One day a week, usually saturday when I go places, I have a crap day. On this day I have a break off my diet and eat the junk food I cant have when I'm on my diet. Because of how driven I am toward losing weight, I'm at the point where chocolate and skittles don't seem very appetizing anymore, so instead i waste my calories for the day on going out to eat. This not only keeps you on your diet during the week but helps you lose weight due to the difference in calories.

When i go to the grocery store, I go after a meal so im not hungry. Also, i watch what i buy. If i dont buy junk food i wont eat junk food. simple. it also keeps my husband and son in check on what they are eating too. I also dont go down isles that would trigger any cravings, like the cookies, candy, ice cream, chips, etc.
When you decide to get back on track first realize that this is not a diet but a way of life. Treat your home and your body as a shrine. No junk in the house no junk in your system. Outside of your home you can reward yourself for treating your body and house with love and treat yourself to a decadent sweet or drink. Good habits start at home. You are the keeper, provider and teacher to others.43
If you have junk food in the house collect it in a box, give it to a shelter, or better yet throw it away/,
The way I eat the best and stay away from junk food is that I clean my fridge, freezers and cabinets out and throw away or give away the junk food. I restock my kitchen with healthy food and resolve to not let myself bring the enemy/junk food back into home. Out of site/out of house, out of mind!
