I plan out my food for the day either the night before or first thing in the morning. Even down to snacks. It really helps me because I can see them adding up and make changes where I want. I have it all entered and know what is there and try to keep in mind what the results will be if I deviate.
I know it is still easy to change, but before I do I TRY to change it on my food tracker. This allows me to see how the change will effect me. I have my snacks planned out down to evening too.
It is a daily challenge and I just take it one day at a time. I remind myself that I can allow myself to give in to temptation or not. I ask myself how will I feel if I give into the temptation, and is it worth it.
I may need someone to remind me of this at one point
One day at a time.
