Halloween is over and you are probably left with a heaping pile of junk food laying around somewhere.
It’s tempting to treat yourself to a helping here or a helping there.
If you want to lose weight the best way is to control your face – and what goes directly into it.
Getting a firm grasp on your diet is not easy. It is the hard part about being in shape.
A lot of people say “Oh – I can’t wait until I hit my goal weight and then I can cheat on my diet” – but the truth is everything counts. You ALWAYS have to work off what you put into your mouth – EVEN when you’re already fit.
Read this post to arm yourself with the right diet tools to avoid the temptation of junk food and stick to it!
1. LOOK AWAY FROM THE JUNK FOOD.
Yes… If you see any junk foods being offered: Look the other way. If the concierge offers you treats in a bowl or the neighbour stops by with homemade Halloween cupcakes you better shut the door.
If you see treats – avert your gaze and ignore the urge to graze.
2. THROW OUT THE JUNK FOOD IN THE GARBAGE CAN. DO IT NOW.
Muffins, cakes, chips, popcorn, candy corn and more.
Toss it, tie it and take it immediately out the door.
All of it. There is no point in saving it. Remove the excess treats or soon you’ll be craving it.
3. SUBSTITUTE HEALTHY FOODS FOR UNHEALTHY FOODS
Make a point of it to have a solid backup plan.
Stock your kitchen with as much and as many as you can:
fruits, veggies, lean meats & high protein food choices.
Learn to pick quality over sugary and ignore tempting voices.
4. EVERYTHING ADDS UP
If you tell yourself it’s ok to cheat once today, once tomorrow and then again this weekend;
this vicious cycle is detrimental and it’s one you can mend.
Small treats here and there slow but sure add up in your days,
& if you want to see your six pack abs please change your diet ways.
If obtaining 6 pack abs is not enough motivation to put down the candy bar – maybe this will help:
