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!
