    Your tip for getting rid of the tempting food in the kitchen is what works for me…if it’s not in the house, I’m not one to run to the store to satisfy a craving. If you feel guilty about getting rid of perfectly good food, offer it to friends or co-workers. The other tip I’d share, is to keep a stocked fridge full of healthy foods…fresh kale and spinach to whip up smoothies, nut butter (I found a coconut peanut butter at Home Goods that is a game changer and in a smoothie…SO good!), Persian cucumbers (for the crunch factor), brown rice cakes (topped with the coconut PB), sparkling water (I stopped drinking sodas of any kind almost 3 years ago but I missed the carbonation so now I buy a flat of Lime Sparkling Water from TJ’s every few weeks). The biggest difficulty I have, when trying to stay on track, is eating foods with the crunch factor…foods that aren’t high in carbs (which I’ve identified are what causes me to instantly gain weight). Great post and I look forward to reading other comments.

    Drink lots of water! Add lemon or other natural flavorings if it helps (herbs, cucumber, strawberries, etc,)
