Hi! Just a shout out to let you know that I am still with you!
I am going on 4 months since I stopped eating Fast Food.
The addiction is gone but the temptation to over eat is the battle ground now.
I am finding that if I deny myself something that I am craving, like french fries, I tend to eat anything and everything to satisfy my craving until I give in and eat it any way.
Tip: Substitute a greasy french fries and/or potato chips for a healthier small baked sweet potato or this great Sweet Potato French Fries recipe submitted by SparkPeople user NEWLIFE1974.
1 Serving = 122 calories; 5 g fat
Ingredients 1 large sweet potato, peeled and cut into wedges 2 teaspoons canola oil 1/4 teaspoon salt Pinch of cayenne pepper
Directions Preheat oven to 450°F. Toss sweet potato wedges with oil, salt and pepper. Spread the wedges out on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake until browned and tender, turning once, about 20 minutes total.
