Another easy diet trick is to go for a walk after eating.
I’m feeling a LOT better than I was yesterday, and I’d have to think that at least part of that was that I didn’t do my first impulse and sit down and eat a bunch of cookies because I was in pain and seeking comfort by eating something tasty.
Don’t get me wrong — I love sugar! Cookies are my friends! I like making them and I like eating them! And doughnuts, cake, ice cream, etc.
I just don’t eat those sugary things very often anymore. That doesn’t mean I’ve cut them out entirely — but I make sure that I only eat them if they are something really tasty and I’m going to enjoy a lot. And then I go back to my regularly scheduled plan of not eating them.
