45. Make Your Own Meals
Because even the foods that promise they’re good for dieting are often packed with unhealthy preservatives, sometimes you just have to rely on yourself.
Although you might not be able to cook every meal yourself, do what you can.
Try making a fresh salad to take to lunch or make several meals in advance.
Meal planning also helps hold you accountable where your diet is concerned, plus you’re far less tempted by those unhealthy impulse buys at the grocery store.
Choose fresh, natural ingredients whenever possible and go organic when you can.
