    Only manage to read the first page today but loved it. Maybe i'll trickle through this gradually - especially when feeling down.

    Some ways to take control of your well-being include:
    • Take an active, rather than passive, approach to solving problems. Don’t expect others to provide solutions or simply wait, hoping the problem will go away on its own.
    • Manage your environment. Surround yourself with people and activities that support a healthy mindset and body.
    • Engage in healthy daily habits, like balanced eating and getting enough sleep.
    • Notice when you are stuck in negative thoughts or when your body is tired, tense or run down. Once you begin to notice these times, you can determine how to manage them.
    There are many ways to take control of your well-being. Although there are circumstances and events which you are powerless to change, you can change how you respond to them and how you take care of yourself during difficult times.

    15 hints to help you stick to a healthy diet-
    1. Have realistic expectations. Having realistic expectations increases your chances of maintaining healthy lifestyle behaviours.
    2. Think of what really motivates you. When you're tempted to indulge in unhealthy behaviours, remembering what motivates you can help you stay on track.
    3. Don't have unhealthy foods in your house. Keeping unhealthy foods out of the house, or at least out of sight, can increase your chances of staying on track.
    4. Don't have an all or nothing approach. Rejecting the urge to judge your day as "good" or "bad" can prevent you from overeating and making poor choices.
    5. Carry healthy snacks with you. Having healthy high-protein snacks, like raw, unsalted almonds or jerky, on hand can help keep your appetite in check until you're able to have a full meal.
    6. Incorporate some exercise. Simultaneously changing the way you eat and exercise increases your chances of healthy lifestyle success.
    7. Have a plan before you eat out. Look online at menus so that you are not overwhelmed when you get there.
    8. Don't let travelling derail you. Like no 7- do some research. Ring ahead or look online to see what's available & always have some healthy snacks with you.
    9. Eat mindfully. Always sit down. Take your time & eat slowly & enjoy each morsel. Put your cutlery down from time to time. Eating mindfully can help you develop a better relationship with food.
    10. Track & monitor your progress. A pedometer, with hourly reminders, can be an excellent incentive. There are many good apps that you can sync with your pedometer. Tracking your food intake and exercise can provide motivation and accountability. Studies show that it helps you stick to a healthy diet and leads to greater weight loss.
    11. Get your partner or a friend to join you. Having someone join you in making healthy lifestyle changes can increase your chances of success.
    12. Start your day with a high-protein breakfast. If your first meal is well balanced and contains adequate protein, you're more likely to maintain stable blood sugar levels and not overeat for the rest of the day. Eating a high-protein breakfast helps you stay full and can prevent overeating later in the day.
    13. Realise it takes time to make new habits. Rome wasn't built in a day. :) Don't be discouraged if it takes longer than you expect to adapt to your new healthy way of living. Do your best to stay motivated and focused while you adapt to a healthy lifestyle. It takes about 60 days to make a new habit, on average.
    14. Figure out what works best for you.
    There is no perfect way of eating that works for everyone. It's important that you find a way of eating and exercising that you enjoy, find sustainable and can stick to for the rest of your life. The best diet for YOU is the one you can stick to in the long run.
    15. Teach yourself the difference between hunger (that empty feeling in your stomach when you haven’t eaten for a few hours) and craving or the desire to eat (which you will feel in your mouth or throat). Ultimately, you want to just label what you’re feeling (hunger, craving, tiredness, boredom, or a negative emotion) and tolerate it without eating. In the short-run, have a list of powerful distractions to turn your attention away from food.
    A new member in the forum (thank you Sybil) suggested H.A.L.T. as something easy to remember.
    H. Hunger?
    A. Angry/Anxious?
    L. Lonely?
    T. Tired?
