6. Eat Chocolate For Breakfast: For those of you who have an insatiable sweet tooth and know that it has full potential to derail your diet, go ahead and get that craving out of the way in the morning. Giving into your craving (in a smart, mindful way) actually does a better job curbing them before they absolutely sabotage your plan. Now don’t take this advice out of context and crush a Snickers bar for breakfast. Instead, try any of these chocolate shakes, Reese’s Overnight Oats (230 calories), or enjoy our make-ahead Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Bars (183 calories).
7. Cook, Serve, Pack. After the dinner servings have been dished out, immediately pack up the rest for lunch throughout the week. Once clean up is finished and the leftovers are accounted for, you’ll be less likely to go back for seconds. Give yourself some time after dinner to realize that you’re actually full off of one good portion.
8. Warm Up Your Water. Chris Powell, Extreme Weight Loss Makeover Edition’s trainer, suggests drinking a glass of warm water before a meal in order to feel fuller quicker and help with weight loss.
