Plain M&M's are one of my favorite treats. A serving every now and then won't hurt anything unless you use it as an excuse to binge. Even then, mistakes happen and as long as it's not regular enough to obliterate your deficit, you'll still lose weight.

I can relate. I'm like a chocoholic but for booze. Do it once in awhile, fit it in your range, profit!

If you're only having "a few"... what's the big deal? Just fit it in your calorie range. I'm not a huge fan of M&Ms but they're great because they're easy to make last as opposed to devouring a whole chocolate bar. You can suck on one at a time and eat them slowly. The snack-size ones are great, only 50 cals if I remember correctly. As long as they don't cause you to overeat or crave sweets, I really don't see how it's anything to feel guilty over.

"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. It doesn't happen, what does happen is you get results. Lifting Barbie weights does nothing but waste time.

I agree, nothing works the same for everyone. You have to know your trigger foods and if 1 will be enough, or if you will go in for the "kill." If you can control yourself, schedule it for 1 day, otherwise avoid it like the plague - ice cream is my downfall.

yep, you have to find what works for you. my "trigger food" is ice cream. if I start, I find it very hard to stop. I "hate" the people that can have ONE skinny cow ice cream sandwich a day and save the rest. I eat the whole box in 24 hours.

but if you can fit the M&Ms into your plan in moderation, then go for it. even a few every day isn't bad if its part of your plan and doesn't "trigger" you into going off plan.

as for me and my ice cream.....I allow myself to go out for ice cream about once a month, but it is NOT allowed in my house.

All the so called "secrets of success"will not work ... unless you do.

You may find that if you schedule a serving of M&M's on Friday, that you won't feel deprived, because it will cause you to overeat the entire weekend.

Moderation only works if you can stick to that ONE serving. Statements like " I have to let myself have a few! ", aren't very encouraging as far as your ability to control how many you eat.

I would monitor this very carefully. If you stop losing, or can't stick to what you planned, I would avoid the M&M's ( the "death" of your diet ). You may have to cut sugar to cut cravings. If you can maintain 1 serving a week, enjoy.

I agree with PP. If you schedule some M&Ms in your diet you won't feel so deprived.

I LOVE M&M's... just the plain milk chocolate M&M's but they are such a killer to my diet! Sometimes I have to let myself have a few! Oopsy Daisy!
