I drink almost an entire cup of hot water or tea with every two bites of sweet stuff. It melts the sticky feeling off my tongue and stops me from eating too much!

Instead of eating 2 tablespoons of peanut butter with my banana (which I hate) in the morning, I started melting just 1 *teaspoon* of peanut butter to make it go farther and dipping my banana in it. It will cut out around 1000 calories a week (every little bit counts!), and I still get the delicious peanut buttery taste to cover up the icky banana taste. IYAMHEALTHY.

I must be about 100 lbs. overweight, and recently I have begun to eat more fruits and vegetables. The exercise will come soon, as I need better weather to take my bicycle out. IYAM(on the path to being)HEALTHY.

I drink a green smoothie everyday. I make it with green tea, a handful of spinach, celery, tomato, broccoli, strawberries, kiwi, and an apple. It’s a great way to get in your daily veggies and fruit and it keeps you full! IYAMHEALTHY

To increase my fiber, I started mixing [uncooked] brown rice with a variety of dried beans. I soak of cup of the mix overnight and then pressure cook it. I use a 1/2 cup as a meal serving size, which is about 300-400 cals, 40-50g carbs, 10-15+g fiber, and 15-20+g protein. The slow carbs give me steady energy and the high fiber keeps me fuller longer, so I’m eating less. I like to saran wrap serving sizes and freeze it. They reheat quickly in the microwave for a quick meal. IYAMHEALTHY
