Avoiding The Munchies


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

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.

We need steady energy levels to have willpower.

    I went out for a special meal and used your advice. It totally worked for me. I treated it like any other meal and I was able to avoid over eating . Thanks
