Indulge Yourself


So you're craving a cookie? Indulge your craving and have a cookie. Just don't eat the whole box.

Studies have shown that severely depriving yourself of indulgences (like chocolate or french fries) will almost always lead to binging down the road. So allow yourself some treats in moderation, and even it out with a smart food choice, like a piece of fruit. You'll be happier and most likely, it will lead to smarter diet choices.
