GL's 60-second secret to snacking right

 
Quick Q of the week: “I really want to eat healthy, but I can’t see my favorite food and not eat it. How do I avoid the temptation?”

 

Wellness expert and CEO of girlsgonesporty.com Laura Williams says, “It's all about balance. If you make a food ‘off limits’ you'll just end up wanting it more. Here's what I do: I don't keep my "trigger foods" (like chocolate chip cookies) in the house, but if I find myself craving one, I'll go and buy just one. That way I'm limited to eating a single cookie rather than eating a whole box!”

 

Make it happen! When your snacking options at home are healthy choices, you won’t be tempted to grab the cookies first. “I know it’s tough when you're not in charge of the shopping, but maybe you can talk to your parents about which foods you want to stop keeping on hand as easy snacks,” Laura adds.
