Last week, we talked about packing your lunch to help you have that packed & ready to go and you’re not lingering around the kitchen or pantry.
This will (hopefully) help you avoid eating a ton of extra calories by making extra trips to the pantry for second (and 3rd and 4th) helpings.
Easy things like putting a “handful” of chips on your plate instead of taking & eating out the bag.
Maybe something less common options…
First off, you should be definitely having some sort of protein with your meal. Chicken, ground beef, steak, pork, eggs, even lean lunch meat are great options.
What if you made a goal of eating your entire piece of protein before you ate anything else?
The protein is going to make you chew A LOT to break it down. It will take time! Protein is also super filling.
It will help you feel fuller, so you are less likely to over consume on the “junk” food especially the carbs!
Give it a try. Eat all of your protein first. Then, everything else!
Have a GREAT TUESDAY!!!
