Secrets of Success

Stave Off Cravings




Stave off junk food cravings by carrying hard candies in your pocket. Right now I'm using maple syrup candies because they are difficult to chew on (and 3 candies = 70 calories). Its also a great mind game - you can convince yourself you are still eating foods that "aren't allowed!"
