Make A Deal With That Little Emotional Eater In You!


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Make a deal with the emotional eating monster that resides in the back of your mind! Whenever you are fighting it calm down work through the emotion and then make a deal that you have to do an extra workout or clean the whole house before you can have that craving. Don't sell yourself short though!

Think of the monster in you as a little child. If they have to do something they don't like to do to get what they want they are less discouraged to want it. Just make sure the deal doesn't leave you hanging and keep what you eat in check. Limit it to the portion size recommended or less.

    emoticon Idea , provided we are able to correctly know the calories taken extra vis-a -vis amount of exercise needed to burn the extra calories. Usually we take a lenient view and overestimate calories burnt ,but underestimate calories ingested.
