Really having a difficult time with wanting to eat too much- Primarily when I have gone out to eat. I try to balance healthy eating with something I really want. As I am reading this I realized that fatty food like something fried is another trigger for me that sets off cravings for something sweet and rich as well.
Last night I had fried fish- which was the treat with healthy sides. I ate it slowly to enjoy it but later that night I was craving chocolate and salty stuff. I gave in with lowfat /low sugar pudding and special K crackers but it was too much with all the calories from the fish. Last week the same thing happened when I ate grilled cheese at Friendlys.
I am realizing that it takes almost nothing to get those cravings active again.
Sometime this weekend we are supposed to go out to breakfast with my brother and niece before they leave for Alaska. The place we are going is famous around here for yummy homemade diner type food. Any suggestions for what to eat? I will try to go heavy on protein with no homefries and ask for my toast dry? I"d really rather not go at all....
