6/13/15 Katie's Healthy Eating Journal: Monday

by Katie (Jenny Craig 2009 Poster Girl) 13. June 2014 09:46

I have a friend who is just about to go on maintenance with Jenny Craig and is extremely fearful of going on her own.  This is completely natural because the grocery store can be overwhelming.  You have to read the nutritional labels on everything that you purchase.  If you go to my 2008 blogs I give you all the guidelines you should watch for regarding what's "good" and "bad" on the label.  FOLLOW THE SERVING SIZE.  Take the time to measure out your portions; don't be lazy.  I have a food scale, tablespoons, and measuring cups that I use religiously in my house.  Even my dressing is measured out each and every night.  It depends how dedicated you are to keeping the weight off.  If you do not take the time to following the serving sizes eventually you may find yourself slipping.  It's easy to take a little more and a little more of dressing, mashed potatoes, or whatever the food is... You worked hard to lose the weight don't reverse what you just did because you don't "feel like getting out the food scale."  I shop the most on maintenance in the organic section.  I think you can find a wider variety of food that is low calorie, fat, sodium, and sugar.  You won't always have to read every label in the store - eventually you'll get in the habit of buying a lot of the same foods/brands each week.  The occasional new item you may want to try is where you need to take the time to understand the label.  Good luck to my friend and remember:  if you have questions please ask me under the comment section of my blogs!
