Day 79 - Are there any foods that serve as triggers for you to eat poorly? How have you managed this? Share any tips for avoiding a binge.

Haha, that’s basically all the unhealthy foods :D
I usually put them where I can’t see them. That way I won’t be tempted to eat them. 

For cravings:

  • If I’m craving coca cola, I get myself some 100% natural unsweetened juice and mix that with water. It doesn’t completely fulfill my craving but I don’t “need” the cola anymore after that.
  • If I’m craving something sweet, I try to eat grapes. It doesn’t always work but sometimes it does and that’s a start.
  • If I just want to eat something, I go and get some nuts. Those are quite healthy and I can eat them while studying.
  • When I’m really stressed, I’m often craving chocolate. Like two bars of chocolate. What I do when I don’t want to eat that much is that I put all the chocolate in a different room and it has to stay there. I can only go and get myself one or two pieces and I can’t eat them until I’m back in my room. I trick myself into not eating chocolate because I’m too lazy to walk that much :D
