|My "Better" Chocolate Milk - only 42 calories|
Last month I spoke about how I've kept off 80 lbs, even 2 years later. I also gave 5 common sense tips that any like-minded person hoping to achieve the same results could follow.
With weight loss, the truth is:
1.If one is not "ready" to get healthy, all attempts will ultimately fail, and
2.Food cravings do lessen--but one needs to have a food substitute in place.
So, 2 years ago I was "ready" to get healthy, but I needed food substitutes to take the place of chocolate bars and frequent snacking. I started off with drinkable yogurts, but I found that they were too high in sugars. Later, I found that with unsweetened almond milk, I could control the sugar level, and decide what went into a smoothie.
One cup of unsweetened almond milk is only 30 calories. When I add to it 1/10th of a packet of hot chocolate powder, the drink becomes 42 calories only--and it also satisfies my craving for chocolate. Really, all I'm looking for is that little taste of chocolate, and I'm satisfied. It's also very tasty.
Did you know that Almond Breeze is now "cooler", with a new refrigerated product available in the same great flavours? New refrigerated offerings include Original (and Unsweetened Original), and Vanilla (and Unsweetened Vanilla). Almond Breeze beverages are available in both refrigerated and shelf stable sections at your local grocer.
What food or foods do you have a weakness for? Do you have any tips to stave off snack cravings?
