Healthy Inspiration from SparkPeople

Motivational Quote - Nothing tastes as good as healthy feels.

SparkPeople's Comments

The next time you want to "cheat" on your diet with a fattening treat, imagine how good your body and mind will feel after you've turned it down. It might taste good for a few minutes, but knowing you made the right choice will feel so much better in the long run.

This thought doesn't always work, but many a time it's helped me to avoid a less than healthful food choice.

Those sweets look really good but they will hurt you on the inside. Pass on the sweets and save your health. Learned this in my 40s. It catches up to a person.

Every Saturday my Husband buys a coffee cake. This is his breakfast before going golfing. After he takes a fair amount that darn coffee cake sits there and calls me all day. I resist it, not so easily, because I know how I'll feel if I eat it. It's not worth it. I'm feeling too good.

But once in a blue moon, YES! ENJOY. What blue moon would be is up to you, right?
You are the one who would benefit by being downfall is dim sum, not donuts right now....but I did have one two weeks ago.

That's the thing, isn't it?? When you want to cheat, you think, "But it makes me soooo happy to eat that!" but the truth is, while you may feel happy while eating it, you don't feel happy during the rest of the day. So I try to remind myself of this when I see those tasty donuts!

You know it. Those donuts look sooo good. but I know I can't have them and feel as good as I do.

Those gooey donuts tastes mighty good to me-- but they are BAD, and they are not worth it-!! Not worth it--- at all.

This is a great article. Very informative and helpful. I, personally, am not tempted by donuts, but if I want one, I will allocate it in my menu, while still eating 5 veggies and fruits in my diet!

I agree that food is supposed to taste good. I am a "foodie" and I love really good food.
I love sweets and I allow myself to eat them sometimes.
The key is remembering that 1 doughnut will always have less calories 2 doughnuts!
