Don’t Buy Junk: How much easier is it to avoid eating junk food when there isn’t any in the house? The answer is: much! Grab plenty of fresh fruit at the market for when you are craving a sweet. Carrots and celery sticks give you something to crunch if you find yourself wanting something with a little more bite to it. Many brands of microwave popcorn offer very low-fat versions of their best flavors, and some even package their servings into 100-calorie portion bags. If other members of your household insist on having their junk food, ask if they can be so kind as to hide it from you. The last thing you need is to open your cabinet while stressed and see an open bag of potato chips looking you in the face. By limiting your exposure to poor food choices, you will be much less likely to make poor food choices.
