31 Ways to Eat and Slim #23

23) Strike a balance.

Basically this tip is that no food is off limits. Self says no food is off limits just think of your daily intake as a level scale - if you put something in, take something else out...heading to an over the top dinner? Have a lowfat, high-fiber meals during the day.

My skinny - This can be a slippery slope. Sure no food is "off limits" but if you keep putting the same junk in it's not going to help in weight loss. Besides once you stop eating something you will stop craving it. It takes time but come on have a little self control. Also use an alternative...want a hamburger? Okay cook one at home ... lean ground beef, lowfat cheese, high fiber bun...tastier than that Mcdonalds hamburger and HEALTHIER by a long shot. It works with cookies, cakes, ice cream, etc. Make or buy a lowfat version. Also, craving Oreos buy a snack pack don't buy an entire bag of oreos because you will eat them all even if it is not all at once. Same goes with ice cream...buy a pint that way the half gallon isn't calling your name night after night.
