Lately I've been really get off track and couldn't control what I was eating and yesterday I looked in the mirror while I was changing and reality slapped me in the face. I've got to stop what i'm doing or i'll continue to gain weight.
SO, what I find that helps me is to plan out your meal beforehand.
I use this app called 'Fitness Pal' which is an app that helps you to keep track of your calorie intake and also how much you have burned. I'm sure any calorie counting app will work fine or you can write it down.
I've used this app in the past and it really helped me to prevent from binging and keep my intake to at most 600 per day. I think that having an idea of how much you will intake beforehand gives you some realization that you wouldn't want to add more calories to that number by binging!
Recently I've been getting into the sugar free jello mix. It's only 80 calories per packet! Which makes a days worth of snacking for me : ) I find it helpful to separate it into atleast 5 containers depending on the size to prevent from eating it all at once.
The same brand also has a pudding mix if you like that better and I think it was about 100 calories per packet, but once again, it makes about a days worth of snacking for me.
I find those better to snack on rather than grabbing a piece of cookie which usually becomes a dozen of cookies for me -.-
So thats what i'll be snacking on for the next week since i'm really bad at restricting from sweets. In Japan, there are so many 0 calorie jelly out there so if I run out of the power mix, I could always run to the convenient store and there will always be 0 calorie jelly.
Wish me luck, and I hope you all a good day<3
