Today has been wonderful
in terms of caloric intake.
I’m 300 calories under my goal!
I wanted to share some things that help me when it gets tough staying away from
temptations and cravings.
It can be hard when you don’t get your sugary fix when trying to lose weight.
I have immense cravings particularly around that time of the month.
I thought I would share some of my favorite alternatives to high calorie sweets.
Above you can see the classic alternative, fruit cup.
I choose to have either diced peach or tangerines but i choose to get the cups with no sugar added.
I really do think they taste better when they’re not sitting in syrup
and I have no guilt.
They have about 30 calories per cup.
They really are sweet and satisfying.
Secondly, sometimes I just get tired of water.
It is difficult to quit sugary drinks such as soda or juices, cold turkey,
so what I like about the Crystal Light individual packs is that you just put some in your water, shake it up and enjoy!
It is sweet and tart and only has 5 calories per serving.
Last but definitely not least I have these Kashi Crunchy Granola & Seed bars with chocolate chips and chia seeds.
They are just the right amount of natural and sweet.
They have the perfect amount of crunch without breaking your teeth.
I love chocolate, so going without it is a difficult task.
When I’m having a craving or just if I think i will break if I don’t have a snack I grab one of the bars
and with 320mg of ALA Omega-3 and two bars at 180 calories each, it is a perfect substitute.
I know everyone is different but I just wanted to share some of the ways I curb those cravings
because no matter what anyone says or thinks
losing weight is hard, in order to lose it, you have to change your whole life.
