With Halloween coming up, I wanted to avoid the temptation of a bowl full of delicious chocolate staring me in the face all night so I decided to buy candy I don't like. For instance, I hate coconut, nothing, not even smothering it in chocolate would get me to eat it, so naturally Mounds or Almond Joy would be a perfect choice for Halloween treats this year.
This concept also works if someone in the house has a sweet tooth. My husband bought a dessert (with coconut in it) and it sat in the fridge for almost two weeks. No temptation at all!

I bought an electric teapot to keep at my desk at work. I keep my favorite herbal teas at my desk and that way I am not tempted to go down to the coffee room and get a cuppa. I am addicted to flavored creamers, so if I have the coffee, I always want the creamer. This way, I eliminate the temptation to drink empty calories and kick the coffee habit.469
At work I use to go out to eat even when I brought my lunch. Well, we as a group made a decision to start eating healthier so we eliminate the temptation by all of us agreeing to bring our lunch to work. 4
