M&Ms

Wednesday, July 13, 2011

So, I have been doing really well. No real cravings. But occasionally I do get the munchies for some good old plain m&ms. A few days ago was one of those days. And as luck would have it, I was a little low on calories and fat. Wow, what are the chances of THAT happening? Anyway, I wanted some M&Ms! So I did some calculating. . . and here's what I came up with:
.25 oz = 9 M&Ms = 36 calories
.33 oz = 12 M&Ms = 47 calories
I opted for 9 M&Ms. I sucked on the first one until it was about gone and then ate the rest 1 at a time. By time they were gone, I was completely satisfied.

This might not seem like so much of an accomplishment, except that I used to munch a MUCH bigger serving in less time and usually wanted more! I count this as a success!!! And I haven't craved any since. I used to not be able to have M&Ms in the house without scarfing the whole delicious bag. Now I can enjoy a few and be good with it!

...baby steps.

    What YOU did is an accomplishment to be proud of. I know I too have found that eating (those craving foods) one at a time and very slowly helps me get through the craving and not really wanting any more and staying on track.............calorie wise.....Good job....keep it up! emoticon

    Excellent idea! I can easily down a bag of those, but by sucking on them, you can actually enjoy the taste of them and be satisfied without ruining your diet!

    I'd say that was amazing.... You thought about it. Made a good choice and enjoyed your treat!

    Most of all you stayed true to your intentions (an in control treat)
