I got this little tip from one of my new favorite stores ~
Ever catch yourself thinking more about the food you shouldn't have, rather than the food that'll make you feel better in the long run? Sometimes focusing on something you shouldn't do, makes you want to do it that much more! Here are a few tips to help you stay focused on eating healthy, and balanced. This way, you won't find yourself ravenous mid-afternoon, ordering that pizza before you can stop yourself!
Eat 5 times a day (3 meals, 2 snacks)
Pack snacks each night for the next day
(nuts, vegetables with hummus, rice cakes)
Have meals with protein, carbs and healthy fats
Keep a food journal!
I don't know if their tips will help you, but it's something to think about.
Personally, I'm finding, since I've started really looking at my diet and cleaning it up, that I'm thinking WAAAAYYYY to much about food. I'm thinking about what I can't have, instead of thinking about the healthy choices I'm making and how good I feel.
That's it ~ I'm switching my thinking!
I feel healthy....I feel good....Yeah!!
How about you....Are you thinking about what you can't have?
