Find healthy foods you love to eat so you don't miss the bad stuff.. I keep snacks in my desk at work and am never tempted to go to the vending machine. Healthy meals (stir-fries or a treat like salad & soup from Panera) help me get back/stay on track, too.
I won't lie, I love sweets. Moderation is key for me!! The old me would have eaten 10 cookies at a time, now I have 1 after dinner maybe 1 or 2 days a week IF I really feel like I want one and I am satisfied. I don't deprive myself. This keeps me from over-indulging.
ever since i started at sparkpeople, i made the decision to enjoy more fruits and vegetables. i now enjoy a variety of fruits and vegetables every day. they help me to feel full while i get to enjoy a variety of tasty food!
I was feeling lethargic today and remembered that a few of the kids at school I work had the gastro bug and sure enough, went to the doctor and he told me to eat nothing else but plain rice and so I made some and that is all I am having for dinner. It really is working.
