How To "Cheat"

This Sparked Me!

When you buy a bag of something for a "treat", remember that it is a "treat" and not a binge. Just buy a serving size bag. It satisfies the craving, but I don't get a chance to binge on a big bag. It may cost slightly more, but at least I know that I won't pay for it in calories.

MORE INFORMATION:
We all get cravings for foods that we know we shouldn't have. If you allow yourself that one serving of a craved food, it will be much better for you than trying to ignore it. Just make sure they don't happen to often.......

    When I was first diagnosed with diabetes, I gave up ALL chocolates. After doing alot of reading, I realized that it wasn't necessary to do that, so I made a once a month trip to See's Candies when I went to the mall and got a free sample....FREE, controlled portion, and YUM!

    You could say that it is cheaper all the way around!
