hungry for extra food, I will either run the stairs, do some push-ups, jump up and down on the floor 100 times or put the radio on and dance with the kids for a few minutes.
Keeping my mind busy should result in faster weight loss!
