1. Be prepared.
2. Have variety of power foods.
3. Allow myself to use points without guilt.
4. Continue being active.
5. Incorporate fruit and veggies into as many meals as possible.
6. Eat slower (to avoid overeating).
By following these keys, I find SF to be extremely successful for me. I love the fact that I do not need to measure and weigh and point the power foods I am eating. The flexibility I get with this program helps me to stay on track. I have also found it is pretty easy to stay on track in many different situations.
Below you will see My Day One on Simply Filling:
Breakfast: Two eggs (over easy) with a Light English muffin, cucumber, and watermelon!
Lunch: Two brown rice sushi rolls. Not everyone will consider this SF but all of the ingredients used are listed and all of them are considered power foods. I make sure to get rolls with brown rice and with ingredients that are SF power foods!
Dinner: Flank steak, oven fries, corn on the cob, edamame, and sauerkraut.
Here are some Meal Plan Ideas:
Day #1: ALL SIMPLY FILLING
B: Cheerios with skim milk and a banana
L: Grilled Chicken breast with brown rice and edamame
D: Lean Ground Beef Taco Salad
S: LF Yogurt, fruit
Day #2: ALL SIMPLY FILLING

L: Costco Turkey Burger over a salad with a yogurt
D: Flank steak with oven fries and roasted cauliflower

As you can see, some things will repeat each and every day (fruit/veggies). The best part about SF is once your meals are prepped you are all set and ready to go! It makes every day much easier. Again, if you have any questions, just ask! I hope I am able to help! :D
