**If cooking boneless, skinless chicken breast make extra for lunches or consider getting a rotisserie chicken from your local grocery store (just remove the skin before eating).
**The fruit listed can be any fruit that is in season. Freeze it and blend it with for a frozen treat.
**Stick to drinking water and green tea. Add lemon for a little flavor. If you are having coffee watch out for the calories in creamer and sweetener.
**If you do have an alcoholic beverage drink in moderation. Too much alcohol leads to late night binges and visits to fast food restaurants.
