My plan to control myself around foods that call my name

Sunday, February 10, 2013

1. Don't keep ___ (the food that I will not name) in the house. Only enjoy it at a restaurant where the portion is controlled.

2. Only eat one bite of ____ (the food that I will not name) after eating a meal and I am not hungry.

3. Eating slowly and mindfully. Really savoring it. Putting down my fork between bites. Drinking water with the meal.

4. Pre-planning it and working in the rest of my nutrients, so there is nutritional balance.

5. Become conscious of event associations that trigger eating. Ex. Eat a ___ at a baseball game or eat ___ at the movies. I will make a new association to drink water at these events.

Check out the source for some of these ideas for further reading:

    emoticon What a great blog - LOVED it! I've got a few of my own "__________ foods that I will not name" and you've given me an idea for how to quiet their shouting. Thanks for the inspiration...again!
