    I enjoy reading your tips. I have given up sugar for the month of January so I can see how I feel without it. By the end of the year, I just felt like I needed an oil change…you know, how the old oil looks all gunky and then you get the new slick oil?…that’s what I’m going for. I didn’t list it as part of my “drop in the bucket” list, though, because I don’t know that I want to commit to it for the whole year. I’ll see what I feel like by the end of January, though.

    I take smaller portions and always leave a bite or two on my plate. I love the idea of using smaller plates. Will try that and see how it works. I also eat apple slices spread with a little peanut butter for snacks and sometimes for my meal. English walnuts are also high on my list. I try to use them whenever I can. Fruit smoothies with fresh frozen fruit and yogurt are a good substitute for ice cream. I have also been a vegetarian for 30 years which has made me very conscious of everything I eat.. . .

    Good tips! I pretty much follow the same as you do but through the holidays I tend to get a bit comfortable to all the food! So I like these as a gentle reminder to get back on track!!

    Great tips for everyone. I keep a little snack bag of 13 almonds in my purse if I get hungry while out in the afternoon. They don’t mess up your fingers and are a healthy treat.

    A very helpful post, particularly for this time of the year. I don’t believe in diets but I do try to incorporate little steps, such as those you’ve listed, that help me to steer a better path.

    What am i trying to do to keep healthy in 2012….I call it the Gluttonous Diet. Tempered indulgences, if that’s possible. 😉

    Best is #3. I still remember my first trip form the US to Europe. Portions at restaurants were much smaller – as such – no doggy bags!

    A few great tips here! I get to start back of them today. My new year didn’t start out too well as far as eating right because of a week long workshop with no control on the food or snacks. You could guess what the snack were – Christmas cookies! :) So hopefully once I get home, my healthy eating habits will return. Can’t wait to actually get some vegetables on my plate! Happy New Year!

    Snacks is where the healthy eating gets me. I don’t buy snack food, but then I get tired of preparing food, so I usually end up staying hungry :-). Okay for weight loss goals, but not a good healthy habit. Thanks for the ideas! Gotta keep them in mind. Hummus is a good one.
    Thanks for linking up at Healthy 2Day Wednesday :-)
