Do you drink coffee?
If you do decided to drink coffee, here are some smart decisions you can make to stay slim. Try drinking coffee the old-fashioned way. Add just a small splash of non-fat milk and a dash of sugar.
Most of the fancy, store-bought coffee drinks contain calorie rich ingredients like whole milk, whipped cream, and/or chocolate. Skipping these extra additives can significantly reduce calories consumed.
Here are some examples from Starbucks, these are all grande size, if milk is added it is 2%
Starbucks Bold Pick of the Day: calories 5
Starbucks Iced Coffee with Milk: calories 120
Starbucks Caffe Mocha: calories 330
Starbucks Dark Cherry Mocha: calories 400
Remember, Stop Dieting and Live is about life style changes. Make small changes and keep them forever. Changing your morning coffee is just one example, try it out, see if it makes a difference.
Best of luck!
This week was my spring cleaning. Yep, I finally got the courage to clean out the refrigerator. I had bad tomatoes, soft apples and an old avocado in the two bins below. Isn’t it funny how food hides away down there.
While I was working I realized something, there could be a way to organize food for better health and weight loss. This started a fun process of organizing the refrigerator
I emptied the fridge and put everything fattening and unhealthy in the bottom bins. I moved the stuff the spoils quickly to the top, this included the vegetables, fruits, milk, and yogurt.
Now every time I open the fridge, rather then being tempted by sweets, I see healthy, nutrition items. Try it for yourself, you’ll feel better, and who knows, it might even save you some money.
It’s a great time for family, friends and fresh starts. At Stop Dieting and Live we want to wish everyone a wonderful holiday season.
To celebrate this season of new beginnings we are giving a special discount on the Stop Dieting and Live package.

General Mills is planning on dropping the sugar in some of its main cereal products like Lucky Charms, and Cocoa puffs. They are doing this because enough people have complained. They plan to make changes to their advertised cereal products. This is a great move by General Mills, its something that should have been done a long time ago.
If they are going to market these foods to our kids, they had better be marketing something healthy. A study published by the Rudd Center recently found that the least-healthy breakfast cereals are the most frequently and aggressively marketed directly to children.
I believe that changes like this are taking place because people are starting to wake up and do something about it. We can’t be afraid to recognize obesity as a real problem and challenge it head-on.
