I know that I have portion control issues and a binge eating disorder, but I had not been treating myself as such. I had still been occasionally buying foods that I should not have in my house.
For example: I’d buy a bag of candy corn with this fabulous logic –
“It is only 4 WW points per serving and I earn almost 10 every day working out. I’ll bring the candy corn home and limit myself to one serving each day as a reward post workout.”
Guess what would happen?
I would do great the first day and count out exactly one serving.
However, the second day… I would DEMOLISH the rest of the bag.
From now on my goal is to try and prevent things like this when grocery shopping by asking myself, “If I eat this entire bag in one setting will I get upset?”
Grapes? Nope. Toss them in the cart.
Chicken? No. Put it in the cart.
Huge bag of gluten free pretzels? Yes. They don’t go in the cart.
This doesn’t mean I won’t ever get treats. It just means that I will only buy treats where I can ask, ““If I eat this entire bag/package in one setting will I get upset?” and answer no.
Hello single serving size treats.
What is your favorite individually sized treat?
