Harley Pasternak Shares His 3 Most Useful Tips to Fight Food Temptation

When you're trying to lose weight, it's hard to know what to do with all the temptation that's in front of you. There are cupcakes at the office, endless wine at happy hour, and all-you-can-eat ice cream at your friend's birthday party. Harley Pasternak, celebrity trainer and wellness expert who will appear at the Propel Co:Labs Fitness Festival this year, knows how hard this can be when you're trying to be healthy. We asked him to give us some tips on how to deal with these moments of temptation.

"I think planning your food in advance is very helpful," Harley told POPSUGAR. And he really thinks ahead, "In a typical work day, I'll actually plan out what I'm going to eat the next day so that I'm never stuck starving and trying to think, 'Oh gosh, I better get something soon for lunch or I'm just going to grab the hot dog at the corner.' I think that's something really important."

Another tip Harley gives is "having healthy snacks around you." For example, he usually has "little packets of prepackaged cashews," apples, and "these little protein drinks" around so he always has a healthy option in front of him.


"Last but not least — I have talked about this before — I stay hydrated," Harley shared. "Because when you are dehydrated, you can mistake that with hunger." He also emphasized that it's important to start a workout well hydrated, too.

To recap, Harley suggests you plan ahead, always have healthy snacks on hand, and stay hydrated. Follow these rules and you'll definitely keep your diet on track!
