Chocolate is so good. And when I eat one piece, I just want 10 pieces. Why is it so good.
Cheat vs. Not a Cheat
- 50 calorie hot cocoa: NOT a cheat
- Non buttered popcorn in moderation: NOT a cheat
- Under 100 cal ice pops: NOT a cheat
- Any treat under 100 cal: NOT a cheat
It’s important not to beat yourself up or deprive yourself entirely of little treats along the way. I have my sugar free hot cocoa with almond milk every night for dessert and it’s usually just what I need, and I know it won’t wreck my diet or progress so I don’t sweat it. Find some low-cal craving crushers to keep your mind and body in check.
Day 4…Paleo New Year.
This year I’m trying to be 90% paleo. I have cut out beans, legumes, most grains, and dairy without a problem. The only exception is dairy in my coffee, my sweet-tooth chocolate fixes, and hummus (chickpeas). Buttttt that’s not so bad considering a month ago my vegetarian diet was 100% beans, quinoa, and soy products. My tummy feels so much better each day and my muscles are growing. :)
How are everyone’s NY resolutions coming along?
