Smart Rules for Indulging While Staying on Track
And here are some further thoughts to help you stay on track when you splurge:
Slow down and savor.
If you're allowing yourself a slice of your favorite cheesecake, take small bites and savor them. Chew slowly and pause between forkfuls to prolong the enjoyment.
Plan your portions.
If potato chips are your treat of choice, don't eat them from the bag. Measure out individual servings into baggies or a bowl to prevent over-indulging. And if you know from experience that you're likely to lose all control with a certain "trigger food," leave it off your indulge list.
Eat without distractions.
Enjoy your treat in a quiet place where you can give it your full attention. When you mindlessly snack while on your laptop, watching TV or driving, you are more likely to overindulge because you are missing out on the full experience.
Make it real.
When choosing your special treat, go for the real thing and not a less satisfying substitute. If you're craving ice cream, don't choose a low-fat, sugar-free version. Instead, splurge on a small cup of real ice cream made with whole ingredients.
Shake off mistakes.
If you slip up and overindulge, don't beat yourself up. Accept the mistake, get back on track and don't look back.
