I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream For... Cool Whip?

With summer weather hitting hard I have a taste for ice cream. My fix? Frozen Cool Whip Free. 1/2 cup has only 60 calories and no fat. It's rich and creamy and totally kicks the craving! Just keep frozen like ice cream and serve with fresh fruit =)

We all have weak moments, when you're torn between a craving and your ultimate goal. I have learned to shush that little voice by reminding myself that my conscious self is in control of my actions. The little voice can scream for chocolate all it wants, but if I just refuse to get up and get chocolate, then it will eventually give up and learn not to scream like that again! Ignorance is bliss.
Start small: tell yourself if you can hold out for half an hour, then you can have the chocolate. Or if you can work out for just 10 minutes then you can stop. It's all mind over matter. Eventually you won't need to bargain; you'll be already doing the right things.
This works for me. There is a part of my brain that waits to tell me when I haven't met my chocolate requirement. It then SCREAMS "Eat chocolate now!" and that's when I take a super B's supplement or B 100's. It is safe and within the hour the screaming has stopped. Really!
