Secrets of Success

3 Bites Or Less



I don't deprive myself of the things I really want to eat. If out to dinner and I would like dessert I just have 3 small bites or less. This way I have satisfied my craving without sabotaging all of my hard work of exercising and eating right.

  • That's a great tip. Thanks!!! emoticon - by JANIEWWJD
  • For the first year on Spark I avoided all deserts, all sugar, all treats as much as I could with great success. Though I am not at goal and travel a lot, I only loosened up on that point in the last month. The three bite rule is my guideline, or two bite French girl secret. I have not been able to weigh myself on this trip ( over a month) but am hopeful that I am stable at least. This is a very good guideline for me, and thanks for reminding me that this 'rule' works for others on Spark. - by GGRSPARK
  • Great tip emoticon - by GOANNA2
  • I guess the secret to that is "small bites"! I'm sure when dining out I could find someone at the table who would be a willing recipient of whatever is left after my 3 bites. Good tip. - by MARYELLEN301
  • Sounds like a good idea! I quit smoking and everything seems to be going haywire right now. Does that make sense?? - by WATERBUGETTE
