Put Half Of It Away

This Sparked Me!

If you happen to order something that you wish you hadn't, such as a fattening burrito, cut it in half and put one of the halves in the fridge for the next day. That way you won't be tempted to eat the whole thing and you'll probably fill up with the smaller portion anyway.

    Very good suggestion. It is very difficult to put this away especially if you are loving it.

    This is a great idea! I usually throw the other half away becuase it's too tempting for me if I know the other half is still available.

    The trash works too! Or give half to your dog, your roommate, your husband, your wife, just don't eat the whole thing because you feel guilty for ordering it in the first place.

    I used to do this. I still do this when I go out to eat. A few years back I lived in a group home. I had no control over what they prepared to eat. My psychiatrist and the nutritionist at the hospital worked with me to where I got to the point to where I raked half of it into the trash since it wasn't worth saving for later.
