I'm at work.
Sitting on my desk like 10 inches a way is a bag with 5 medium carrots,
5 radishes, 2 turnips.
Because in the conference room, on the table free for all is roughly 20,000 calories
in the guise of every known Twinky type food.
It's kinda wierd but when I walk in the door I get hungry....instead of hitting the
conference room table for a candy snack I immediately get on a carrot.
There is the concept of negatively caloric foods....truthfully there aren't any but many
come close like any and all cruciferous veggies. That said, if I eat two carrots I'm satiated
enough I'm not tempted to down the other temptations.
Hehe I do the same but with apples. I don't really ever diet, but I do follow a general strategy of preemptively stopping cravings by starting with a good breakfast, keeping fibrous and/or high protein foods around and snacking on them before I get hungry, and drinking lots of water. When I stay on track with that I never care for trashy snacks, and by the time lunch and dinner come around I'm good with eating something light.
It's just tough during the holidays because eating is such social thing around this time of year.
