Secrets of Success

Avoiding The Munchies



I find that if I try to restrict my calories going into a non diet friendly meal (such as a celebration dinner or buffet) I tend to go way overboard because I get into reward mode. I do much better when I eat like normal throughout the day and treat the special meal just like any other meal. The same holds true if I've waited too long between meals, I overdo it.
