Kick Start Your Fat Loss – Tip 30
Keep it out of your house! If you aren’t supposed to eat it, don’t buy it. Your willpower probably isn’t that good, mine isn’t. I love peanut M&M’s, if they are in the house I will eat them. The small packets – 2 or three of them at one sitting, a big bag, boom ½ gone in 5 minutes!
The easiest way to stay away from sweets, snacks and other junk food is to not have tem around. This can be easier said than done if you have kids, but really, do your kids need to eat junk food? No, of course not.
So do yourself, and your kids a favor, and don’t buy chips, sodas, cookies and other junk food. Instead buy fresh fruits and veggies, hummus, nuts etc. and stay healthy. You’ll find yourself dropping fat faster and it will stay off.
Ok, so every once in a while it’s ok to indulge in your favorite ice cream or candy bar, but limit how much of it you eat and keep it to at most once every 2 weeks, once a month is better.
During the holidays this can become very difficult, but again don’t bake it or buy it or only make or purchase the smallest amount your can. Another option is freeze the leftovers, this will reduce your snacking because you’ll have to deliberately take it out of the freezer and let it thaw or stick it in the microwave. You also tend to forget about it – out of site, out of mind. You’ll run across it when you clean out the freezer and throw it away!
