You know what I'm talking about...
...the food you love to hate...and hate to love.
That one food that...
...if ONLY you could stop eating it...
...you'd lose weight.
...we all have to deal with these totally tempting weight loss terrorists! Including me. And I'm a nutrition professional.
A "diet buster" is usually the first food you decide you have to "give up" when "going on a diet." And while avoiding that food for awhile is certainly possible, usually it doesn't work. Why?
Because let's face it: that calorie culprit just happens to be your favorite food! Inevitably you miss it, you crave it, and then, when you finally give in, inevitably you overeat it.
A better approach?
Learn to live WITH the foods you love, not WITHOUT.
Instead of making any food "strictly off limits," I suggest making "rules" concerning it.
The rules must define:
My personal ice cream rules:
This is ONE way to manage YOUR diet buster...
Now tell everyone about that delicious food that you can't resist, that one yummy item that always gets the best of you. By talking about it (in scrumptious detail), you might find yourself better able to think about it and deal with it. Give it a try!
