You’ve made the change to healthy eating. Good for you. You’ve started down the path of healthier living. However, today your coworker brings donuts to work to share with everyone and temptation is starting to set in. Do not be so quick to give up just yet. There are several things you can do to avoid this urge for a surgery treat and stick to your new food plan.
4 Ways To Avoid Junk Food
Below is a look at four ways you can avoid those donuts sitting in the break room (and other temptations that may come your way).
1. Have a Healthy Alternative Ready - Just knowing there are donuts in the break room can cause cravings. The best way to satisfy this craving is with a healthy alternative. Always be prepared at the workplace by having some healthy snacks available, such as fruit or nuts. These foods are not only high in fiber, but they will also help balance your blood sugar level. This, in turn, can help to diminish your cravings.
2. Drink a Glass of Water Instead - A glass of water can go a long way toward curbing your craving for any type of sweet treat. This is because dehydration can increase your cravings. Always keep yourself well-hydrated to keep cravings in check.
3. Avoid the Break Room - One of the best ways to avoid these donuts is to simply avoid going into the break room, or any other location temptation hides. Do your best to avoid the break room whenever possible, even if these means going out of your way to use a different restroom or get your water from another location.
4. Get Your Mindset Right - Once you know there are donuts in the break room, your mind may start focusing on these surgery treats. Take a moment to clear your mind. Take a deep breath. Then, remind yourself that donuts are always available. You can go to the grocery store and virtually buy donuts at any time. Also, keep in mind that you will be able to indulge occasionally. This means that maybe later when the time is right; you can indulge in donuts.
