I've seen too many secrets of success telling you to cut things out "no sweet drinks" "nix the butter" "never eat anything fried"
These are all what I call NEGATIVE REINFORCEMENTS.
Why would I WANT to diet if it means I have to compeltely QUIT something I love?
Its the basic forbidden fruit/over indulgence fact of life. We want what we can't have, and once we break down and taste the forbidden fruit, we can't stop.
Have a strictly vegetarian day, and reward yourself with something like fried chicken the next day.The idea is, eat ONE piece of fried chicken as a reward, it will keep you from HATING the diet. It makes fried chicken something to look forward too instead of longing for and regretting later!
