A Treat A Day Keeps My Extra Pounds Away


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I work a small treat into my meal plan each day to avoid the temptation of overindulging. I try to get something single-serving, like a small chocolate truffle. I only get single-servings so I won't accidentally "eat the whole bag" and this trick works for me because after the chocolate I tell myself I don't need more because I'll have some tomorrow, too!

The benefit is I don't feel like overindulging because I know I will always have a daily treat to look forward to.

    I love the chocolate chip idea, will have to try that one too! =)

    Sometimes I'll let myself have 15 chocolate chips. It helps with my need for chocolate and doesn't have that many calories. emoticon
