Secrets of Success

Think Before I Eat ...



Determine if my selection has a healthy nutritional valve or worth me eating. If I choose an unhealthy item - it must be small portions and eaten on a rare occasion.

In addition, I drink atleast 8 ounces of water and wait 15 minutes prior to consuming the item. This triggers a reaction the brain that will signal you are eating which allows one to consume less of the item. Thus satisfaction is reached prior to over consuming the item.

More Information:

Ask myself, What impact will the item have on my goals?
Is it worth me indulging in the item?
