How do i start to control myself with food. when something goes wrong instead of walking away .. i eat it. which probably won't help me much.. i am trying to get rid of sweets out my life. i made it 2 days and ended up having a twix yesterday .. now that i had a sweet , i have already had 2 sweets this morning.. I just need to stop.. and i need some ideas on how to help. which doesn't help that i get tense and if i don't watch it i explode on my family.. which isn't good.
I am a huge sweet eater! I'd eat sweets all day long. Now, if I want sweets, I eat a Clementine orange, or an apple. Sweet fruit. You just have to make up your mind and do it. I would get so aggravated at myself for giving in. But, once you get in that routine, it won't be so hard. Take it one day at a time!!!! You can do it.
the hardest part is i am an emotional eater.. I love to eat bread. I can do great at work. Nothing this there. But at work . we work in a house. and in laws live up stairs. the bread cupboard is the first thing i see when i walk up stairs. and she makes these sweets sometimes. omg !! i have had 2.
I really only need to go up there to make my lunch ..So maybe i can train my self to work more and only go up when i need to eat??!! I will give your 2 comments above me a try!
I'm a sweet addict I tacked on an hour a day before I eat sweets for example,
If I at a sweet at 10am yesterday I will wait til 11am until the want of it disappeared.
Now every once in a while if I get a craving I drink some water and wait 15 min while I'm going about what I'm doing if I still want it I limit myself to 3 bites (even if it means I toss 1/2 a candy bar) and move on
Make a glass of chocolate milk--use reduced fat milk/almond, whatever, add 1 tbsp honey and one tbsp Hershey's unsweetened cocoa powder. Blend....you won't believe how good it tastes!
Have a couple pieces of dark chocolate
Find a fruit that will hit your sweet tooth the way candy does. For me, that is red delicious apples, strawberries, and super ripe bananas.
Make your own sweets...cookies made with protein powder...or oats (full of fiber). There are tons of Pinterest recipes. You can get your sweets fix, but have it be good for you, too:)
