2. Rehydrate with water. Unless you are exercising most of the day, water is all you need to adequately restore your body’s fluids. To add zing, flavor your water with a small amount of lemon or orange juice.

3. Drink a glass of water when you feel tired or hungry. Feelings of fatigue and hunger often mean your body is thirsty. A glass of water can boost your energy and eliminate hunger pains.
4. Eat regularly. If you allow yourself to get overly hungry, you’ll fall into the “see food, eat food” mode, grabbing whatever is in the refrigerator or cupboard. Small, frequent — and nutritious — meals help to manage hunger and prevent overeating.
5. Replace shortening with applesauce. When baking cakes, brownies or muffins, replace oil with equivalent amounts of applesauce. This enhances flavor, locks in moisture and reduces calories.
