Diet Idea: Limit Don't Eliminate Foods

Diet Idea: Limit Don't Eliminate Foods

Now that Spring is almost here, many of you have your minds on bathing suit season. Summer is inevitable. If you're trying to maintain the weight you have or to lose a couple pounds, it's true that you can't stuff your face with tons of junk food. That doesn't mean, however, that you need to completely deny yourself the foods you love. Practice a little self-control and limit those not-so-healthy foods you crave, but don't ditch them altogether.

I'm not saying you should eat unhealthy food all the time, but every once in a while, you need to let yourself indulge. Having a few bites of your favorite food can help curb your craving so you don't end up obsessing about it, breaking down, and devouring an entire plate of brownies. Make the word "moderation" your mantra.

Fit's Tips: When you go out to eat, if you want to get some French fries or a brownie sundae, order a kid-sized portion, or split them with a friend.
