Craving Something? Think Of The Consequences!

This Sparked Me!

When you are craving sweets or a salty snack. Ask yourself how you are going to feel afterwards physically and/or mentally. How will I be feeling in 30 minutes? Angry at myself, guilty, headache from crashing from the sugar rush????

It helps me make the best decision most of the time.

    I recently hurt myself badly and so someone brought me a meal. I thanked them and then threw it out. The plates had nothing but fats, creams, sugary foods and then then dessert was a syrupy sweet pudding with cookies. It didn't even look good to me. I thought of what it would do to my new lifestyle plan.
