There was a list of suggestions in this newsletter, some good, some DUMB. Here was the one that I thought was super dumb and I can't do.
Find healthy versions of your favorite guilty pleasures. Stock your kitchen with those instead.
Fight back: Craving ice cream? A creamy low-fat yogurt could hit the spot. Want the crunch of chips? Try snacking on fresh red peppers, sliced jicama, or baked kale chips (they're easy to make, and astonishingly tasty).
Pay attention to portion size. You don't need to eat heaping helpings.
Fight back: If you absolutely must have ice cream, grab a teacup instead of a bowl. You'll get the taste you crave, but in a much smaller serving.
I was literally laughing out loud. NO ONE in their RIGHT MIND that wants chips will reach for JICAMA and say, wow. I'm satisfied. No one even knows what jicama IS for cripes sake!
I am all or nothing. I have to cut out dessert and chips entirely when I am dieting. I can't count out 12 chips and be happy. NO chips in the house when I'm trying to lose weight. NO ice cream. Weigh in days I maaaaay hit Handel's on the way home.
But that's between me and my Jeep.
