With amount of fast food readily available and work place vending machines, it can become a very hard task to keep your diet in check. Here are some tips and tricks I’ve found useful in my own life to help keep my own diet on the right path.
- The Sweet Tooth
Sweets are my version of Kryptonite. I always found gum a very big help. There are 0 carb gums with varieties of flavors to suit your needs.
Crystal light type drinks have 0 carbs. Most of them anyway. If I’m hydrating throughout the day I may as well throw in some crystal light to help curve my cravings.
Fruits. A very good choice in moderation if your strict like me. Naturally sweet, and can help. Not the most effective craving supressant, but that’s my opinion.
- Fried Food
I love the crunch to a good chicken wing or fish fillet. They are hard to replace because no one wants to chew fried chicken gum. But there are barbaque and hot wing sauces with no carbs. I simply grill or back the wings and soak them in the sauce. And as for chips or fries, I am always eating pork rinds. They are fried, but the fat supplements for the lack of carbs.
Bottom line, don’t put yourself into situations where you’re teasing yourself by being around it.
The main thing you should gather from this is that all your cravings habits need to be replaced with another. A healthier, more wholesome version that will benefit your body and diet. Your self control is at test, be sure to over come it. Because there is no better feeling than knowing you can do it.
