To get on the right track it is important to eliminate sugar & processed foods for about a week. The 1st few days are hard but, well worth it! After that, here are some tips: 1) drink 2 glasses of H2o & have an ounce of nuts for a snack. 2) Take a power nap. Sleep deprivation causes carb cravings! 3)Plan ahead! Prepare premeasured snacks for the next day like a small, fat free yogurt with fruit so u are not tempted by chips/cookies. Personal power goes a long way in this journey. Plan ahead!4
Stress is a HUGE trigger! Harnessing your personal power means planning for this and knowing what u can do to cope. Planning ahead will keep u on track. Cravings are strong but, short lived. Each time u make the right choice is victory!
