Healthy Snacks

*Low-Cal Chocolate Dip- Take “diet” hot chocolate mix and pour it into a bowl. Add a little warm water, stirring it and adding more water to the consistency of dip. This “chocolate dip” is perfect for dipping fruit into. Make it like a party .

* Jello with Whipped Cream on Top -This is a great low-carb/low cal dessert. Buy the 10 calorie individual Jellos in the grocer’s cooler and Redi-Whip no calorie whipped topping.

* Celery with Peanut Butter- Better than reaching for a donut or a cookie, spreading a little low-fat peanut butter on som celery is a good nutritional snack.

* Almonds or other healthy nuts

Eat Healthy

We do not advocate “crash diets.” They rarely last. The only way to lose weight and keep it off is eat healthy over a long period of time. If you want to lose weight, be sure to increase your physical activity. Start some sort of work-out or exercise plan, even if it is just walking.

Counting Calories: That’s how B.J.Rains lost 40 pounds. He started with the “Lose It” app.and increased his physical activity. He can now run a marathon.

Low Carb Lifestyle: This is how Rob Rains lost 40 pounds during the year 2013. The simple way to say it is you basically cut out bread, sugars, fried foods,and look on the labels for zero or very low carb content. This does help lose weight and you can gradually add food you want, but it is a lifestyle. If you suddenly go off it you will gain weight. Rob started with two weeks of "no carbs", then eased into a "low carb lifestyle." Once or twice a week he will eat pizza or pasta at a meal but then he tries to stay faithful.

Ain't No Stoppin' You

If there is something that is holding you back from gaining control of your health, don't let it. You think you love to eat, well you will love the way you feel if you eat the right things. Don't keep waiting, don't put it is the time and you are the person. You can do this. Once you put your mind to it...there' "Ain't no stopping you now!"
