I just can't seem to not eat them when I'm working! Tried carrots and celery. Tried fruit. Not the same as Veggie Straws. I think it's also partly the salt--I think I have a tendency to sweat out all my electrolytes, and my body will often crave salt.
Veggie Straws are usually not a problem if I have been good with my eating for the day and leave some calories for them when I'm working at night. Or if I work earlier that day and snack on Veggie Straws, and then cut back on my dinner to accommodate.
But tonight I had not left calories and I ate my Veggie Straws anyway. My problem is my portion control. I admit it. I portion out my Veggie Straws to no avail, I just eat several portions anyway.
On the upside, I got a lot of work done, thanks to the Veggie Straws.
I think that I need to better plan for Veggie Straw consumption. Come to think of it, that has worked in the past a few times, where I will eat a smaller portion at dinner because I promise myself some Veggie Straws that night. Or I have a portion of Veggie Straws during the afternoon when I'm not so hungry, when it's easier for me to stop after one portion. (As opposed to nighttime when I turn into a rabid Veggie Straw-devouring monster.)
Okay, that'll be my plan of action. Either Veggie Straws during the afternoon (which I think is my best option since I have more self control then) or more Veggie-Straw-mindful eating at dinner. That seems a bit stupid, but let's see if it works.
