Nobody likes a buzzkill and we crush fudge blizzards once in a while too but here are 4 tips…
1. Focus On Your Food
Ever notice that when you plonk down to devour a bowl of ice cream you savor the first bite, black out and then seem to tune back into the final moments as you scrape the bowl looking for one last flavor hit? People are unaware as they eat, which leads to mindless consumption. Simply taking less of the sweet stuff and paying attention to each bite will still curb your craving and you won’t be looking at an empty pint of Ben & Jerry’s wondering what the hell happened.
Do you really want to consume less? Create an intentional barrier like chopsticks. It takes around 20 minutes to digest, so if you’re using that oversized spoon in your fruit loops by the time the cereal hits your belly you’ve polished off 3 bowls. Try using a smaller spoon, your opposite hand or all those leftover chopsticks in your top drawer from takeout.
3. When You Eat Out, Go Mexican Or Thai
Rice and beans or a green curry just won’t do as much damage as a burger and fries or that 7 meat Italian hero. Generally speaking, there’s minimal bread and clean ingredient lists in Vietnamese, Thai, Mexican or Indian. It’s easier to just change the country of origin than deciding to eat healthy at the Neapolitan Pizzeria.
