I knew I had to figure this critical piece out for myself. Without having something sweet to eat that was also satisfying and healthy, I would not be able to sustain a healthy eating program. White knuckling only worked a few days for me.
I did a ton of experimenting on this. I wanted to be consistent no matter what was happening and where I was. I tried and failed a million times. After a while though, I came up with some tricks that really helped me. I want to share these with you in the hopes that you can either use them or, tweak them a bit to suit your lifestyle.
Do you ever feel like you can start this new food program in the morning, but by the afternoon you feel your resolve fading? I get it! I feel like that too sometimes. There are those days when I just want to give up and do whatever I want.
I want to feel amazing. I want to feel amazing as much as I can. I want to have energy, and be positive. It took me years to figure out why I needed to eat this way and even more years after that to figure out what I needed to do to accomplish that.
