- Resist and Reward:
Everyone has different levels of self-control and will power, so itâ€™s important to know your own. If trying a healthier option (as mentioned in the previous post Part 1 of Summer Eating) than why not try the â€œResist and Rewardâ€ method.
If youâ€™re attending many events during the week that revolve around food, try to make all of your choices healthy, but keeping in mind that you will allow yourself one nice â€œworthwhile treatâ€ in a controlled and mindful setting.
Whether your favorite bowl of ice cream, a small slice of home-made pie, or one side of macaroni and cheese, make sure that you donâ€™t waste precious calories on items you â€œsort of likeâ€â€¦and save your once-a-week indulgence on a small portion of your absolute favorite summer food.
Worthwhile, wonderful, and absolutely guilt free!
