Dieting tips/tricks to avoid burning out.

I know one of the biggest problems I had was following a plan, because I'd get so tired of chicken, tuna and veggies. I've picked up a few tricks, and I know Raven and some others have as well. I thought I'd share my favorite ones, and hopefully learn some new ones I can use, as well.

I eat lots of brown rice, which gets old REAL fast. To add flavor, right before all the moisture is soaked up, I'll add just a small dash of hot sauce (Cholula, Tabasco, Texas Pete's, not salsa) or lite soy sauce ( low sodium) depending on what I'm eating it with. Adding it while it's still cooking lets you use less while more evenly spreading the flavor.

I don't fully cook my broccoli, to me it has more flavor and better texture if it's still a little crisp.

If you bake or grill a batch of chicken breasts at one time, it's easier to prep meals over the course of several days. Throw them in individual baggies with different spices, and it cuts down on the monotony of chicken every day. Cayenne pepper and Mrs. Dash products are my favorites.

Canned tuna mixed with avocado, mashed up.

Brown a lb of lean ground turkey, you can quickly add it omlets, rice, and veggies to add protein.

I don't count calories closely, and I eat more carbs than I probably should, but it works for me as busy as I tend to stay. If you've got an awkward schedule then prepping things in advance can really keep you from cheating when you're hungry and in a hurry. If I want to cut, all I really change is my carb consumption.
