In general- I eat fairly healthfully. I eat as low fat as possible, I incorporate as many veggies as I can per meal, and I try to combat sugar cravings by eating fruit throughout the day. But sometimes, I HAVE to have ice cream. I put it off as long as possible, sometimes even a couple of days… and if I still want it, I have it. But, I buy the smallest serving I can, and I eat as little as possible. When you do choose unhealthy foods, do you enjoy them? If you don’t then you probably weren’t really craving it. Less than 5 bites should satisfy a craving.
This week, I want you to listen to your body. You already KNOW it wants healthy food, but when you decide to go unhealthy, really take notice of how you feel during and after these meals. Sure the first few bites taste good, but after that you start to reject the over processed fat filled snack. The Pavlovian response may help you stay away from junk food in the future!
