One of the assignments for the countdown to the 5% Challenge is to list your trigger foods. I could make a list, but it would be way too lengthy. My trigger foods are mostly snack foods. They can be sweet and/or salty. Most of them are room temperature. This week I've struggled with an open bag of pretzels and m&m's. They were for a Valentine's present, but my husband opened them early. I know I shouldn't have even brought them into the house, but it's too late now.
Trigger foods are usually a problem for me after supper at night. I can usually avoid temptation at work... even if it is Chicken Tender day, but when I'm home the problem rears its head. Like Cody says I just need to not buy the food. So that is the first thing I'm going to do to avoid them. Just not even pick them up in the store which involves not shopping hungry. Then I try to drink a full glass of water and wait a while. If I'm still actually hungry I'll portion out a half serving and record it.
What do you do about trigger foods?
